We don’t need no stinkin badges…

Well, here I am again, in pre-production. Excited. Terrified. Occupying an emotional tilt that could be likened to the climax of the 1986 film SPACE CAMP— wherein the Space Shuttle Atlantis is low on oxygen, has missed the last safe re-entry window, and is actively de-orbiting whether it has an LZ or not. Perhaps I’m 12-year-old Joaquin Phoenix in this scenario, too enthusiastic and naive to truly appreciate the danger. But it’s happening.

The agonizing details are done. Screening this weekend.

Well it’s been an interesting journey, but el short film San Souci Showdown is done and about to be tossed to the wolves this Saturday Oct. 22 at Mission Valley, 4PM. Come one, come all and enjoy delicious on tap NC beers at my favorite Raleigh movie-house.

6 days of filming, ~6k budget and some great local talent. I had maybe some impossible expectations, but I’m pretty content with finishing it up. I have learned many things, the most important being (once again)- anytime I think I know maybe a little bit about something, in reality I know nothing. (Yes, Jon Snow, there is no Santa Claus???)

So, learning things is good. Getting your ass handed to you by your own stupidity is necessary. It’s always a desperate quest to get out of my own head and actually put something together. We’ve got a finished product and that’s an accomplishment. There will always be parts I love and parts I hate, but it should manage a few laughs and it looks pretty sharp. I look forward to seeing and hearing some reactions.

San Souci Production Blog #7

Blood, guns and violent fun. At least 50% of the reason for this project, right? Our second weekend of filming was packed with technical setups so it made for long days, but everyone seemed to have fun. Enjoy a whole slew of bts snaps below. Also, production protip for the weekend: When firing blanks and squibs indoors, bring plenty of earplugs.
