Well, thanks to Winter Storm Jonas, we are absolutely buried in snow. But this is a good thing. I was able to head out and around the neighborhood capturing some winter footage to use as a backdrop for the early parts of the film…
Next stop: snow-covered Times Square on Monday
Looking forward to my first full day of shooting on the 31st!
And with 2016 comes a great deal of Pre-production news on CAPTIVATED: The Allure of Carnivorous Plants!
To our amazing Kickstarter backers: Those of you whose rewards include the carnivorous plants Digital Photo Archive should have received the email with the link on Christmas. (I seem to be following a Holiday theme this year.) If you should have received a link, but did NOT, please send me an email… which reminds me…
Our new website is up. (You’re either reading this on Kickstarter, or…) Please find the new site at http://www.captivatedthefilm.com/
The website is in its nascent stages, but it’s functional. Our email address is on the Join Us page at the bottom.Those of you with screen credits as part of your Kickstarter rewards, please check the information on the Credits page.
Preproduction: About 85% of our equipment is here. Camcorder, shoulder rigs and stabilization equipment, lighting, sound, spares (lightbulbs, batteries, etc.)… All that’s missing is the macro camera and its lighting; that comes early next year. Also, CAPTIVATED will now be produced by “Configuration Q Productions LLC”.
Filming: I’m slated to start filming with Eric on January 31st. Jonathan M. and I have been in talks, we’ll be filming in late February. Matt and I have been exchanging emails, scheduling is in progress, hoping for early February. Ivan has been waiting patiently for me to finalize release forms; once that’s done, I’ll be speaking with his family to confirm his involvement, aiming hopefully for late January. (Now that the website is up, these release forms are my next priority.) Lots in the works!
Thanks to all of our supporters for their patience at these early stages! There will be lots happening in the next few weeks… In the meantime, Happy New Year to you all!
