Been awhile since an update, hasn’t it?
This last year has been a whirlwind of trying to run this weird hybrid production company/online studio thing, all while experiencing a lot of things I never expected when I first decided that I liked movies and wanted to become a filmmaker. We raised a small round of investment. We had a board meeting. I learned what a “pro forma cap table” is. We hired people. We fired people. We shot the most ambitious project we’ve ever undertaken.
In short, we’ve been busy doing our best to stay afloat while making the most exciting projects we’ve ever had, all while tackling all the challenges of running a small business. It’s been equal parts terrifying and exhilarating.
Let’s start with the big project we’ve busy with – Dimension 404. It’s coming out in early 2017, (official release date TBD) and is a six-episode sci-fi anthology show, which means every episode is a different story and cast (think Twilight Zone or Black Mirror). One of the benefits of doing an anthology series is that it means you don’t need to commit actors to a month long shoot schedule. Instead, you’re able to pull talent from folks who might not otherwise be available due to TV or feature film commitments.
