It’s been over a year since I began Sorrow Hill in earnest and each day brings me closer to it’s completion and it’s been quite a journey. A lot of people feel the movie should be edited and out by now and I hear their opinions on a daily basis and it would bother me before…not anymore. Those who are complaining really don’t have any idea what it takes to edit a feature film by yourself. I won’t bore you with the details but let me assure you it can be rather tedious. I work on Sorrow Hill just about every day, it may only be for an hour but I try to accomplish something. If this was the only thing on my plate, yes the movie would be edited. However I still have a full time job and a family. I do my best to budget my time and I have learned how to do a good job at budgeting my time but this isn’t a process that can be rushed. It can be if you want a crappy product…I don’t.
Sorrow Hill is an independent film and from the beginning I’ve done virtually everything alone. Once the movie is complete it will be a huge burden lifted off my shoulders for there are other projects I am dying to work on that I have set aside until SH is completed. I have begun refunding money to those who pre-ordered the DVD. I apologize for the movie not being completed and I hope you still buy a copy when it is out. I am just tired and at my ropes end…I hope everyone will eventually realize that I am doing all that I can. The one thing I have learned throughout this process is who my real friends are.
On a side note, if you didn’t listen to the last podcast, I want to announce I will no longer be doing a radio show on Friday nights. No more Rick and Ron Radio and no more Grindhouse Radio. It was fun while it lasted but the shows have run their course.
For Love of Zombies is on the back burner until Sorrow Hill is completed and until I can raise the necessary capital to produce the film.
I have 16 days to change the name of my company or at least dissolve Grindhouse Pictures. Not sure what the new name will be, honestly I’ve been trying to come up with a name I like and I can’t. I’ve gotten a lot of cool suggestions but none that really capture my imagination. Stay tuned…the next 16 days should be interesting.
