Today marks the “6 week till principal photography” countdown and things are right on track. In only three weeks I will be heading up to Utah with my art department to begin setting up shop. Once we are in Kanab we are pretty far removed from the outside world. As any small town, there is a grocery store and a little hardware shop, however this won’t be able to meet the down-to-the-wire demands of a feature film. So we have been preparing heavily before the move to make sure we will have everything in place and no time will be lost.
This week Production Designer, Alex Eastwood, will be writing on the blog to discuss his large contributions to the film. As a film set during the turn of the century American West, Alex has had the most daunting task of any department. In the blog, he will discuss his vision, challenges, and personal goals for the road ahead. Look forward to that Friday (6/22/07).
Also premiering on this website in less then a month will be the webisodic documentary series centered around the creation of the film and personal journeys of it’s makers. Filmmakers Roman Safiullin and Chris Walker will be traveling to Utah to capture every moment, for better or worse, to premiere only days after the shooting. Then you as the viewer can leave comments, ask questions, and give feedback to the filmmakers live as you watch the film in it’s creation.
The entire experience will be very exciting and I am looking forward to sharing it with all of you. Please continue to check in and spread the word.
