For obvious reasons, Steven didn't have much time to keep up with his video diaries while we were on set. But we did manage to get this one in, where he walks you through how to make a "simple" shot that's way more complicated than it looks.
Right on the heels of last week's article in the Austin Chronicle, online movie blog The Popcorn Muncher published this interview with Steven, in which our fear-inducing director discusses his thoughts on the difference between a good found footage movie and a bad one, and what sets FF3D apart.
Today, the Austin Chronicle (Austin's #1 entertainment and culture weekly) published an article about FF3D -- our first to appear in print (though definitely not the last).
Richard Whittaker (the article's author) has been a fan of ours ever since we screened our Proof of Concept at the Alamo Drafthouse last September. So when we reached out to him and asked if he'd join us on set during the final week of filming, he jumped at the chance. He visited on Stunt Day -- when most of our characters reach their untimely demise -- and he had a great time, which is pretty obvious from the article. Give it a read.
And maybe turn off the lights and light a candle first to get yourself into the mood.
The last week of filming was filled with more blood and gore than the first two weeks combined. There were stunts, plot twists, and all kinds of other excitement, so of course, we've compiled a few of the best moments for you to see.
Did you know Found Footage 3D wasn't originally planned to be filmed in 3D? Or that our use of camcorders offers a number of tremendous advantages in how you'll enjoy the movie, visually?
Fresh off production, John Squires published an interview with Steven last night on Halloween Love Blog. Find out everything you didn't know and everything you need to know about our film.
On May 25, 2014, we began rolling cameras on the world's first 3D found footage horror film. Two days later, six actors and twenty-seven crew members descended on a ranch 10 miles outside of Gonzales, Texas, and completely took it over for the next three weeks. We braved snakes, spiders, wasps, and billions of mosquitoes to make a film that we hope (and the footage seems to suggest) will go down in history.
Our final day of shooting began during a full moon on Friday the 13th and ended at 6:50 the following morning, when we finally shot our last frame:
Now begins the long process of post production. We have 600 Gb of raw picture footage to review, over a dozen visual effects shots to render, and the all important sound to design, so that this time next year you'll all be able to watch this in theaters and be as excited to see it as we've been making it.
We'll continue to post videos and photos, so keep coming back for all the latest news and content.
