Inching Closer

September 21, 2009

As we enter the last week of principal photography for Leaving, we stand at 10 scenes out of 13 being filmed in their entirety and ready to go to the cutting room floor. It has been a productive and fun-filled 4 weeks of collaborating with friends and family, to say the least. We’re going to knock out the last three scenes we have scheduled this week, then I am going to dive head first into the editing process. We plan to have this available for your eyes in early October.

See you soon. In the meantime, here is your entire cast and crew list…

Neckbrace Substitute is “Leaving”

September 3, 2009

I know there has been yet another dry spell when it comes to posting around this establishment, but I assure you there has been no lying around and festering on my part. After the successful Neckbrace Substitute Music Festival 2.0 that Tony Marshall and I organized on August 15th, the world of the Neckbrace has only gotten busier. A little over two weeks ago, my good friend Robert Mathison had a spontaneous fusion of thoughts and desires which led to him writing three-fourths of a full-length screenplay in the span of an entire day. When he came to me with the idea for this new project, a drama/comedy called Leaving, I was immediately ready to take on this fairly large task in any contributing way I could. I am pleased to say that at this moment we are past the groundbreaking moments of the filming process, and have dove head first into another try at the full-length film process. Robert is the sole writer and the main star of the film, which is almost entirely based on the real life events that we are all experiencing today, and especially him. I was ecstatic when he asked if I would direct and edit the film, to say the least.

So we are off on another journey of the daunting kind, but this time with a much more organic and relaxed feeling when it comes to every aspect of the creation process. Look for more information to come on a regular basis as we steamroll through the Leaving process. We plan to have it in the can and available to you all by the end of this month.

See you soon.
