Its Been A While…

July 20, 2009

Dear Brotherhood Viewers,

Sorry it has been a while since our last update.  Production on “Johnny’s Leaving” did go quite smoothly, but post-production has taken some time.  Since wrapping in early May, Owen Rucker (our Post-Production supervisor and editor) had to leave the project due to time constraints.  Paul Battaglini (Producer and co-owner) has been living in San Francisco to work on a television show for Animal Planet, “Weird, True & Freaky.”

But just because of slight setbacks, doesn’t mean we have stopped working.  Kali has now taken over the editing process; cutting the film he so wonderfully directed.  Jon Flores (on-set sound) is going to handle the sound mixing as well.

Paul is working exceptionally hard on “Weird, True & Freaky,” and might be forced to relocate from the New York area to the San Francisco Bay Area.  Because the “Brotherhood” bond will never be broken, instead of abandoning the company, Brotherhood Productions has been planning for possible expansion.

Richard is currently handling all business on the east coast while Paul is away.  But before Paul left in mid-June, Brotherhood Productions had found its next two projects: “Single Number” and “Saturday Detention.”

“Single Number” follows Samuel Malloy, a lonely IT customer service operator whose parents have recently died.  All alone from family and love, Samuel is mysteriously greeted by Grabriella, a pseudo-paranormal figure that hopes to help him find love in his life.  “Single Number” is written by Brotherhood Productions co-owner Paul Battaglini and being produced by Richard Wyche.

Richard Wyche has also written “Saturday Detention,” which will be produced alongside “Single Number.”  “Saturday Detention” follows high school student Brandon, who finds himself amongst eternal boredom in the epitome of school punishment.  Throughout serving his detention, Brandon realizes his character defects and faults through his peer Griff, who is there for eerily similar circumstances.

Both films are in pre-production and to be released at the same time.  Release dates are TBA.  If you have any questions, comments or to inquire more information, feel free to e-mail Brotherhood Productions at info@brotherhoodproductions.tv.  Thank you and we hope you come back!

B&W Production Stills

June 5, 2009

Here are just some black and white production stills.  Just got them back from the lab, some are pretty interesting, hope you enjoy.

Cast Is Here!

May 2, 2009

Day 2 – 11:25 a.m.

Our primary cast has just arrived on time!  Brent (Asst. Dir.) has been running through lines for 20 minutes.  Shooting is still on schedule for 12:00 p.m.  Photos of the cast in full wardrobe will be up soon!  Kali, Teri, Jon, and Leighton are completing the last details on the bedroom which looks fantastic already!  Teri has done an excellent job as Art Director!

Owen is transferring all of our footage from last night.  Even without an assistant, Leighton has been on point.  Our crew is the perfect example of diligence, hard work, and unity.

Our philosophy of the day is brought to us by filmmaker David Lynch who wrote, “I’d like to say: I deeply love film; I love catching the ideas; and I love to meditate.  I love enlivening unity.  And I think the enlivening of unity brings a better and better life.”  Perfect for our crew!  Even though we are on only 3 hours of sleep, we continue to strive on!  Still have a long day ahead of us, check back for more!

Day 2 – Way Too Early

May 2, 2009

Day 2 – 7:50 a.m.

We ended really late last night just to wake up today at 5 am.  Brent had some car trouble but it didn’t send us behind much at all.  All of us are on an average of 3 hours of sleep but its nothing Dunkin’ Donuts coffee can’t solve.   Leighton and Kali are planning out the shots for today right now.  Cast call is currently 11 a.m. but our supporting actor is coming all the way from Maryland.  We sure hope he’s on time.

Here are some of the remaining photos from the shoot last night.

Day One Update

May 1, 2009

Day 1 – 6:31 p.m.

Rich and I have just completed some number crunching on today’s budget.  Based on what we paid for, large expenses and planned expenses, our film is WAY under budget!  This gives us more freedom to send out our film to festivals around the globe and more exposure for Brotherhood Productions and the crew.

On the production side, we are running some test shots with the new camera, lens adapter and crane.  Right now we are waiting for the sun to set so we can really get the ball rolling on principal photography!

Some photos of the crew are attached below courtesy Teri Jacobs!

P.S. – Brotherhood Productions has an AIM account that Richard and I monitor.  Feel free to IM us at bhoodproductions for a live update!
