This is the hardest letter, I mean blog, I’ve ever had to write.
Indie film is hard, and the sad truth is that sometimes the timing just doesn’t work out. In the studio world, if the timing of the film isn’t quite right, you can spend more money to make it fit. But in the indie world, money doesn’t exist.
It pains me to say that I have decided to POSTPONE the shooting of “Now Upon A Time” until this time next year. I know. It sucks. But things are simply not lining up the way I had hoped, and the way they need to, for our July shoot dates to be viable. (Yes, July. …think I forgot to mention that I’d already pushed it back from May… Oh well. Moot now.)
Now, all that said, this film IS going to get made. Just not this year. And this blog is not only going to stay active; it is going to EXPAND. Significantly. Over the next couple months, we will be converting this blog into a fully formed website with the aim of being THE destination for online film education and reference. I’ll keep you up to date as things develop.
So, while it is disappointing to me to have to abandon our current timetable, it is incredibly exciting to know that, with the extra year of preparation time, this film is going to be all the better for it! In other words, this movie is going to kick aaaaaaaaauuuuuhhhhh…butt.
So stay tuned! We’re not going anywhere. If anything, you’ll be seeing a lot more of us.
This week’s lesson:
In the independent film world, timing is
everything. …and it is trying to kill you…
