This is what a wrapped feature film looks like.
The film which I deemed most likely to succeed, based on these submissions, is in the can, or, more accurately, in the hard drive. Mission accomplished and ready to edit.
It can be done.
My only regret is that with multiple films in various stages of development, currently, I wasn't able to bring together all of the fine offers on this thread into one magnum opus. But I have my eye on it, still, and often think about what is possible here.
Momentum on these threads dies quickly, but films can take many years to move from development to reality, especially ambitious ones. The lifespan of a forum thread and the amount of time it takes to develop a big project could not be more diametrically opposed.
But I still think about this - and what is possible - and I still keep my eyes open.
why thanks, Gunleik -
next big challenge will be turning a pretty pile of footy into a good story.
as grueling as most production schedules are, you are only halfway there, by the end of them. a lot of heavy lifting still lies ahead.
I always say you climb five mountains on the way to completing a film: the screenplay, pre-production, production, post-production, and sales/distro
each one of these is a mountain, and when you are done shooting, you're over the hump but still at the midpoint.
making features is not for the faint of heart.
Let's see some stills. I'm very excited to see how this project turns out.
I doubt I'll be permitted to post stills we are further along the post-production pipeline, in fact as producer, I think it is a bad idea, no matter how excited you are to unveil the film. It is generally not smart to post until editorial is complete (you run the risk of posting stills from scenes which are cut) or before the colorist has worked on the files (the reasons for that should be fairly obvious). But there's a lot of production stills here (there's no official set photographer in the micro-budget world, just people pitching in):
I'll post some, though, when we have made better progress. The edit is probably 6 months out....
