Coming Soon from Brotherhood Productions!

October 9, 2009

We just put up a brand new “preview website” of Brotherhood Productions!  Check it out  at http://www.brotherhoodproductions.tv   As of right now, it contains contact information, producer bio’s, future production info, and a link to our blog.  Most importantly, it has the new trailer for “Johnny’s Leaving,” which was cut by Kristen Williamson!  The full version of our website will premiere on Thanksgiving, containing past projects, cast and crew interviews, future project news, and access to project websites.

I also met recently with Kali and Owen Rucker (fellow producer and DIT on “Johnny’s Leaving) about a script they had recently finished titled “Tag Team.”  Their script follows two young adults finding each other through their friends, underground hip-hop and very obscure sexual behavior.  Kali and Owen take the directorial chair with production starting at the end of 2009.

A schedule has also been established for “Single Number” as well.  The film is currently in pre-production and production will begin in mid-April.  Stay tuned!  Two more events are being planned within the next 4 months!

Crunch Time

May 3, 2009

Day 3 -7:50 p.m.
We are trying to wrap by 9 as planned. Naim has been giving us his best all weekend long, the least we can do is get him out at a reasonable hour.
Everything has been going well and the crew is working hard but the crew has been working double time to wrap by nine. We hope we do!
This will be the last posting before we wrap. I’ll post another when we do.

Day 2 – Lunch Update

May 2, 2009

Day 2 – 5:15 p.m.

Ok lunch break has given me the time to keep everyone posted!  We had really fallen behind schedule around 1:00 p.m.  Kali is extremely detail oriented and wants to make sure his film is perfect.  We are more than sure this film will be perfect but the entire crew (including myself) had lost track of time completely!

Brent being a great Assistant Director had gotten the crew back on track!  Owen and I have been overlooking some of the footage so far and even with a barebones equipment list, Leighton is still able to pull off professional quality images.

Lunch is about to end and everyone needs to get back to work!  Surprisingly, people haven’t fallen asleep while working since the average sleep time for the crew has been about 3 hours.  Check back again!

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.

Great Planning/Busy Is Good

May 1, 2009

Day 1 – 3:13 p.m.

We fell a little behind schedule with Leighton and I picking up our equipment.  Traffic in New York City is awful.  Thank god we we gave ourselves a lot of extra time for prep.  While we were out, the remaining crew set up the room for tomorrow.

Even with the extra time the crew has been staying busy, covering every single aspect of today and tomorrow.  Owen and I have been doing scheduling and logistical work, making sure every mistake can be repaired.

Derek McAlister came in to rehearse for Sunday’s shoot.  Kali says “He’s just an amazing actor.”  Kudos to Brent for pointing us to backstage.com.

Everything is still on schedule, I’ll keep you posted!

Paul!

Happy Johnny Day! We have been working on “Johnny’s Leaving” all day long. Kali and Teri have been working vigorously on Art Direction while Leighton and I are nearly done building our tracking dolly.
Right now, I am writing this from our shooting location. Kali, Leighton, and Teri are scouting out the rooms of the home so set up on our first day of production is flawless.
We labeled today “Johnny Day” because we planned our entire day around pre-production. Quite clever from T.Jacobs! Here are the photos of the crew working and some shots of our shooting location. Enjoy!
