Reaching our Indiegogo Goal

We reached our Indiegogo Campaign GOAL!

A super big THANK-YOU to all the people who are now part of our filmmaking team for our feature film LOST PENNY. Whether you contributed funds to the campaign, or shared it with your friends and family (or even your enemies). We appreciate it.

Thanks to all the crew members who came out and helped us make our campaign videos back in May and June. (You know who you are!) Especially to Bill Hobbs, our "Not-the-Director", who became the face for the campaign.

We'll be keeping everybody updated as to the progress of this movie. And, of course, if you donated... we'll be working on those perks.

But first, we have to make this movie!

We look forward to the finished project...

A Little Pre-Production Filming

We're off to a great start with this new film. On Tuesday, we set up lights in one of our main locations. Then, in the afternoon, we did some pre-filming with a group of background actors, with the hopes that if everything goes well, we'll have footage for the movie! It was also a time for us to work together as a crew.

Filming went very well. Which is important since principal photography begins in about a month from now. Here are some pics from Tuesday's shoot.

By the way, we are still looking for more Background Actors for August. Check out the details at our website...

NEW! Our Indiegogo Campaign has been extended... until Friday, July 18th. So, you still have time to contribute! Thanks to all who have contributed so far. Appreciate all of you!

Lost Penny in a Nutshell

People have asked us about what our new movie, LOST PENNY, is about. So we've posted a new video that tells the plot of the movie and introduces the main cast...

We're in our final weeks of our Indiegogo Campaign for this movie. We've added some fun perks.

1) "Hide an Easter Egg" for $125
It's a filmmaking tradition to "hide" a surprise or inside joke called an "Easter Eggs". (Disney does it all the time.) With this perk, you get to choose an Easter Egg for us to hide in our film (subject to our approval)... Maybe it's an old photo of your grandmother that we can put in a frame in Penny's house; or a snapshot of your kids that can go on Penny's fridge; or your name can be on the letter Penny's mom gets, with your signature at the bottom! There are lots of possibilities. Make your mark on this movie forever. (Plus you get a DVD of the movie.)

2) "A Song Dedicated to You" for $200
You can have one of the songs from the soundtrack dedicated to you in the credits. That's right. As the credits scroll by, there's "your" song, dedicated to "your name". (Plus you get an MP3 of the song + copy of the DVD)

Check out all the perks at:

Screenwriting and Lightbulbs

Ever wonder what it takes to get a script to principal photography? Each script goes through a lot of drafts!

Here's a joke that illustrates this. Of course it's a light bulb joke, but there as with all jokes, there is some element of truth to it. That's what makes it funny.

How many screenwriters does it take to change a light bulb?
Answer: Ten.

1st draft. Hero changes light bulb.
2nd draft. Villain changes light bulb.
3rd draft. Hero stops villain from changing light bulb. Villain falls to death.
4th draft. Lose the light bulb.
5th draft. Light bulb back in. Fluorescent instead of tungsten.
6th draft. Villain breaks bulb, uses it to kill hero's mentor.
7th draft. Fluorescent not working. Back to tungsten.
8th draft. Hero forces villain to eat light bulb.
9th draft. Hero laments loss of light bulb. Doesn't change it.
10th draft. Hero changes light bulb.

By the way, we're currently working on the script for our newest feature film, LOST PENNY. We have an Indiegogo Campaign set up to raise funds for the movie. We're offering some fun perks. Check them out at:
