Sorry for the lack of posting of late — I’ve been absolutely swamped preparing for this past weekend’s National Film Challenge competition. And as of yesterday evening at 6:00 p.m., Tohubohu Productions completed its official entry, “Screening Process (A Loser’s Guide to Love),” and submitted it via FedEx. I checked this afternoon (after getting a good night’s sleep), and it was delivered at 12:44 p.m. today.
The genre we drew was “romance,” and our assigned elements were a map (prop), J. Upton, Dog Walker (character), and “You caught me at a bad time” (line of dialogue). The finished film (and forgive my teminology — I know it’s not really film, but that’s the convention the contest has adopted) tells the story of Kevin, who recounts to his friends his romantic misadventures as he attempts to recreate scenes from 1980s romantic comedies. I am really pleased with the end product, and believe that represents substantial growth in our production capabilities.
I’ll write more when I’ve got a chance — I’ve got a lot of catching up to do — but I did want to take the opportunity to say thanks to everyone involved. Everyone put in work far beyond the “call of duty,” and I can only hope that we at the tail end of things have produced a piece that accurately reflects the extraordinary effort everyone made.
