FOREST BORN

03_head_on_treeTime for an update! After a thrilling shoot (during which, miraculously, no one got injured, though lead actor Eric Newcombe came close) and some long weekends of editing, we have locked picture and are prepping for the final color grade and sound mix. And of course, fundraising continues so that we can pay for all this – much is owed to many.
We also finally have a title: FOREST BORN. Stay tuned for more news soon…


Into the Forest

Forest_image_CD2We’re gearing up for the next short film, the Untitled Forest Project. These days are all about finalizing the camera package and other equipment, hiring the last crew members, and taking care of a million other logistical details.  Even more importantly, we’re brainstorming shots and refining and deepening the creative vision. Next Saturday the core Bay Area team will drive up to Portland, meet up with our local partners-in-crime, and the real work begins.
