Even when things get stalled or stopped, I keep finding ways to stay busy. For those of you that knew, I was in the preproduction stages of In My Eyes. It was a complex story about a female killer, but some twists and turns on love, family, and the twisted intricacies of culture. The investor made some unfortunate investments that didn’t pay off, leaving the production here stranded. So, what next?
That’s easy…more work. I shelved many projects with computer issues and for the film, but now that both are sorted out, I am going back and doing some cleaning. I am finishing the short documentary about Patrick, the man who lost his partner to AIDS and was kicked out of the hospital because he was the Domestic Partner, not the Married Partner. I am cleaning that up for submission into a few film festivals and release for people to finally see.
Things continue on with The Last Stand. Our releases on DailyMotion have been slow but steady. We get spikes in viewings, so it has been odd and erratic. The nice thing is that we are getting more viewers, more responses, and more opportunities to get another season going.
The biggest project currently in the works is a documentary about a local iconoclastic revolution. I am not at liberty to discuss to much, but the beauty is that there seems to be funding in the works. I am really excited to work on this, because it was something that I wanted to do months ago and had to shelve it. Oh, shelf, you have such nice things on you. I hope to come back to them.
In the most immediate future, GSP will be filming for Pride NW and the annual Pride Fest in Portland. While I am not overly excited about continued live event coverage, I am happy to be doing work for the great folks at Pride NW, and I am always happy to have the camera running. When the highlights are edited, I will have them posted here for folks to see.
Next week, Galaxy Sailor Productions meets up with @Large films. Stay tuned for that.
