    News/Updates

    8/10/09: Finished working draft of screenplay with Patrick Sweeney.

    8/17/09: Principal Photography is set for September 19th and 20th (still need location)

    8/21/09: Location in S.J. locked - Chili Rellenos for Craft Services - LOCKED! :-P

    9/19/09: Principal photography DAY 1 - Big success!

    9/20/09: Principal photography DAY 2 - Another super day. First time working with children
    actors. They didn't seem like kids...hmmm. I must be a kid still.

    10/04/09: Finished rough cut of edit. It's more clear where pickup shots are needed and where VFX
    will be placed. Also spent a little time on the score today roughing ideas out on acoustic guitar and working
    on lyric translation.

    10/22/09: Choir came over to my home studio to record their parts for the soundtrack.
    I've wrote some pretty creepy stuff. My wife gets spooked every time I play it
    BwaaaHaaHaaa ;-)

    10/24/09: More pick up shots for the special effects plates.

    10/29/09: 9pm, the evening before the morning of festival deadline. We're not going to make it in time.
    We were delayed by some a humanitarian project that took precedence over this festival.
    I would rather miss the deadline then submit an incomplete project. I have to shift back into work
    mode for next week and then will complete the film and post it at its new target date of Black Friday,
    Nov 27, 2009. It will be worth the wait :-)

    11/07/09: Readdressing soundtrack and tweaking on it since I have extra time.

    11/12/09: Doing some psychoacoustic research experiments in my laboratory. :-)

    11/24/09: Soundtrack is finally complete.

    11/25/09: Color correcting and grading.

    HERE IS A SCREEN GRAB FROM THE ACTUAL FILM
    Actress: Ann Scott

    SOUNDTRACK:
    One of my favorite parts of filmmaking is composing and sound design.
    I actually start writing the soundtrack while shooting in my head each day.
    I'll post details on my process in this section.

    a) I've got an outline melody written for the film. It came to me as I was
    in preproduction and filming. It's very dark ancient tune.

    Oct 23: The soundtrack I'm working on requires lots of voices.
    The choir came over and recorded their parts. Was fantastic! Did some
    mixing on the 24th. More details about the choir/sopranos to come soon..

    Hi!
    The whole Quija-idea is scary by itself, so great choice of theme... Can't wait to hear more about the plot!

    I'm intrigued to see what kind of monster you'll be dealing with.
    Looking forward to see/hear more.

    Yeah, Ouija Boards scare me too. I like doing films about things that effect me on a deep level, so this one is going to really take me there. :-)

    Looks like this will be sufficiently creepy. I am always wary of ouija boards, too. I'm interested to see what kind of monster it will conjure up.
