Funny story, you see. Tyler and I made plans to shoot a movie called The Legend of Grassman, on our own dime and with our own equipment, crew, actors, and food. This movie would be shot over the course of 7days plus a couple of weekends for some indoor scenes. Then, this masterpiece would go through several months of post-production and be ready for the festival circuit in 2010.

Being the eager beaver that I am, I decided to make a “teaser” poster. On it, in the largest font on the sheet, is says “2010” quite clearly. I know it says this because I wrote it, and because people constantly ask me “Where the hell is your movie?”

Well, here we are. It’s been a year and a half and a total of 26+ days of shooting and a few dollars more than planned. We have nearly completed the film. Tyler has made several rough cuts, and it gets more fleshed out with each. There are a handful of scenes to shoot with the three key cast members, and some looping (although not as much as anticipated). And we are still scouting for a composer. But, it’s so close, it hurts.

What’s the hold up? Honestly, you name it, it’s happened. From weather and scheduling issues, to personal and career concerns. 2010 was The Year of What Now?!?!

But, have no fear. The film is not at risk. It is surrounded by a team of dedicated folks who are determined to make this the greatest bigfoot movie ever shot on a Panasonic Lumix GH-1. We are working hard to finish up the last bits and pieces and will be presenting it to you this new year.

Also, in the new year, you can look forward to a new website dedicated to the movie, which sneak peaks, stills, trailers, downloads, and more. And as an expansion to the Production Blog, Tyler and I, as well as many of the people involved with the making of this film, will be doing several podcasts and/or video podcasts where we with talk in detail about the process of getting this film made.

So, stay with us. 2011 is going to be The Year of The Grassman! Which is way better than The Year of What Now or The Year of Shitfuckhelldamn…
