HALLOWEEN 2018 Exclusive: 10/8/16: REEL

https://youtu.be/IQyT1ZPGwl0
For Halloween this year I am releasing something a little bit different than usual (but more current) - my Wedding Highlight Reel!  That being said, it still has a bit of a horror twist.  The look of the video is highly inspired by 2007's Grindhouse.  It also features Zim Home Video/Z3 Films archival props, costumes, several actors and crew, one of the VHS Camcorders that we used to shoot with in the old days, and more!

This Reel arrives just a little over 2 years after our Wedding Day.  Mainly due to the fact that only days after we returned from Illinois, I jumped back on The Last Ship for back to back seasons.  So throughout the next year and a half I only had small windows of time to work on this project (which ultimately consists of a Highlight Reel, a feature length Documentary, and a Myriad of Bonus Material all destined for a Blu-ray "release").

Then after work on The Last Ship commenced - we made our way to Europe for a proper Honeymoon. While we were abroad we shot somewhere around 13 hours of footage spanning the 12-Day trip. So when we returned I dug right into the Honeymoon footage and cut it down to a reasonable Documentary length. Then we chopped that down further into a 12-Minute Highlight Reel, which we "released" online in August, and can still be viewed HERE!

After our Honeymoon Reel was complete I got deep into the editing process of this Reel, and the other Wedding Day materials. So this Halloween, I give you 10/8/16: The Reel!

CHECK 15's HALLOWEEN



Kyle Smith and his team have been making these Cancer Awareness shorts and releasing them on the 15th of every month since December 2013. They are always insanely well-done and creative, while also being informative.  For Halloween this year we were finally able to contribute (in a small way) to one of them in the form of letting them borrow our Michael Myers Mask. You can check it out in all its glory in this month's "Check 15's HALLOWEEN" HERE!

HALLOWEEN 2017 Exclusive Film: NIGHTMARE

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MLTpvjrLExY&t=607s&list=PLvegxIvfKqqhvoljY5kok_w69in4UlnNJ&index=1
This holiday season we've decided to share our first completed feature length film - Nightmare! It was shot off and on as a side project (within many other projects) from 1997-2001.  Sometime in 2000 we finally buckled down and produced additional connective tissue to bring a handful of the scenes together.  We shot on VHS and Hi-8 and cut mostly linear with a rudimentary home editing setup consisting of a camcorder, a boom box, and a VCR.  Some minor visual effects, the opening title sequence, and some sound mixing were done near the end of post-production.  This movie is not for sale and all un-original materials are the property of their respective owners.  It was made for the joy and entertainment of those involved.  HAPPY HALLOWEEN 2017! Watch Nightmare HERE!
