This is a passion project with a group of local filmmakers, combining the talents of local magicians and poets into a series of short film vignettes exploring storytelling and the artistic process.
There's 4 of us in charge of the project- Roberto Hernandez, our Creative Director and Cinematographer (the friend who invited me on to the project); Joshua Bachmann, our Creative Director and Writer; Ian Reents, our Concept Designer, Talent Manager, and Magician; and of course myself, Jeffrey Hepburn, our Visual Effects Creative Director, Cinematographer, Photographer, and Editor.
We meet in person every Thursday at a local Starbucks to discuss how the last week went, what our progress is, and where we plan to be going. We're in the process of figuring out funding for the project, and starting to storyboard our first films in the series.
We've been doing talent scouting and interviews for the last several months, and we have our talent mostly lined up for a first series of shooting. We're finalising scripts and figuring out production now.
