We’ve had a tremendous response to our first official preview of our motion picture Jeff’s World. A common response we received from people with experience in the movie making biz is that we are on the verge of hitting a home run. With a few simple tweaks to the movie we’ve got something with the potential to really go far. Because of this we were faced with a decision. We could either continue on as we were and finish the movie and have something that’s pretty okay. Being that we’ve been making this movie on a micro budget with three people doing the work of three or four people each, it is absolutely amazing we’ve been able to maintain the level of quality that we have. Pretty okay would be an acceptable outcome. Or we can regroup and shoot this thing with a bigger budget that would allow us to have a full crew and the resources we need to hit that homerun. Being that it is very rare that movie makers have a screenplay in hand with so much potential we decided it would be foolish to squander this opportunity. We’re going to go for the home run!
So what we’re doing right now is regrouping and working on finding investors so we can raise at least $100,000 to make this movie with a full crew. Our goal is to secure the money so we can shoot the entire film over one month next spring, 2013. It would be completed by fall 2013. This also buys us the time to really plan this project out so that when we go to shoot, it is done with absolute excellence. The thing about the process of making a movie is that it is similar to an iceberg. They say the iceberg you see above the water actually only about 30% of it. The majority of the iceberg is underwater, out of sight. The same is true with a good movie. The majority of work takes place during preproduction, before the actors ever stand in front of the camera. This is the phase we are in now. We’ll continue to keep you posted on our progress. Thanks for your support!
