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.
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!
