My Second Toe Is Longer Than Yours

"Live Evil" Update and Congrats to "Unearthed"  

There are still a million things going on right now with the production. I want to write a full report of our shoot next week. I know I keep saying that, but when I write about our production, I want the site to be available as well. Transferring domain names is hell and has taken way too long, so that is why there is a delay. Let's just say things are moving along great with our film right now. We had an awesome Telecine colorist last Friday and the footage looked really good. Damn, it's expensive to transfer to Digi-Beta per hour. Maybe one day if I am lucky and have the money I can transfer to HD. You know what--screw that, if I had the money I would just make a print. OK, enough of the rant, more on Live Evil next week.

I wanted to say Congratulations to Craig Kovack and everyone who worked on "Unearthed." I know you guys are having your premiere at the end of the month in Ybor. Good luck with that and I hope someone picks up the movie and does wonderful things with it. I know you guys worked hard on the movie.

You know, Craig, there are a lot of haters in the area. What you did is truly commendable and I am happy for you. People who have done it can honestly say that. Haters usually just judge with out knowning. It's not easy to make a feature-length film. It's awesome that you had the balls to go out and do it the way you did. What was the saying in Ed Wood's movie? "Don't spend your life making other people's movies." That's something I think about everyday. I basically live in a world out here where people are going to "work" everyday in the business and just working. They don't give a shit if the movie is good or not. I honestly think that's how TV shows and sit-coms were invented. There is no difference between a lot of the people here and, say, someone working a customer service job. Once the week is over both want their check and don't give a shit less if the place would blow up over the weekend.

I think that's one of the reasons I have stayed so fond of the Tampa area. Regardless of my own bitching of what may be wrong with Tampa, people work on movies there truly because they love movies. Good job once again, guys.

Speaking of doing something solely out of the love of it, well, I will have the update and photos that I have been promising next week.
