iSundae II: The Aftermath

Weep, weep, and mourn. Bawl, sob, sniffle, whatever you prefer, for the Northern branch of Phantom Moose Films leaves on the morrow!

Okay, so we’re not that sad about it, just frantically trying to make sure we filmed everything we need. Bad things can happen when half of your crew leaves and you find out you missed something! Thankfully, this has not been the case so far. (So far. Doesn’t that sound depressing?)

Ruth and Jordan are busy labeling the different video clips (as opposed to libaling) and getting ready to transfer the clips to Jordan’s hard drive, the complete transfer of which will probably take the computer all night. Everyone pray that there are no glitches.

Overall, making iSundae II has been a rip-snorting, knee-slapping, side-splitting, prop-breaking, life-changing blast. Oh, and tick hunting. Filming in the woods has its disadvantages. But setting that aside, we’ve learned a lot about movie-making, decisions, pacing ourselves, and how to haul a collapsing prop back indoors once the sun gets so hot it softens the hot glue.

The only downside that I can see to the whole project is that now I have to figure out what to do with the props and costumes, since we won’t need them next year. Oh well. Another problem for another day.

And, in case you’re wondering, there are more posts coming up. Sure, the main part of the action is done, but there’s still editing, scoring, animating, and a couple things Jordan will be filming at his house, so stay tuned. Remember, good things come to those who wait! (Unless you’re referring to leftovers.)

Plus, there has been some talk about posting a crazy freeze-frame of the week every week until the editing’s done. Current estimates are saying the movie won’t be completed until late fall/early winter.

Well, this is your friendly blabber, signing off.

  1. Okay everyone – so WHY were we not informed you were posting daily updates on your web site during the filming of iSundae II??? Mr. Treu and I are dismayed (to say the least!). However downhearted we are (don’t you like my verbage???) I am thrilled to be able to go back and read EVERY daily update without having to wait for the next day’s postings! I guess there is something good to come of us being the last to know about these things after all! (I trust you all know I am just kidding!). Mr. Treu and I are quite proud of all of you (NOT that we had a single thing to do with your brilliance, but we still like to feel proud). We’re looking forward to reading more postings as they come out. Our love goes out to all of you!
