We are nearly there, folks. Principal Photography begins in only a week. That’s but 7 earth days, ya’ll. The production team here at Released Pictures International Global National Headquarters is definitely in crunch mode. There are sets to dress, rehearsals to finalize, crew positions to lock down, meetings a plenty to be had, and about 749 tons of paperwork to be buried beneath. But we’re not complaining (much) because WE ARE MAKING A MOVIE!
And once production begins, stay tuned right here for all the latest updates. Yours Truly will be blogging on location throughout the shoot. And we are preparing to up the video content we put out starting with this very post.
Also, if you want to take a moment to check out all the amazing people that are making this project come alive, keep tabs on our CREW and ABOUT pages, as they have been updated, and will continue to be updated, with crew on the crew page (obviously) and an ongoing and sure to be endless SPECIAL THANKS section on the about page.
Now that I surely have you chomping at the bit with THE NOTHING FEVER, here’s a prescription to cool your brow: Two clips from our cast table read. The first is from an early scene shortly after the characters are first confronted with what’s outside those barn doors. The second features Lane and Bud, and gives you a glimpse into the dynamics of their, shall we say, strained relationship.
Josh’s college buddy Aaron wrote a very flattering (and nicely promotional) piece on our project and his thoughts on the script over on his blog “Rollin’ with Dice” that you can check out here. You should also check out and “follow” the blog in general, because it’s pretty cool, and has lots of LOST talk, which I’m all about.
Additionally, our own Jeff Boyet has taken it upon himself to transform his family vacation to Florida in to a bit of a viral marketing blitz. You can view the photographic evidence here.
And here is a little peek behind the curtain: at our final rehearsal before we are actually on set, I left my digital camera sitting on some jazzercise equipment. Luckily, the great people at the facility we rehearsed at picked it up for me, but not before I had to write an email that said, “Uh, yeah, I think I left a green KODAK digital camera in the gym on some jazzercise equipment.” This was in no way embarrassing.
Speaking of cameras, there may be something very unorthodox about the camera we use to shoot this feature, but more on that later. Unless it doesn’t work out, in which case, please delete that sentence from your personal memory banks. Thank you.
Hey everybody, we have a couple of new updates for you today.
First of all, the Producers of THE NOTHING are thrilled to announce the addition of Kenda Benward to our cast! Kenda is an amazing actress, and she will be bringing her unique talents to the role of Denise. You can check out her bio on our cast page, which you can find by clicking the link at the top of this site.
Also, I’ve just added some candid stills I took at a recent rehearsal, and those can be found right here.
We’ve also been busy shooting some interview footage with the cast and producers where we have gotten their insights into the script, the rehearsal process, and each other. We’ll have that up very soon.
Our shoot date is getting very near, and things are heating up. Keep checking here and on our facebook page for all the latest updates.
