Wow, it's been a really long time since I posted anything to this blog and I'm absolutely certain that no one is dying to hear what I've been up to. Full disclosure: This post is pre-dated by almost a month - I'm writing well after the fact and updating with the date I should have talked about this. Anyhoo... The project I've spent most of the spring working on is a web series pitch pilot called ShadowPlay.
ShadowPlay springs into existance from the creative mind of my good friend Sketkh Williams. It's the story of a special agent whose partner is his own shadow. Sound crazy? Well, it helps that Shadow (proper noun) has a lot of character. That's about all I want to give away about ShadowPlay right now, but I'll happily tease you with a little trailer.
Sketkh and I worked very closely on this project, producing and directing it together. Basically, the characters, story, and words are his, the images are mine; everything else we collaborated on. It was a pretty good arrangement, but I'd be remiss if I didn't give a shout-out to the other good folks that were involved in the production: My good friend Dan Brosnan who handled the lights and helped me out with the camera, Mike "Wally" Wallach who did an amazing job with on-set sound, and Kristina Huegel who pulled double duty as AD and Makeup Artist. I also want to compliment Jennifer Martina on her portrayal of our assassin, Andrew Kimler for voicing Shadow, and, of course, Sketkh for being the petey-est Pete I could hope for.
Oh, one last thing: If you like what you see here, I'd appreciate it if you popped over to the ShadowPlay Facebook Page and give us a quick like. Thanks!
