Well howdy there everybody!
I hope spring is treating you well. It's been a pretty busy season for me thus far!
I just got done working on Blue Seraph Productions' new film
The Dark Place; the cast and
crew on this project were absolutely wonderful, and from what I saw in the monitors this film is going to be
quite a thriller! Be sure to follow The Dark Place on Facebook
and Twitter to keep tabs on the movie as it goes through post-production and gets
closer to its release date.
Next up for me is the sequel to The Falls,
We need your help to make The Falls II a reality!
There are just three days to go on the film's Kickstarter
campaign, and we're far below the $10,000.00 needed to fund production
on this new feature. The cast and crew are set and we're ready to
roll the cameras later this month - but it's going to be difficult to
bring this continuation of RJ Smith and Chris Merrill's story to the screen
if we don't get the funding we need.
Now, I know, I know... everyone from Zach Braff
to your cousin Bertha is asking you to fund their Kickstarter project these days - and money's tight for all of us! I can't
tell you that The Falls II is more worthy than any other "crowdfunded" project on Kickstarter... what I can tell you,
though, is the first Falls has touched a lot of people around the world.
We've heard from hundreds of viewers thanking director Jon Garcia for telling a story they've lived,
but few people ever hear. We want to keep telling that story... and we need some
help to do it. If you've got a few extra bucks to throw our way, please head over to
The Falls II's Kickstarter page and
contribute. We'd really appreciate it!
Ok... enough of that. Lets talk about where you can see me in the next couple weeks -
Ok, just one last thing before I let you get back to your day in peace...
If you follow my personal Facebook page or my
Twitter feed, you know that I joined over 400 Oregon film and TV
workers at the state capitol in Salem a couple weeks ago to lobby for House Bill 2267,
which seeks to double Oregon's film incentives and bring more productions like
Leverage and Portlandia-
and the jobs that come with them - to the state. We got a lot of attention from the legislature
and the press on "Industry Day," and the bill received a very favorable
hearing before the legislature's Joint Tax Credit Committee this past week.
Even so, HB 2267's passage through the legislature is far from guaranteed. The legislature's
Joint Ways and Means Committee hasn't
allocated funds for the bill, and that needs to happen before the bill can leave committee and head to the full House of Representatives
floor for a vote. If you live in Oregon, you can help speed this process along - please
take a moment to write to your state legislators (don't know who your state
legislators are? Don't worry - you can find out here!)
If you don't live in Oregon but know someone who does, please encourage him or her to
write to their legislators - we need every voice we can get in support of this bill so we can keep building our industry and putting
Oregonians to work!
Well, that's it for the moment.
As always, keep and eye on my Twitter feed
and Facebook page to get "up-to-the-minute" updates!
Hope you're all doing well...
