Our film has been received by the good folks at the Sundance Film Festival. Now we wait until Decemberish to find out if we're in, while we work on cleaning up the movie (soundmix, color, etc). I can never thank everyone enough for all the hard work they've put in.

We have a rough cut & it looks good. Now on to the tightening, then the sweetening, then the distributing!

So it's been almost three years since we announced to the world our brilliantly over-simplistic four step process of how to make a movie by not making The Movie in your Head. A few short months after that, these vague thoughts solidified in our all important lessons learned and most importantly, our 7 steps to make a movie.
And there was no turning back. Now, a full 30 months later, we're on to step 5:
5. Shoot the Movie.
This is the point where we've gone from talking about making a movie, to planning on making a movie, to actually making the movie.
In just three days, cameras roll. For the first time, we get to see the final images of the movie in our head re-etched into our brains with the finality of the actual images that will make the film, the actual perforamces that pull all our words thoughts and ideas to life.
We film throughout June, and then it's on to step 6...

A group photo from Sunday Night's read through. Note the smiles on everyone's faces that genuinely reflect the true joy of the moment, and have nothing to do with any nearly tragic yet hilarious accident that may have happened seconds earlier from a camera timer mishap.

When we started this blog three years ago, we did so not so much out of the pretension that anyone would actually read it who wasn't already involved with what we did, but based on the idea that we wanted to remember what it took to get there, and that forcing ourselves to write down some sort of detail about every step in the process, we'd have a more or less objective way to gauge what we did and what it took to get there. But the problem with Blogging as documentation is this: When you're not making progress you have nothing to blog about, and when you are making progress, you have no time to do it. Fortunately, that's why the good lord invented bullet points. So without further ado, I interrupt my incessant rambling about how I have no time for incessant rambling to present a nice concise bulleted list of what we've been up to lately:

So the kiss of death for any blog is to start out with "Sorry, I haven't posted in a while." I was looking through my iGoogle page with all my RSS feeds, and noticed that about half the blogs on there start with phrases very similar to that, which happens to be the last post I've seen for three years. So I'll refrain from pointing out the obvious, except to say we've been keeping busy, but mostly doing stuff that's not very interesting to show or write about. Until now. Two Sundays ago, Words Pictures Movies completed filming, "Dead People Making People Dead", our last film of the Bush administration. We don't have any photos of our own yet, or an expected release date, but Neil, the person we most like to kill over and over again, has passed the threshold from dead to undead, and posted an awesome picture in his own blog: http://www.neilfein.com/2008/11/brains.html Also, on the same Sunday, photography began on "Everything Fred Tells Me is True", our much anticipated first feature film. At least its anticipated by us. More information to follow. One day.

Here's how the process came together: Bigger pictures here. The next step is to remove the imperfections, and create a latex on top of the bust. Stay tuned for the finished mask, and the final dream proof of concept!
