It is Summer

Wow summer time is always so busy. I mean we think we have tons and tons of time and plan out all these projects, but someone everything seems like it is on fast forward. Right now some of what we are tackling are as follows.

– Working on scripts for a new series “Lost in the Woods”

– Still and forever working on our website.

– Weddings and more weddings

– Another Interrogators short

– Polly (three shots left to call it a wrap)

– Capturing old VHS footage from a long long time ago.

Speaking a little more to that last point, I have really enjoyed going though some old footage that has sat in my “vault” for years and years. A lot of it is just personal family footage that is priceless to me, but there are also James and my early films such as Star Voyage, Gigante and Huset Special Editions and even behind the scenes footage from my very very first trial and failure at making a movie back in 1994.  I am not sure which of this stuff is every going to see the web, but I probably wouldn’t be too opposed to seeing some of it made viewable. Ok I guess my break is over, back to making our main website.

Updates on Polly

Giant House Productions new “big” film Polly (the sequel to the 2005 Molly) is entering is last few scenes. We will be shooting the final scene where we need a sizable cast. From here it should be down hill hopefully as we shoot scenes that have no more that two principle actors in it. The scene that will be filmed this coming weekend will be one of the final climatic scene. My big hope in this is that we are able to take the time we need to focus on the acting and cinematography and get it right. I always hate rushing but since this is the climax of our film and one of the big moments for both our lead characters it is important we get it right. Looking forward to getting to work and making some magic.

Saga of redoing a website

This gallery contains 1 photo.

So James Gigante and myself have been working to re-invent our website. Web has never been my first passion, but as it is a necessary tool to showcase our videos I have endeavored to make friends with it best I can. This site will be our blog where everything new to Giant House Productions can be shared. Currently however I am putting time into the “main” page that will house our video and other art projects that we partake in. So come back and see what we have in store.

New Gear

Latest update is we got a boat load of new equipment and I am learning some audio techniques for our new projects. More to come.

Pan/Tilt head

We recently purchased our first Pan/Tilt head to attach to our Crane. We felt that it was one of the only core pieces of equipment we were lacking, and we look forward to getting some awesome shots with it!

Polly!

We are working on Polly this spring and summer to premiere at the 9th Semi-Annual Giant House Film Festival  in Fall 2012.
