It’s been a while since the last update. Six months to be exact. That might lead one to think there’s nothing happening at 416-Film, and that’s only partly true.
– We’ve been working on getting our feature film project off the ground. To that end we’ve purchased a RV that plays a large part in the story. Check out the picture of the fabulous 416-Filmmobile!
– And speaking of feature films, Alex Boothby, co-creator of “Cock-Knockers From Outer Space” is shooting his feature film starting this month.
– “Psycho Susie” screened at the Barrie International Film Festival last month. We didn’t win any awards, but we’re pretty sure we got the largest laughs and biggest applause.
– The holiday season tend to put a big damper on film production, but we have a project in mind for early next year. So stuff is happening. Trust me.
– Psycho Susie is now completed and available for viewing in the films section!
– We also completed a 24 hour film challenge at Ed Video last month. The screening is on May 16, when we find out how many awards we’ve won! Positive thinking, I tells ya. The film will be posted here after the screening.
– If we manage to complete “Zombie Surfing” this month, this will be the most prolific 30 days we’ve ever had. …but don’t hold your breath. We have so many ways to procrastinate.
– The screening for Ed Video’s 24 hour film challenge was the other day, and our team took the prize for Best Picture, just like we did for “Keychain of Events” two years ago.
-Our offering this time, “ ‘Egypt Me ” had to incorporate the following elements: a relationship in time, the word “set”, and a body of water. You can check out the flick here.
We have another short film in the can. “Psycho Susie” was shot loosely in the film challenge format. Incorporating some random elements pulled from the internet, the script was written in 4 hours. Shooting was just 9 hours split across two days. The film is now in post-production, where we tend to spend a lot more time on things.
– The exciting thing is that you’ll see a couple of new faces in this film. Our casting call last month introduced us to Neil and Emer, who were quite game for our style of film making, and had a lot of fun helping us make this one.
– I’ve made an update to my HDV vs. AVC debate in the forum, HERE.
As expected the holiday season slowed down progress on productions, but that doesn’t mean nothing has been happening. Just nothing photo worthy, so excuse the text only update.
– 416-Film is having a talent casting call soon. We’re looking for actors that share our twisted sense of humour. Don’t bother submitting your name if you’re interested, we’ve already had a great response and everything is booked. We can’t wait to see what kind of nut bars show up.
