Greetings!  Getting so darn close.  In the picture Alex and I are so darn excited that the cases are all assembled and waiting for our discs!!!  A couple small issues.  IndieGoGo has not sent us the funds for the last bunch of contributions for some reason, so we are waiting for them.  Also, one of my masters I sent the duplicator had a hairline crack in it so I had to have another master created and sent out.  Must have been during the mail process.  The USPS are not our friends sometimes.  I guess the case I sent the discs in was shattered.  The BluRay master was damaged.  So this time it was sent in a metal steelbook case to be sure and I even secured the disc with tape.  Things are still rolling and should be finished soon and on our doorstep so we can begin mailing everything out!  Thank you!!!!

Been feeling strange these days. Bonehill Road is a milestone for me in many ways, something I have wanted to do for 25 years.... and now it is finished. Crazy feeling. Maybe my most personal film. It's been an emotional, physical and spiritual roller coaster ride for sure. Ups and downs and battles fought and won... but even more going on deeper down inside.
Getting ready to send out some IndieGoGo stuff soon. There were a couple of unforseen setbacks and a crack in a master disc. I have been very frustrated and upset about it. I wanted to get IndieGoGo stuff started around Halloween. It has haunted me and made it hard to sleep or focus. First time I have ever done an IndieGoGo and I wanted to impress everyone and be ahead of the curve. The whole thing has had me all over the map emotionally... a real bundle of nerves.
Keep in mind, I feel we accomplished something kind of crazy and amazing in the first place. We actually began shooting this film June 24th and last full day was August 19th... that is 7 weeks of shooting, mostly on the weekends due to jobs and such - we did around 20 days. We also did a few days of pickup shots, but no full shooting days. Just things that had to be reshot due to technical issues or some extra effects shooting. Editing began almost immediately after first scenes were wrapped. I had to have the film done, as close as possible, for the theatrical premiere in October.
The editing was completed a few days before the premiere. This included taking an editing break to flu to Hollywood and shoot some effects inserts as promised to our IndieGoGo backers. We spent some incredible time with FX maestro Joe Castro, got all our shots thanks to Joe bending over backwards with basically 16 days notice to get it all done on time and ready for filming when we got there. We spent the following day hanging with our pals in LA, doing some business meetings, trying to make some deals and then with no sleep, jumping back on a plane and landing in KC. That day I grabbed a few hours rest, jumped up and checked all our footage. I then began editing it all into the film. We had about 3 weeks until showtime and I had to finish final mastering, sound design, color correction and get all our IndieGoGo peeps into the end credits. THAT was a job from hell. LOL. But I made it.
The night of the premiere, I watched the audience and how they reacted to the film. Linnea Quigley was in town and it was a huge success, but I saw some things I wanted to change, to refine. So I went back once I had Linnea settled in (Thank you Stacy Weible) and started watching over and over, making notes on my yellow legal pad. 3 pages later, I began the refining process and soon had masters ready to send out.
Next thing I know were a series of setbacks and some delays. NOT tragic delays mind you. The film was fine, no major issues, all things that could and would be fixed. But it all takes time. Time I had not intended or counted on.
But I now see the setbacks for what they are... they are simply things I had no control over. Beating myself up won't make it happen any faster. Technical issues happen and the USPS causing a disc to crack happens. And in the end, it was probably for the best because it allowed me time to find a couple of sound issues, and tweak the opening of the film to make it even more brutal. Eli DeGeer and I spoke in depth about some things with her character and it also gave me a bit of insight to improve the film.
Of course I only had a few hours because I had to remaster new discs and get things shipped out again. But I refused to sleep and spent several hours working on a few things that improved the film. I restructured the intro scene from the ground up, I did a full Sound Design overhaul on the scene. I like it much better. It packs a harder punch than before and it's damned brutal. I also went in and corrected the few sound issues (mainly stereo sep issues) and even managed to rework a few things that Eli had pointed out.
So sometimes a setback can be a blessing. Now the film that everyone is going to get soon will be even better. Checked the proofs that were sent from the duplicator and all looks great. Things are rolling forward. A bit behind schedule, but all the better for it.
So if it takes just a bit longer to get Bonehill Road into your hands, now maybe everyone will understand the process we went through, how we made what I consider a miracle to happen on this budget and an impossible schedule... and maybe you'll enjoy the film even more knowing that we truly have done everything in our power to bring you all an old school, no CGI WEREWOLF movie done with heart, soul, passion and great care by myself and an AMAZING and dedicated cast and crew.
This movie would not exist without EVERY ONE of the people who gave up their lives and poured themselves into this project. Who were there when I got worried or when I felt the incredible pressure to get done on time so we could meet our deadlines. Sometimes the pressure was really intense. Sometimes I questioned my sanity. Sometimes I would be on the edge - but against all odds, I am now reading good reviews and getting ready to send our little Monster Epic to all the wonderful people who believed in us and our film.
I dedicate the film to you all. And I hope we made you proud.
