Congratulations to the cast and crew of "Hopelessly in June" for an amazing end of production! We have such a great support system and invaluable resources - couldn't have done it without you all!
Our last days of production were our biggest yet! We had such talented actors join the team: Peter Jason, Stuart Pankin, Keith David, Ella Joyce, Ed Asner, Johnny Gill and Tiny Lister. Thank you all for allowing us to take our film to the next level and show people we really know what we're doing.
For many of us this is the largest project we've taken on and completed to date and so it's a huge achievement all around. We were able to celebrate with a champagne toast at the end of our biggest day surrounded by friends, family and colleagues in a beautiful space in San Pedro, CA.
Our post team is already underway cutting, recording, mixing and scoring. It won't be long until we can share "Hopelessly In June" with all of you!
What I ask is that you tell your friends and family about this film. "Like" it on Facebook and follow in Twitter. This way you'll be in the loop when we announce when and where you can see the film!
Thank you again to all who have supported us along the way.
If you follow me on Twitter or if you are friends with me on Facebook then you probably think, "Oh Allison, that super busy producer who runs around L.A. like she owns the place? Yeah, she's working on everyone's project."
Well that just about sums it up. My philosophy is to figure out what it is that you love to do and then do it with passion and vigor and at some point it will all pay off. Since coming out to L.A. in 2004 I have produced over 100 DVDs (menus, games, features, read-along's (and read-to-me's) as well as my fair share of short films and PSAs. While I'm still doing all of these things on a limited basis, it's been since the end of 2008 that I've been engrossed with film productions big and small.
What I am most excited about is that the feature film and the two webseries I'm producing are all at that figurative edge of the cliff and the F18 of hard work and opportunity is about to wiz by and take us on a journey.
Hopefully you'll be right there with me enjoying Hopelessly in June, S.O.L.O. The Series and Purgatory, Inc.
Check back with me here - there will be updates and I may reveal scandelous info (and pics!) about the cast and crew I work with (my attorney is shaking his head "no way" and my publicist is clapping... we'll have to wait to see who wins...).
