Season 3 of Indy Christian Review has begun! New episodes will air online every Wednesday! Watch episodes on the Ichthus Network!
Well, after five months of on-and-off editing, it’s finally done! I give you… Gaffer Man!
I’ve just finished two short film trailers. The first is a new “dramatic” trailer for Ragged Edge. This trailer only has footage from the film (all color-corrected and without interviews!), and features part of Amity Sampley’s amazing score! You can watch the trailer on YouTube, Vimeo, or IMDb (or just right here!)
The second trailer is for John’s Miracle, the short film we produced at the 2010 Rocky Mountain Christian Filmmakers Camp. I had the privilege of playing the part of the titular character, John Emerson, as well as editing the film.
I’ll be honest, while the quality’s not as good as Ragged Edge (and I’m allowed to say that because I worked on it. :-P), it still came out pretty good! The film is finally done, pending one final review of the sound mix, and I can’t wait to show it to the 2011 Rocky Mountain Filmmakers Camp this June (if you missed registering for the June camp, we’re having another camp this August! Check out the Camp website for registration details).
In other news, Indy Christian Review is doing well. We’ve topped 100 views on episode 1, and the Facebook and Twitter pages are gaining followers slow but sure. I’m going to see if I can get 100 likes and followers on each by the end of June, before I head off for the set of Indescribable.
Yep, that’s right. I’ll be heading down to Bryan, TX yet again to work with the folks at Morning Star Productions! This time I won’t be acting, and it won’t be a short film! Indescribable is a feature-length film, and I’ll be the gaffer! For those of you that don’t know, that means I’ll be in charge of the lighting (it’s sometimes called “chief lighting technician”, but very rarely). I’ll be down there for five weeks this time instead of one. I’m sure I’ll be plenty busy, plus my laptop died, so I won’t be able to do daily vlogs like last time. If you enter their video contest, however, you’ll get access to behind the scenes videos during the shoot.
Well that’s all for now. Until next time.
You may remember in January when I announced the launch of IndyChristianReview.com, a website I created to review and promote independently-produced Christian films. It’s been going pretty well, with 15 films having been reviewed, and a decent amount of traffic on a regular basis.
Well, after a two-month hiatus (due to Baby Zana’s arrival), I’m back to posting more reviews. But most exciting is the start, as of today, of the Indy Christian Review web video series! Every Thursday I’ll be releasing a new video on Blip.tv featuring a review of a Christian film. The first season will consist of 13 episodes, running from May 12 to August 4. As the series goes on, I’m hoping to expand it to include interviews with Christian filmmakers and some “on location” trips to movie sets and film festivals. You can watch the show at http://Indy-Christian-Review.blip.tv
If you’re a Christian filmmaker and would like to submit your film to be reviewed on Indy Christian Review, shoot me an email at submissionATindychristianreviewDOTcom. And if you would like to sponsor an episode (or two, or five!), email me at contactATindychristianreviewDOTcom, and I’d be happy to discuss details with you!
And of course, the best help you can give is to spread the word about the show! Like it on Facebook, follow it on Twitter, watch the episodes, leave feedback, and tell your friends, family, rivals and enemies about the new Indy Christian Review show!
May God bless you, and may God bless independent Christian films!
Well, I hope you all had a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day! Here’s the rest of the videos I posted at YouTube.com/ZackLawrenceShow
