Up late logging footage and watching 8 1/2...
It's been a year since sitting down and importing the first hour of footage into the computer... a lot has been checked off since then, but there's much, much more left to do before we're done. It's exciting... it's overwhelming... mostly the overwhelming part :P
Just a video of Amanda and I hanging out working on Pedal stuff... another late night. Trying to get organized :)
It's been a few weeks since our last video update :( it's always hard to keep up over the new years.
But it feels good to do one of these, we've been keeping ourselves very busy since being back in LA.
Here's a quick update on what's been responsible for my lack of sleep the last week :)
It's been another busy week - I just finished getting the Netflix Competition and the Rooftop Films DVDs all sealed and ready to go for tomorrow! And I was about to export a new teaser, then sit down and get a few more thoughts down on paper for the film.
I have to say the Netflix Competition is a long shot - more accurately; it's a really, really, really crazy long shot - but it feels good to enter and at least give it a shot. You never know unless you try. But I'm pretty excited and anxious about the Rooftop Film Fest. I don't know if it's possible, but I've wanted to attend for the last several years. And being accepted would be a great excuse to buy a ticket to NY!
A quick update on what I've been keeping myself extremely busy with the last week - keep checking back at forthousandsofmiles**** :) it won't be long before we launch the new site.
And don't forget there's still a month left of voting for 64 Days in the Babelgum film fest! Winning would give us all the money needed for post-production! tminus.projectpedal****
Big announcement for us in this update - we launched our brand spanking new film site :) It was a total re-design from the original page and I spent weeks coding it and hope that people like it.
You can check out the new FToM site at ForThousandsofMiles****
And as of today we have 19 days left on t.minus! You're allowed to vote for 64 Days on Babelgum once a day which could help us fund the remainder of post-production! :) tminus.projectpedal****
We're down to the last 24 hours of the Babelgum contest - we really have no idea where we stand at the moment, since the relaunch of their site it's been impossible to even do a rough count of our position. So it will be as much of a surprise to us as anyone when the release their shortlist on the 3rd.
So keep your fingers crossed for us - if you can cast one last vote tr.im/gbpu and tell everyone you think might take a moment to vote. Remember, now there's no signing up for an account or downloading software. Voting could literally take as little as 5 seconds and two clicks.
Larry shared a pretty personal and emotional letter recently - and I asked if he would mind my sharing it on the site.
I realize that many people might find his words in the letter a bit strange - but that was half the point of me reading it... I'm curious how these feelings come across to other people.
For me, the letter makes perfect sense, all the emotions seems right in line with what I went through... with what I'm still going through - but I know that won't be the case for everyone.
