We haven’t posted any updates in a while, mainly because I’ve been busy writing a few short films, a feature film, and working on several short films for other filmmakers. But we should have some more videos up on our YouTube Channel soon. It’s kind of sparse right now, but it will grow quickly.
Our feature film “Misfit Heights” had a good showing at GenCon and we saw a number of wonderful films in the film festival. It’s always fun to attend a festival where the filmmakers are devoted to making entertaining films that they are interested in seeing. It’s what we created Unfettered Entertainment for and it makes us feel good to know there are others excited about growing and learning in this art like we are. It creates a creative community where anything can happen and we can’t wait till next year!
“Misfit Heights” also showed at DragonCon this year, but we weren’t able to attend. So I hope it had a good showing and if anyone saw it there please let us know what you thought.
“Space Ale” has been kind of slow in the post production aspect. We only have one guy working on the special effects and those take quite a bit of time to put together. Especially when you have to build several different kinds of ships. Keep an eye out because I want to start pushing this production forward, it’s time to finish this production.
We had our first production meeting of 2013 and here’s where we stand. Our feature film “Misfit Heights” is ready to be distributed this year. It was accepted into the Chicago Comic and Entertainment expo in April and we submitted it to this years GenCon and San Diego International Comic-con. So we are working on a kickstarter campaign to raise funds that will allow us to attend these festivals as well as release the film physically and digitally. Distribution is expensive, especially if you’re trying to do it on your own.
Our web series “Space Ale” is currently in post production. Currently Robert Durland is working on our special effects and the band Neil & Sky is working on our intro song. We are looking for a composer for the underscore and a post sound designer for the mixing. If you’re interested, send us a message.
We started to go over our next project and during the reading of the rough draft we couldn’t stop laughing. Apparently it’s pretty amusing to read any of my first rough drafts aloud. I have to write things down so I don’t forget them, so a brief story is added in order to try and plot the script. Yet, sometimes ideas change mid script and I don’t go back to correct the previous scenes until the full script is written. So it jumps all over the place and action scenes are generalized to the point that they don’t really describe the action. At one point, the action included a line explaining how a doctor was examining a corpse that has a bunch of holes in it where creatures have borrowed through the body. However the action just read “the doctor lifted limbs and prodded holes.” It described a different kind of action than we were going for. Maybe someday we will film a reading of one of my first rough drafts and you can laugh at my expense.
