Well, the shoot went great and we have some AMAZING footage! Now we’re in post-production and the cutting began yesterday. Very exciting. I feel like a kid in a candy store. Or an abattoir. Anyway, who deserves a first look at the footage more that the incredible cast and crew who worked without pay because they believed in the project, our awesome subscribers, and the incredibly generous donors who helped us make it happen!
Yes, we went over budget (as I predicted) by over $3000, and we’re not done with editing, sound design and marketing. I’m not sure if we’ll try another Kickstarter, but if anyone feels like making additional donations or has connections to producers who may be interested in developing the project for TV or film, please write me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
So this first preview clip shows the character William, the very disturbed and disturbing narrator of The Book of Paul with a creepy teaser about The Book. Matthew Dalton Lynch plays William and he gave everyone on set the shivers. We shot three takes at varying distances, wide medium and close, and he NAILED every one! In the final we will intercut between the takes and add footage from the scenes, but I wanted to post one of his takes in its entirety just to show what a fantastic job Matthew did.
Here it is! Enjoy!
And for some more great news: The Book of Paul hit #1 in Horror on Amazon and Barnes & Noble and went all the way up to #33 in the Amazon Top 100 list of ALL books! We’re hoping we’ll make the USA Top 150 list for this week so we’ve kept the price LOW at $.99 through Sunday. Let’s make the world a happier darker place with more Paul fangirls and boys and share the links and love!
