Dear Agony 2012

Dear Agony Gag Reel and Behind the scenes photos.

Now that Dear Agony has been up for a while – I’m posting the Gag reel that I produced as well.

The Gag Reel has spoilers so if you haven’t seen the movie yet – go see it here first – then come back.

Okay – you’ve been warned!

We (or rather I) had so much fun making this movie. Throughout the process, I was lucky to have numerous people help me document the process. The incredible part was that we used only one camera to film the entire short film. We didn’t use any external lights either.

I have to thank everyone in front and behind the camera. Angel, Fernando, Jim, Mike, Joel, Dan, Jody, Linnette and Elizabeth. Even my kids helped. We all pulled together, pushed through the obstacles and got this movie done.

The gallery below is just a small sampling of the photos captured by me and my friends during the various stages of the production process. They were shot in color but I converted them to BW – which I really like.

Click on the images to enlarge them.

Later I will post the head gear rig my buddy Jim and I DIY’d for mounting the GoPro so my actor could wear it.

I had posted some stills from the camera but only for the cast and crew – now that the movie and BTS is up  – you can see those stills from the POV camera here as well.

by on Oct.21, 2012, under Creativity, Dear Agony 2012, Film making

We had a successful premiere last night for the Cast and Crew and this morning for the family of my short film, “Dear Agony.”

As promised, I have uploaded it to two different video sharing sites.

Youtube and Vimeo. The uploads are the same – I just wanted to give people options.

I’ll be posting a Behind the Scenes page later but for now – please take a look and comment.

Dear Agony to premiere soon

by on Oct.13, 2012, under Creativity, Dear Agony 2012, Film making, Movies

I had some “creative juices” flowing so I decided to work on my Photoshop skills.

I’m on vacation this week but will be back to premiere my movie short on Saturday Sept 20, 2012 to the crew and cast.

Got a wild hair since I shouldn’t work on my short film anymore…:-(

You know how it goes, you keep messing with your project and before you know it, it’s something that it’s not. So my buddy Jim told me to “push away from the computer” and don’t mess with it even though I’m a week early on completing it. As the famous Alfred Hitchcock would say, “A movie is never finished, just abandoned.”

So, since I can’t work on it anymore, I had all of these pent up creative juices in me so I decided to come up with some sort of announcement that I would be premiering the short film next weekend and then posting it online.

I thought the greatest  venue would be to see my short film on a movie marquee.
So I scoured the internet looking for some empty movie marquee movie signs. I found a couple but this one I liked the best. About two hours later in in Photoshop I came up with something. I used some other blank marquee backgrounds to replace the original text (Photoshop’s content aware was not up to the task) and I even added some “dirt” too. I then “painted over” the original neon signage and created my own.
Above is what I came up with and below is the original image.
Once I premiere my short film – I’ll repost this image on my blog and replace “SPECIAL SHOWING” with “ONLINE.”
I’m happy with the final product. Thanks for letting me share.
