And that's a wrap!

I've been MIA from the updates for a while now. Between the day job and the weekend project things have been crazy busy. We shot our two pickup dates on Saturday and Sunday and it was worth all the hard work and effort that went into it.

You never get EVERYTHING you need or want, but we certainly got enough of it to give us some nice options putting this thing together. Plus our redo of the opening scene of the trailer that didn't work at Vanguard turned out fantastic.

While many people have helped and continued to help make this thing happen...two people put in the extra effort this past weekend to help out in very thankless ways. First was Todd who designed and helped build the DJ Booth and was on a ladder for a couple hours helping to assemble our set on location. Plus he helped out playing Gunther and as if that wasn't enough he's building our website too.

Secondly (not because she comes second but because I want to close with mentioning her) is, of course, Liz. She ran around picking up stage and speakers, driving a truck, making deliveries, assembling the set, moving heavy gear, sorting out food and doing all the little essential things on the set that someone needs to do or we'd never get it done. More importantly though, she's put up with me being a neurotic and anxious freak in the days leading up to each time we'd shoot. This project wouldn't exist without her and I can't thank her enough.

Next comes the editing and an entirely new set of challenges. But the challenge of coordinating and logistics has passed and I think we're in good hands with Darrin on our team to put our little reel together.

Here are some pix from my camera. I'll post some stills soon and we had someone taking more professional looking behind the scenes shots on the last day that will look great as well.
