The Long and Winding Road – That leads to SUCCESS!
Finally finished all of my editing on the film around August 2nd. Then I had to begin looking around for a third party to help us on our final Dolby 5.1 sound mix. After some false starts and dead ends, I decided to go with my old friends at Chapman Recording. I have known Chuck for years and I trust him and his company to treat my baby the way I would treat it…. Got Evan the files right before I left town last week for some film related business in Florida. I got back Saturday morning, did the always awesome Crypticon Horror Convention all weekend and then got together today with Evan and he showed me what he had so far…. blew my mind. It its really coming along. Seems like an eternity in some ways, but also seems like it was only yesterday that I was just starting the editing process.
The Crypticon was a major success for Chazz and the gang as well as for Extreme Entertainment. Every year it seems we get more solid connections, plus we were able to hang with old friend like Lew Temple and Allan Kayser who starred in House of Forbidden Secrets, but also with some old friends like BIll Moseley, Sid Haig, Doug Jones and others, We had a blast and I look forward to next year!!! A big thanks goes out to the whole Extreme core crew who really stepped up and held things together while I was in Florida.
Looks like we will be moving forward soon on a new feature, Dreaming Purple Neon – so it is very important to make sure that “House” is finished to the best of our ability – film festivals are knocking on our door and I am very excited about the film finally being unleashed this Fall. Our first film festival looks like it may be in Las Vegas – we have been accepted to the PollyGrind Film Fest and it should be a blast! With Dyanne Thorne and Howard Maurer being so close to Vegas, my hope is to bring them to the fest for a Q&A before or after the screening.
Stay tuned, I’ll be posting more updates soon – as well as a “Look Back” retrospective on the entire shoot… I am so excited that this creation is about to fly into the world!
