I missed my readjusted deadline to ship DVDs and post the movie by a month. This is partly due to some unforeseen logistical issues with having the prints from the trip made, but mostly due to my crippling self doubt and inability to put it down.
At this point I’ve done everything I can for it, and I’m okay with that. It’s difficult looking at something you’ve spent dozens of hours pouring over, only to think, “FUCK! I need an insert shot here!”
This is the problem with shooting a short film in Thailand with only two other people, one camera, two lenses, no lights, and all over a six day period where more than half that time is taken up by travel.
But I’ve done what I can. There literally isn’t anything more I can add to this thing unless I had the cash to fly back to Thailand on my own dime, which suffice it to say, I do not.
To anyone from the Tumblr community that purchased a DVD, they ship this week, starting on Tuesday. I thank you for your patience, and greatly appreciate the support.
For anyone else that’s interested, I will post a link to the film the morning of Friday, July 18th.
