With the pre-screenings and wrap party out of the way, we're now beginning to submit to the film festivals and we're excited about the last quarter opportunities as well as the 2013 circuit.
The feedback we have received so far has been very complimentary and encouraging. However, we know that for the typical festival, there are 50 times more entries than there are programming slots available so we just have to remain hopeful about our opportunities.
I'll keep you posted on this blog as and when I hear things....

Okay, so I have a pre-screening DVD in my grubby little mitts. I’m going to host a wrap party/private screening for cast and crew on Friday, August 17 if that date is good for everyone. Email me at email@example.com and let me know if you can make it. Posting to my wall, to Facebok "The Note Production Group" and to the Production Blog on the Picto Films website.

Posted by Director, Jared Cline:
We have finally reached the end! After some bumps in the road, we were able to finish the dialogue, SFX, and music this week. We pulled in extra help from sound effects supervisor, Sarah Passon and sound supervisor, Jacob Price. Thank you guys! It will be mixed down this weekend, and we will have a DVD copy on Monday. I want to thank each, and every one of you for the time you have put in. I will get my speech ready for the wrap party!

Desperate to see the film? Yeah, me too. I’ve been getting a lot of nudges asking me when The Note will be ready so I thought I’d provide a quick update.
The film is finished but still needs DVD assembly with the final audio mastering holding things up a little as key people on the team have been on vacation.
I’m holding a production meeting next week to work out when we can cut to DVD so that we can fling them out across the planet. I believe we’re about 2 weeks out. The AIFF has been notified and is expecting to receive our film by the end of July, so even though we’re running a little behind schedule, we still qualify for submission.
I’m so proud of this film and everybody who has been involved with it. Rest assured, as soon as it’s ready you will be hearing about it!

It’s more than appropriate that I simply cut and paste the opening sentence from my last update which read, “ Wow, I can’t believe it’s been so long since I last updated the Blog.” I feel the same way again. Busy, busy, busy.
Since my last update on May 16, several things have been in the works. First off, The Note has been working its way through the maze of post-production and we got our final cut on May 31. Armed with this final cut, Cory Perschbacher, our music composer, was able to get to work on the film’s score and what a fantastic job he has done. While he was working on the score, we signed colorist Robbie Curtis to complete the final color grading for the film and he’s also done a fantastic job. This coming Wednesday we will have a white label pre-release DVD in our grubby mitts and we can’t wait to share it with the pre-release community before sharing the fully-packaged version with the world. If you haven’t already seen the trailer, check it out on this site.
David Geary is a movie poster designer and he will be producing our poster and DVD cover as soon as we finalize a design. You will see it on this site and up on IMDb in a few weeks time.
Secondly, you will also see a few extra pages here soon. In addition to focusing on the development of “Stranger,” an unsettling drama that deals with the consequences of childhood neglect, Picto Films is also producing the sci-fi movie, “Immerse Me” - by writer/director Eduardo Benavides which commenced shooting 2 weeks ago. In association with Crazy Rebel Productions and on behalf of Picto Films, I will also be the executive producer for the Robert Rodriguez-esque feature film, “El Guey” which also commences filming in Austin this month. Look out for these pages on the site over the next few weeks.
Finally, I am also pleased to promote the Undertone Films forthcoming movie, “Between The Strings” in which I played a British music producer who attempts to help the film’s protagonist, Austin Parker, as he struggles to balance a life of fame and family. You can see the details on their website at www.undertone-films.com. The producer tells me that a theatrical trailer will be available this month.
That’s it for now. I’m cutting and pasting the opening sentence to my clipboard so I am ready for my next Blog update.
Peace and Blessings...
