Double or Nothing

September 27, 2010

Alright folks, time for another update. This week I’ll be talking about the GWP film, “There’s a Zombie at My Door”, as well as one of the films in progress that I am working on.

First up is “There’s a Zombie at My Door.” One of the things that have been taking some time has been the score. We’ve had someone outside of GWP working on the score, so I was a bit worried about how things would turn out. As of Yesterday we now officially have the score! I have yet to listen to it myself, but the person editing the film together has approved of the music himself.

Secondly, more news for the film. I recently got on a radio show called Transitions, a weekly internet radio talk show. While there I promoted “There’s a Zombie at My Door”. You can listen to the show and interview here.

Next on my list is the film I’ve been planning to write on my own. Well, it really is on my own. I contacted several people about it, but no one has responded to the first contact. One person seemed interested, but has yet to answer back about several questions. I’ve decided to get to work on this on my own since no one seems to want to go anywhere. Now, I could work with the people at GWP, but this is one project I want to do outside of GWP. GWP is mainly focused on low budget Comedy and Horror, and this film does not fit under this umbrella. Also, my main partner at GWP is timid when it comes to the idea of budgets and raising money, so he won’t be working on any budgeted films anytime soon.

I really broke off from everyone to write this script because I am tired of people being timid and unresponsive. I’ve been wanting to work on a film like this for a while, but the group of friends I made at college, a creative and ambitious lot in college, have become timid upon entering the real world. Recently many of them have become unresponsive to me as well. It seems they no longer have an interest in working on films, which leaves just me. Of course this doesn’t apply to every member of that group of friends I had. One of them has actually maintained that creativity and ambition from college. Sadly, that person isn’t a writer, more of an actress. However, she may be the one person in the group to have anything to do with this film after I’m done writing.

The Tale of Two Films

September 13, 2010

Okay, it’s update time folks! Well, right now I’m waiting to hear about the score for our film, There’s a Zombie At My Door, which we should have in our possession very soon. It’s the last piece of the puzzle if you will, and for the final edit to go forward we need it. After we get it we should have our film completed inside of a week, with a trailer another trailer announcing our release date. What? You mean you didn’t see the first trailer? Well, luckily for you I’ll post a link to it right here.

Secondly, I’m planning to take the ball and run with it. I’m currently doing a little market research and planning another film. I’ll probably do this one on my own, as in outside Grim’s World Productions, but may end up bringing GWP into the mix anyway. There’s no script yet, I’ll probably start on it next week. For now I’m basically looking at the market and seeing what would work.

I should also probably mention that despite the title of this post, there’s actually three films right now, although the third film is up in the air. The third film is a remake/prequel to a student film that me and a bunch of friends worked on for a college class. The film was actually suggested by one of my friends from the original project. The original was really our first shot at filmmaking and the friend was thinking about taking what we’ve learned since then to improve upon the idea and possibly make something professional. The friend had even started on a script for the idea. However, it’s been a while since I’ve heard anything about it, and it’s been a while since the last update, so I don’t know where the film currently stands.

Well, that’s it for now. Hopefully we should have the music for “There’s A Zombie At My Door” soon.

Blogging again

September 8, 2010

Well, it’s been a while since I’ve last posted. Things have been happening recently, I’ll give a quick bit here about stuff, but go to the actual pages for more info.

First off the main project I’ve been working on is a short film, There’s a Zombie at my Door. As you can tell it’s a zombie film, but I think the way we went with it is pretty interesting. This is of course a GWP film so I hope this turns out well.

Those who have read some other posts will note my luck with writing the novel. Well, I have once again hit a wall with the novel. Mainly because I’ve been working on that film above, and once this is done I hope to get back to it.

Hopefully I’ll post again next week.
