Well now that we’re moving forward with a funded feature project, I’m putting everything else on the back-burner for the time being. Not really a big shocker there. Looks like the 50s Sci-Fi thing is going to have to wait.
And the Film we are moving forward with is BURN. I should probably rename this to the “Phoenix Project” seeing that we are resurrecting it but after looking at the budget we have to work with, and getting the biggest bang for the buck per dollar, we decided this would be a good first feature endeavor.
Hot girls, some comedic elements, some over the top horror elements, a little religious fanaticism, a really distorted and twisted antagonist,…and we have good first feature potential here I think.
We are looking into the main Mansion location for this, and I’m currently working on the main creature / burn victim design. Once we have those two elements locked down, the rest should go down relatively smoothly.
We’ll be shooting it on Red, so I’m pretty excited about that. I’m going through the screenplay doing a few alterations on it. It needs a better ending and a little more structure but the basis is definitely there. We’re looking at an early Aug. shooting time-frame, about 16 to 18 shooting days so we have about 4 months to get pre-production ready for it. A lot of work obviously.
I think we have a good shot at pulling it off. Here’s to good wind and relatively smooth sailing.
