The movie is cast, the locations have been found, the production team has been assembled. 90% there and the 10% anyone can do. We have reached critical mass. The Real Deal has snatched props at bargain basement prices from a liquidating Warner Brothers prop warehouse. Donny Paradise is glossing the script. The actors are bonding and working together. The good folks at Micro hits are spotting, Danger is penning tunes. Boltron got some hair!

Doing a feature on a budget of air ain’t no easy task and certainly ain’t for everyone. You gotta be crazy, REALLY crazy, and REALLY love what you do. As we move forward with this it’s become clear just how much ya need the flat out flexible bro down type. Personalities have become just as important as talent, luckily folks with great personalities are usually pretty talented. You need people willing to go with the flow, especially when there’s not that ‘origination’ professionals types are so used to. You need troopers willing to have an inconvenient day or two or twenty just to get it done. A bunch of weird-ish artistic types as opposed to the full time ‘real’ jober, trying to make a project somehow fit into their already slammed schedule. Stone cold pros who understand this is not some ‘tent pole’ production, but just a bunch of people pooling their talent to make something cool, non-traditional thinkers who flat out love making movies. GETTING THEM MADE!

And we got our little selves one of the best Rob ‘THE REAL DEAL’, who’s been on fire scouting locations, collecting props, and coming up with scheduling ideas for making a movie on a budget of air. Today he found a slam dunk for the mother of all locations, and there he stands in the pic. We HAIL you Real Deal, for all your attention to detail, great taste and eye, but mostly for all that passion for making any project no matter how big or how small be the best it can be
