Re: Intrepid Updates

Okay, so we at Team Intrepid are hoping to release The Stone Unturned next month. I can't say exactly when next month (I simply don't know) and we're likely going to have to make a few compromises, but at this stage we're all anxious to just put this one to bed. None of us thought it'd take anywhere near this long to complete, and as it stands it's a bit of a noose around our necks, sapping energy and enthusiasm that would be better spent on new projects.

So, no more delays. The end of May is our deadline. And hopefully, I haven't just jinxed the whole damn thing.

Re: Intrepid Updates

Thanks.

We've had enough bad luck on this one so far, so hopefully we're done with that. In fact, screw it, I'm making my own luck from here on out.

Just take your time and don't release the acts separately.

Re: Intrepid Updates

Thanks everyone, appreciate the kind words.

This one has been one long exercise in frustration, I'll be glad just to put it to bed. Definitely *this* May.

Re: Intrepid Updates

Believe me, I've been there, done that, and folks ended up loving that production.

Same with fanzines when I was doing them; you'd end up hating one, and it would end up selling more copies than the others released at the same time.

Yours will be fine!

Re: Intrepid Updates

Thanks, I hope so.

In all honesty, it's far from perfect, but it's also probably better than our earlier efforts. Ironically, we've grown somewhat in our skills since we shot this so it's not really representative of our current capabilities, but such is life.

That really is a hazard of these fan productions. The longer you're at it and the better you get at it, the more fault you will find with your earlier work. I can see this being especially troublesome when you have an unfinished production hanging over you whilst you are trying to get other projects rolling. I can say that I believe "The Stone Unturned" will be quite good. I also suspect that the mistakes and weaknesses that are so glaring to you and the rest of the crew will probably be much less so to the audience.

Hats off to you all for deciding to bite the bullet and move on. Having a clean slate will be an enormous relief, I am sure.

Re: Intrepid Updates

That's true Mike, although to be honest I think I'm just being fairly realistic about the pros and cons of what we've done.

And thank you again folks.

I'm currently hopeful we'll get this out by mid-May, but it could still be later in the month. Ran into some problems with the ADR one one scene, where we just couldn't make the dialogue match. As a result, I'm having to make some visual changes to that scene, but I don't forsee it being a major delay.

I'm really tempted to sit down with Steve, who directed and edited it, and record a commentary track, if only to talk about the various roadblocks we've had.

Re: Intrepid Updates

You totally should. If anything, it would be a valuable educational tool to the rest of the fan film community, and will be a keepsake of the entire experience for yourself. If I may be so bold, think of doing it the way Ron Moore did all his Battlestar podcasts, and you'll have a solid gold commentary as I'm concerned.

That sound like a great idea Nick! I think it would be very generous to share your hard-won knowledge and hopefully save some other would-be producers from having to learn the hard(est) way. I don't think it takes long for anyone who gets involved in these projects to realize that there is no "easy" way to learn how to do it!
