Sorry it’s been a while since I’ve updated.
We recently just sent out our first festival submission to the New York Television Festival. We sent out The Difference Between, and had one day to do it. Julie informed me on Thursday. Sigh.
So, we had 5 dvds to burn, plus promotional materials, including the following screenshots from the short. Hope you enjoy them!
I then had to figure out how to package the dvds. I recently got a job with a company that makes some great printed invites, books, etc. I was lucky enough to get this job as I enjoy print much more than I do web design.
The thing is, for the past 8 years, I’ve mainly been doing production, and trained monkey production to boot.
The first day on the job they had me create some envelopes. I’d never done that before. With the help of a simple template and some instruction, before long I was loving it. So I decided to create my own DVD envelopes.
With some printed material, including bios and a director’s statement, we sent out a pretty great overall package. I hope that they enjoy the short.
Let’s see. What else.
I am currently editing the 3rd episode of Off Off, and will be editing episode 4 tomorrow with the director.
This morning I went to go see the indie film Safety Not Guaranteed. Here’s the trailer:
THERE BE SPOILERS AHEAD, ARGGHHH.
It was… ok. I had some higher hopes because my producer, Julie, saw it and enjoyed it a lot. To me, it was a cliched storyline with unmemorable characters. Particularly the main reporter and the Indian intern. There were so many opportunities for comedic moments, but also to use the idea of time travel to mess with the audience. In the end, it went exactly as one would expect, with no resolutions to speak of, and I left the theater disappointed.
Done with spoilers.
Ok, back to editing. Hope you’re all well! The second season of 8 for Vegas begins shooting in two weeks or so!
All the best,
