So after nearly three years of development, lots of heart attacks (figuratively), major growing pains, people coming and going, head-banging and all sorts of general mayhem Bombshell Studios announced last Friday, 10/25/2013, the beginning of our first feature film. It’s… Read More »The Launch of The Endless Whispers
FACES is in it’s final post-production throes. Simply put she is all finished but for the score and that is currently being brought to exquisite life by Thomas Gamble (Elimination and No-Good Maxine.) This means a number of things. First… Read More »Launching FACES with Less Than a Thousand Ships
Speed dating. Fun, fast and full of wild characters and uncomfortable moments.
A late night invite to a speed dating event. Is this something the guys should really get themselves in to?
There’s a lot that’s been going on of late. It’s a bit crazy and the progress works like a robot who has an unadjusted catalytic converter. One day FACES takes a giant step forward and then is lulled into torpor. Another day, Project Whiskey takes a massive leap and then it flutters to a dream. Commercials, work-for-hire and other tidbits and nibbles jockey for a little attention, get it, and then promptly run off with the pool boy.
“Was this the face that launched a thousand ships and burnt the topless towers of Ilium?”
An unnamed women who might be the inspiration behind the two famous lines from playwright Christopher Marlowe’s play “The Tragedy of Dr. Faustus” is the central figure in this film. There are hints of the presence of Helen of Troy. Her beauty, her sensuality, her very presence sparked one of the most famous and terrifying wars in history, moving two gigantic powerhouse civilizations, the Greeks and the Trojans, into war…for ten years; nearly decimating their countries.
And behind it all stirs the hand of something . . . epic. When creativity is sparked a cry goes out to One of the Nine.
“Faces” is a short experimental film directed by Michael Babbitt and starring Clark Sarullo (“Necessary Roughness”, “Drop Dead Diva”).
So FACES continues to progress. Near the end of the rough cut it became more apparent that there was an element, while inherent and suggested in the story, hadn’t been filmed and needed to be. So while the rest of the cut is solidified and the composer and I get down to work for the soundtrack, over the next month or so I’ll be doing a few extra days of shooting. Very simple little vignettes that will take only a few hours each day to tackle. But these will really polish the essence of Helen’s heart and the demons she must face.
On the set for FACES with Rebecca, Joanne and Spencer from the Nickel Shakespeare Girls!
Just a quick (as in super quick) update. Our short film, tentatively still entitled “Faces” is midway through its rough cut. The footage is lovely and quite magical. Here’s a brief look at a still from the film. Our actress,… Read More »“…that launched a thousand ships…”
