2018: Year End Review

Looking back on 2018.  It was actually a pretty big year for us.  Here is a quick rundown of several projects that we "released" this year, a few that I worked on elsewhere, and also a brief taste of things to come.

I went on my year and a half delayed Honeymoon to Europe - of which we attained 13+ hours of trip material throughout Rome, Venice, and Barcelona.  (See photo above of our Docu-Gear). Soon after we returned a 12-Minute Highlight Reel was constructed - if you haven't seen it already, check it out HERE!

Then in May we shot (partially remotely in Oregon and the rest in Los Angeles on Green screen by our kitchen), and produced a music video for my Mother-In-Law for Mother's Day.  It grew into something much bigger than intended but we were all happy with the final product.  Check it out HERE!

In September - the 5th and Final Season of The Last Ship premiered, of which I Assistant Edited four episodes of.  Pre-order the Bluray, or hold off and order the entire series Bluray Collection in March!

A few months later the finishing touches were put on my Wedding Highlight Reel just in time for a Halloween release.  Which can be viewed HERE!

The delayed Bluray release of Into the Woods - featuring a brand new Final Director's Cut of the movie presented in Full HD, a handful of new Bonus Material (as well as everything that was featured on the DVD release), and new cover artwork was unveiled to the world at the beginning of November.  You can Stream it now or order a hard copy with all the extras on Amazon HERE!

Also in November - we constructed a practical mini-room and shot a Teaser trailer, for a proposed Spring 2019 release of...see HERE!  Feel free to watch it a few times.  It has a lot of references to movies and other things hidden within.  (See set behind-the-scenes photo above)

It was a big year for Wedding's and Wedding related events for us as well.  My Brother was married in September (see behind-the-scenes photo above) and my Sister-In-Law was married in October.  We documented them both extensively.  Stay tuned for Reels related to those events in the coming months.  My Wedding Documentary is still lingering in Post-Production (in sound/color), along with its myriad of Bonus Content.  New Logos for several of our entities are also in the works.  If all goes well all of these (and several other things) will be completed and "released" by the years end.  Time will tell though, as they are all pretty large projects.

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!
