Frame of the day: Enlow Edition. Joe sent an assembly cut of the pilot last night. I’ve watched it a couple thousand times already. #FrameOfTheDay #Fotd (Taken with instagram)
OH BOY, you guys.
So a lot has happened since we last spoke, yeah? We’re fully funded on Kickstarter, we’re wrapped on the first half of production and we’re in post. Time flies when you’re neglecting your director’s blog, doesn’t it?
One thing at a time.
Thoughts on Kickstarter.
There’s been plenty said about the amazing nature of crowd sourcing, but it’s worth repeating. So many people showed their support for a show that most people haven’t even seen yet. It was a wild experience. Everyday my phone would buzz, and another person would have shown their support. So thanks, everyone. Really. We’re putting that money to good use. We’ll do you proud.
Things were on a larger scale than the first batch of minisodes, and I knew that going into things (heck, I wrote the scripts), but it wasn’t actually an honest-to-goodness reality to me till I found myself shouting to extras through a bullhorn from the top of a building. As Jon said, I was drunk on power immediately.
In all seriousness, I was suddenly dumbstruck. How did this thing move from three kids hanging out in a bedroom to a world filled with extras, teachers, and our camera on a friggen golf cart? Don’t worry, we have plenty of small, intimate stuff too, but wowza, what a weekend!
Now that we’re in to post, start looking forward to more frames-of-the-day, plenty of behind the scenes photos, concept artwork, and a teaser or two towards the new season. It’s going to be so much fun, guys. I can’t wait to show everyone what’s up.
Finally, I wanted to make sure everyone realizes the minisodes are coming down soon. Like we mentioned on Kickstarter, “they’re only up for a limited time”. They’ll be back soon, I promise. It’s just that they were designed to help us raise our fundraising goals, and they have. They’ll be re-released to a new, larger audience when the season actually launches. It’s not “goodbye”, it’s just, “see you later”. So watch ‘em again real quick if you’re gonna miss them (and I know you are), and rest assured they’ll be back, and they’ll be surrounded by feature episodes, new minisodes, and more blog posts than you’ll know what to do with.
