The intro to the Baby Makers segment is up!
In other news, we are screening the FINAL FINAL cut tomorrow to a group of industry-savvy folks to get feedback on our distro and promo strategies. Regardless of where it goes from here I’m super proud of what we’ve made — it looks and sounds amazing. Congrats everyone!
We just went live yesterday with a sneak preview clip of the first little bit of the movie. It shows the animated opening, the documentary intro and the introduction of the digital janitor. Please share!
It’s also a part of the Celtx Seeds program, where we’ve additionally posted a little quick-and-dirty interview with a couple of us (edited by Anthony). We focused on a tips/how-to approach rather than, y’know, our motivations and artistic aesthetic. Not that that’s irrelevant, but since Celtx is a scriptwriting app we figured most of the people watching would be fellow filmmakers.
Our plan, as you can see laid out at the newly refreshed ghostswithshitjobs.com (thanks Sean!), is to release short introductions each month of each of the main characters to keep the momentum from the trailer release rolling.
In November we are going to be screening it for a handful of industry-savvy people to give us some insight in packaging it for distro/broadcast/traditional sales. In January I’m being flown to Sundance (on videogame biz, not movie-related) and I’m hoping to maybe set up some meetings with distributors. Any feedback or ideas people have about this stuff is appreciated as it’s totally new territory for me!
Post is coming along with most of the music in place, ADR sessions in progress and visual effects moving along too. (Having more VFX people involved would be a big help, though, if you know anyone.) Remember that ol’ saying about the last 10% taking 90% of the time? Some truth to that.
