Happy -- no make that ecstatic -- that all our long days of major pick-ups for In-World War are done at last!
Thank you to the hundreds of people who helped make this milestone possible, starting with production 18+ months ago, through all the 2nd unit world across the world along the way and ending with some kick-ass footage in Oakland at the end of January.
What's next? Editing. We need to get a rough cut done, fit in some music, do some minor pick-ups (inserts mostly -- no real scenework is needed at this point thankfully). More about the editing later. Suffice to say, it's another major milestone ahead.
But once in a while it's important to just enjoy the view from the top of the latest hill.
We couldn't have gotten here without the support and love from so many friends, family, cast and crew. You're all part of the In-World War family. Thank you, deeply and sincerely.
Here are some behind-the-scenes photos from our shoot in New York City and our last day of major pick-ups in Oakland. Thanks to the amazing people at the Oakland Int'l Airport and the Oakland Film Office, we were able to shoot inside an actual 727 cargo plane -- check out the pic below.
P.S. If you're an indie filmmaker you may be interested in the six-part series on indie film distribution and marketing that I wrote up after Sundance this year. It's on my DIY Filmmaking Sucks blog. The first article appears this week and a new one is published every Monday for five more weeks. Check it out.
