That’s right. The sound mix for Citizen in the Temple is complete. It’s really exciting to think how a film that has taken around 3 years is within days of being done. I just need to drop in the last few vfx shots tonight. In terms of the DePaul MFA, my committee will need to review it then I can begin setting up screenings and start shipping this thing around. The plan is to send it to festivals for awhile before releasing it on youtube. 2015 should be a very busy year. The role-playing game version will be out early next year also. You can check out more on that at Lester Smith’s d6xd6 site. The list and quality of contributors on this project is amazing. How about some pictures? These were taken last night at Columbia. Gotta run. It’s potluck time. Thanks for reading!
Here’s a little poster I put together. We’re gonna be at Con Alt Delete next weekend. It’s our second year there and the second year this convention has been in existence. Last year the weather was terrible and the con was in Lisle. This year…well…hopefully there won’t be as much snow and it’s at the Hyatt Rosemont. Should be a party!
A couple weeks ago we shot another episode of The Con Men at Windycon 41. It is one of Chicagoland’s oldest sci-fi conventions and the birthplace of our show in 2013. Everyone was really great and supportive and we met a lot of new friends. Chris Hutson and Paul Lyzun (the cinematographer I work with) were on hand and that made everything a lot easier. Here it is!
If you’re interested in the full interview with Lauren Faits (Geek Girl Chicago) you can check that out here. She had a lot of great stuff to say so I had to post the whole thing.
Here’s a 2 minute behind the scenes thrill ride. We’d like to pull back the curtain at every show.
What’s next? We look ahead to Con Alt Delete and finishing Citizen in the Temple! Thanks for reading this.
Imagine: you’re in a room with three other half-conscious, half intoxicated figures. All around you are DVD and VHS boxes and bottles of alcohol. Images of monsters, show girls and Sean Connery in a red diaper assault your senses. That is the briefest description of what it will be like at the 2nd annual B-Movie Marathon I’m attending on June 27th.
We return with a new host of B movie gems and we are going to stream the entire experience online at www.bmoviemarathon.com. We will have a chatroom and a google hangout set up so people can join in on the fun (without the funky scent of four dudes in a hotel room). Watch the movies. Watch our crew try to make sense of it all. I guarantee we won’t be able to. We’ll also live tweet the movies. Fellow attendee Paul Brooks had this to say about the event:
Quite right. What movies are we showing? I thought you’d never ask…
Thanks for reading this.
Just posting this here for anyone who may have missed it at http://www.tenwingmedia.com. This is our Acen episode of The Con Men, our fandom-focused web series. Lots of cosplayers. Cool interviews. I love working on this show.
