Wanted to drop a quick note to those responsible for making this project happen.
Check out the Meet Me By The Lake movie poster mock-up. If anyone is interested in a poster, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for info!
Have we thanked you yet? Thank you, thank you, thank you again for the incredible generosity you’ve showed.
Editing is in full swing! For those interested, here’s a breakdown of how the production process went:
DAY 1: Early morning shooting at Lake Merritt. Bagels and coffee were a plenty at the 6:15am call time. Despite the early morning, the cast and crew worked quickly and effectively—smiling and chugging coffee like it was water on the hottest day of summer without A/C in Tennessee (Ha. Ha. Get it Tennesseans? Like it was hot and we were thirsty. Ha… Ha.)
DAY 2: The biggest day of shooting. Another 6:15am call time and another couple boxes of coffee. We shot for about 9 hours on location—dodging squawks and joggers. (I SAID QUIET ON SET, GEESE!)
DAY 3: Unfortunately, because of scheduling issues, our dear DP Thomas Meaney had to head back down to LA to shoot his own project. So we worked with a smaller team on the final night of shooting. With just Nick, Evangeline, Matthew and myself, we shot all night time interiors and exteriors from around 8pm until 3am—finishing off the night at a 24 hour doughnut shop on Lakeshore (a well deserved doughnut prize for pushing until 3am).
We really can’t thank you guys enough for all of the support. Be on the lookout for an email regarding rewards! For those of you at the $100 donation level, we’ll be needing your address to ship the DVD copies once everything has been completed! Some of you have the VIRTUAL SCREENING access as well. So be on the lookout for an email regarding access!
Lastly, we wanted to make it clear that the editing process takes time. We’re hoping to have a final product ready for screening at the end of June. Can’t wait to share this dream with you guys.
A million thanks times a million thanks times a million thanks… and then more than that.
