I know, I know. It’s been a while. It’s been kind of a crazy few months. To recap:
-Due to unforeseen circumstances, our Director of Photography, Marc Menet, had to bow out of the project. Though we were disappointed to see him go, we wish he and his family all the best.
-Because we learned about this complication about two weeks prior to shooting day 1, we scrambled to find a new DP to fit into our tight schedule… but after about a week, we decided it was best to postpone, rather than trying to fit a square peg into a Sex City.
-Darkness falls… I got pretty depressed for about a week. But fortunately, at the end of that week, we exceed our Kickstarter goal of $1,500 by $250. And to top that off, we received $4,000 from the school (with an option for more) bringing our budget to approximately $7,500. So, yeah, I started to feel pretty good about things, and I was ultimately happy we didn’t shoot in October… we now had time to really make sure things were perfect.
-So we decided to postpone until January, mostly due to the fact that Everything is Terrible had a hard deadline for our Holiday Special/tour, which I am pleased to report is running smoothly. The cut is fine-tuned and being pressed as I type this. I spent all weekend in a garage with Yonder Vittles, making Lite-Brite-like Christmas trees for the live show. I picked up Ghoul Skool from the airport last night and we are all very, very tired. Commodore Gilgamesh is missing and feared to be dead.
-Anyway, back to Sex City. We decided that the first two weeks of January would be best, since we can roll right from the tour into Sex City. With those dates in mind, we re-locked our locations, and welcomed aboard our new DP, Erin Hughes.
So we are officially back in business, and I’ve made a promise to myself (and now to you) to post on this blog at least once a day, to keep all of our investors/crew/interested parties informed. So… beware or something.
