As with everything having to do with The Night Shift, this was a learning experience. Thomas is still new to this whole being in front of the camera business, so he had some nerves to overcome. The show required we shoot in HD, so we had an unfamiliar (borrowed) camera and a whole slew of computer challenges to contend with. Who would have guessed that our post-production programs wouldn't play well with high-definition? We're currently researching both hardware and software options now, since a new HD camera is probably going to become a necessity. Now, how we're going to pay for it is another story. We're looking into options for that, too.
Ah, yes! Financing! Thomas has a script ready to roll, and some pretty fantastic (yet, doable) creature and special effects ideas for our next project. I'm not at liberty to say much, just yet, but it will focus pretty heavily on the Jersey Devil mythos. Of course, as ready as I am to get started on the fun stuff, we first have to figure out a way to pay the bills. That seems to be a recurring theme, here...
Things have suddenly kicked into high gear around Fighting Owl headquarters, and we're just trying to keep up. These are exciting times!
