Two Pieces of Good News

Guy reports that he has gotten the flying insect effects working. I assume this means something other than him filming himself with cardboard wings and coat-hanger antennae, spinning around the room shouting "I'm a bee! I'm a bee!" then overlaying thousands of tiny copies onto the beetle-room scene.

Why is this good news? Because the bug effects were our final major post-production hurdle, and now there is very little standing in the way of this film being actually done.

Before Guy speaks up, let me add that any other existing post-production hurdles he might mention are now officially minor ones, easy tweaks that can be finished in an afternoon. I declare it to be so.

The second piece of good news? We (meaning Guy) have begun festival submissions! The pebble of "Zorg and Andy" has been kicked over the edge of the glacier, sure to become a massive, devastating avalanche! Run for cover!

Season's greetings, everybody.

Congrats everyone!


P.S. Time for a new trailer? :-)

" I assume this means something other than him filming himself with cardboard wings and coat-hanger antennae..."

Fine. I'll start over, okay? Sheesh.

Thanks, Scott! New trailer in the works! Well, it's on the to-do list to be in the works! Soon!

Happy holidays to all!

For the record, I really want to see Guy flying around me in that room. It would definitely explain my agitation...

Well done Z & A gang! Oh also, I recently got married. Sorry PIG but I couldn't wait forever could I!....could I?

Great news, Ben! Many congratulations!

Pig will get over it eventually. Or not. Either way, it's his loss.

Just to be on the safe side, you may want to assume new identities as quickly as possible...

I gave you the best week of my life, Ben...and THIS is how you repay me? I see how it is.


I miss everybody. When are we starting the shoot for the sequel?

just kidding...well, mostly.

Thanks to everyone who has continued working hard on the completion of this film! I'm looking forward to seeing the final version almost as much as I'm looking forward to working with you again in the future. :)

(and please, please include the Cardboard Bee in the special features. I believe we've reached consensus there.)

So, I just visited our page on IMDB and saw that the film is now completed. SWEET! I can't wait to see it! Any projection as to a date DVD's are gonna be sent out?

I mean, I know your general attitude about projected dates and deadlines, Guy. I'm just wondering.

Love (and miss) you all!

Guy said...

Pig! Yes, the movie's done! Full blog post to follow! Projections are for ninnys and are almost always wrong! Don't know why! Never thought I'd ever use the word "ninny!"

Miss you, too!
