THAT THING I MADE...

Is almost ready...

and in case you missed the Official Trailer, shared on the MEOW Facebook and Twitter page, you can take a look at the bottom of this update and share like crazy. I'm really proud of it.

We're in the final stages of post-production. The music is being finalized next week, as well as the sound design. We're also going into a color session next week with one of the midwest's best colorists who is graciously donating their time to our project.

Also, as I type this, T-shirts are being printed, Postcards are being scribed, and Discs and Packaging are being inked and prepped for the authoring of the final film.

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't dying to hold the finished product in my hands. Filmmaking is such a multifaceted and collaborative art form that branches across so many different platforms of expression that it's easy to get lost in what you're doing. First you're simply ruminating on a little nugget of an idea, and then next thing you know you're outlining said idea and writing, writing, writing, then you're storyboarding, casting, makin schedules, crunching numbers, set designing, buying weird props, and shooting, shooting, shooting, sleeping, sleeping, sleeping, editing, rendering, rendering, rendering, emailing, talkin about music, listening to music, talking about sound, listening to sound, emailing, makin websites, emailing, and then writing some more! (not always in that order) It's incredibly easy to get lost in all this and forget what the hell it is you're even doing. And even though in the end, you consume it with your eyes and ears, there's something about holding the finished Bluray, DVD, VHS, or LaserDisc in your hands that snaps you out of your stupor so you can appreciate a moment of clarity with you and your weird little baby you made with a bunch of odd friends.

Well I'm damned excited to bring this weird little baby into the world so he/she can meet all of you (due date: winter). Stay Tuned.
