Later this month we begin shooting a short film by our friend, Terrence Moore. Terrence plays in the band American Catastrophe. The film is called Dirty Work. It deals with some familar themes for any artist; working for the man.
Along with Terrence, we’re working with the talented John Baker of MK12. John’s a hell of an animator and illustrator. Throughout pre-production it’s been a great exchange of ideas and we’ve learned a lot.
We won’t get into the plot, because . . . well . . . that’s what the film is for. Suffice it to say it involves a lot of really exciting production challenges, including mostly exterior shooting, a lot of night shots, and a tight shooting schedule. Making sure the production keeps up with the sun is a lot like putting together a jigsaw puzzle of a moving clock – just the way we like it.
Meanwhile we’re working on a new project for AT&T (formerly Cingular). We’ll keep you posted on this one as it progresses, which will probably be in fits and spurts.
