Progress Continues: A Post Production Update

by Zack on October 12, 2010

This will be brief. But, An Update!:

OK, OK, it’s been a month since we returned from Europe. And while Mike and I took a few days to get our lives back in order, we quickly got back to work. This weekend, Mike flew to DC to meet up with me and firm our strategy for the next few months. What did we decide? Glad you asked.

First of all, we have made the decision that we have too much content for a documentary short (30 minutes). That being the case, we are going to embark on a feature-length documentary. This means that our plan to have something by November is being delayed a good 4 months or so. It also means that we are going to do some additional interviews and shooting – but not too much. But it also means that we are going to make a FULL LENGTH FEATURE DOCUMENTARY.

So, our new plan is to have (possibly but not likely) a trailer by Thanksgiving. More likely, however, is that we will have a fully realized clip from a very pivotal section of the documentary complete by that time. This is very exciting for a number of reasons.

Also, we are putting the screenplay on the side-burner. We are still working on it (and making really really good progress), BUT our primary focus right now is the documentary. So, all you people waiting for rewards, be patient, they will come and we will not forget about you.

So that’s where we are at right now. We are both still very excited for this project and want you to know that we are continuing to work very hard on it. Progress may be slow, but it’s only because we recognize how important it is to make sure that we are doing everything right. This is, after all, our first feature-length documentary. Your patience is appreciated. And so is your support. As usual, it’s everyone reading this who has made our project possible so far and will continue to make its future possible.

Way to go, Mike. I am so happy you are working on a feature length film. Stay in touch.

Very excited to hear that you’re making this feature length, Mike.
If you have the time, take it. It will be worth it.
Just to reiterate, if I can be of any help, please let me know.
