Premiere party!!!

Hello all!

It’s been a long time coming, but we’re finally going to have our premiere party in Denver!

I’ve been working on this film – from the very beginning when it was just me highlighting passages in my favorite book of short stories, to the end where the credits finally roll on the film in a few days – almost three years. It’s been my life, and I’ve been through a lot since it started…I’ve been building on this film, pixel by pixel, in every second of my spare time during college, and it’s been a long process, but here we are, and it’s finished.

The showing is going to be at the Oriental Theater in Denver, Colorado, on Sunday, May 20th. Doors will open at 5 pm, and the show will start at 5:30. There will be gifts for the cast, crew, and contributors, and the showing will last about 45 minutes (there will be two other pieces showing that I’ve directed recently, totaling up to about 11 extra minutes). Here’s the link to the facebook event:

This really couldn’t be done without the support of a great many people – the finished film can be credited to no one person, but many people, and I’ve been blessed to have them work on this project with me.

Hope to see you all there!

Dillon Lake – letter of approval! RRRRah!

Yeah, Dillon Lake has been completely approved! Working out insurance stuff at the moment, but the paperwork is moving along. Also working with us are RTD for a location at Union Station, which is going to be awesome!

Google Map links for those of you who are unfamiliar:

We’ll be shooting at the very south end of the Blue River Arm on Dillon Reservoir, with a backdrop of the mountains where Swan Mountain Road traverses.

Cease Fire: Day 01 video

Here’s a small video about the projects first day of shooting. Due to ridiculous logistical issues (including, but not limited to: weather, finances, scheduling, locations, etc), all shooting days have been moved to January in order to get people when they aren’t in the middle of their holidays and year-end work.

I only have the video posted on Facebook at the moment, so click here to view this on facebook.

Teaser graphics…

Everyone, I’d like you all to meet Dylan Blair, who is my special FX artist / editor…he does awesome stuff. Here’s a screenshot of some snow graphics he worked out for the teaser.
