Director's Blog: Thoughts on the Rough Cut Screening Part 2

Some more thoughts on the reactions to the rough cut that we showed people a few weeks ago:

When producer Charles Mulford and I were discussing a much earlier draft of the script a few years ago, he expressed a little concern that it might not be scary enough. I asked him to trust me, because I knew that if we executed the movie properly, there were moments in the script that were going to play much scarier than they read on the page. That’s true for any horror script, honestly, but it’s especially true, I think, for found footage.

Which Video Makes the Best Teaser?

UPDATE: Sorry - the poll's already closed, so we've taken the videos down, too. Sign up on our email list to get a first look when the winner goes out to the public.

Next month we'll be launching an Indiegogo campaign, so we'll be publicly releasing the first clips of Found Footage 3D. But we want your help to figure out which of these three clips makes the best teaser for the film.

Director's Blog: Thoughts on the Rough Cut Screening Part 1

Last Wednesday night was our first screening of the movie for people who aren’t cast or crew. Someone asked me beforehand if I was nervous, and weirdly, I wasn’t. felt pretty confident in what we have right now and where the movie is at, and I was looking forward to hearing what people had to say about what was and wasn’t working at this stage in the editing process. This is the first of what I hope will be several blogs about what I took away from the screening.

My wife pointed out to me earlier this evening that there is a difference between being scared and being horrified. A lot of people enjoy being scared. You will be, if you watch FF3D. But I can’t promise that you won’t also be horrified a few times as well. Consider this a warning.

Behind-the-Scenes: Actors Watch 3D Footage for the First Time

Normally it's a bit taboo to show actors footage of themselves during production, but these guys insisted. You'll be glad they did, because their reactions are priceless (and 100% genuine). This is the first time they've ever seen any of the footage in 3D.  If you have a 3D capable set up, watch our 3D version for an even better viewing experience.

Producer Screening

Last night, the producers and a few guests gathered at director Steven DeGennaro's house to watch the first rough cut of Found Footage 3D

3D Glasses

This cut doesn't have any visual or sound effects, and it's about 20-30 minutes too long. Periodically throughout, a white box would show up on screen along with text like "The Spectre appears over here." (Ooh, creepy.)

Even so, everyone loved it. Even those who haven't read the script and knew nothing about FF3D had great things to say.

Producer Kim Henkel, who has watched hundreds of rough cuts in his career, said, "I've been to a lot of these that are very discouraging. This one, I would say, is quite the opposite." (Kim, by the way, doesn't give compliments lightly. This is very high praise coming from him.)

We still have a long way to go, but we are making great progress and are feeling really good. Can't wait to show it to you guys!
