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.

Myriad of reasons I didn’t get posted, mainly because I misplaced the camera. Anyway, following up on the weekend shooting:

#4 – Way tired Sunday, most of the day spent inside the “freezer”. L to R: James playing dead, Mike, Miles, Rob and Sasha’s just out of frame.

#5- Parking deck crafty.

#6 – Bogart’s is in fact, a mob hangout. Betcha didn’t know. R to L: John, Cory, Dave and bossman Clint.

Felt sort of goofy watching these guys throw each other all over the place while Jason gave them instructions on how to properly jack each other up. L to R: Rob, Drew, Jeff, Ben and Jason

Meant to start this on Monday, but the schedule is tight and I got too much crap to do. Will try and keep uploading snaps throughout.
