January 2012 Update & Lessons Learned

January 10, 2012

Working in film and media has definitely taught Rich and myself a lot of patience and humility.  The forever battle between idea inception, raising money, budgeting, casting, “crewing,” shooting, editing, distributing and marketing every single project we have produced teaches a new lesson.  We have made many mistakes; some of which are tiresome, while others have proven to be beneficial.  Our most recent mistake has definitely been “cooling off,” taking too much time.  It has been far too long since we have updated people on our business and projects.  Richard and I apologize.

Since the premiere of “Single Number,” which has been given praise by its audiences, Richard and I have been trying to conceive a new project while digging for financial aid to send “Single Number” to film festivals around the globe.  More recently, we are waiting to hear back about our submission from the Chicago Underground Film Festival and the 21st Annual Arizona International Film Festival.  We have also designed a cover and DVD template for the “Single Number” DVD’s which will be printed within two months.  The final printed DVD’s will be available for sale as well.  For fun, the “Single Number” IMDB page is up for your viewing pleasure here.

In two weeks we start production on our next project.  A documentary project that is six thousand, two hundred, eighty eight feet tall.  Literally.  Titled “6288,” the film focuses on one of the biggest small mountains on Earth: Mount Washington.  The film will follow myself as a novice winter mountaineer, trying to summit Mount Washington, which is regarded to have to worst weather on the planet.  With the factors against my own and fellow mountaineer Jacob Seigler (who is also a member of the BroPro team), our attempt to summit this hill will be well documented at the end of January.  Subjective topics in the film will also feature archive footage of the White Mountain region, an introspective look into winter mountaineering, and why people have trouble summiting such a small mountain in America.

Although no screening dates are scheduled, do check out the “6288” page to view the trailer and any updates to come.

And of course, stay tuned!

Post-Production Update

September 14, 2009

I am very pleased to announce we are very close to picture lock!  Saw Kali’s new edit of “Johnny’s Leaving,” and it looks more than incredible!  Rich, the crew and myself were astonished with the new cut.  Kali is truly a talented Director and Editor!

Also would like to announce (if I haven’t already) that the Seigler Brothers will be scoring the film.  Jonathan Seigler (the older brother of the two) is a very talented pianist and has graduated from University of Pennsylvania in 2008.  His younger brother Jacob is also a budding musician and record producer, primarily for his work with the music group “Ipazzi.”  Having the brothers collaborate is definitely going to produce a wonderful score.  Did I mention they are also from South Orange?

Keep your eyes open for drafts of the poster and dvd cover designed by Chris Campbell.  A new Brotherhood Productions website is also in the works so stay tuned!
