What's Next?

With winter just around the corner, we here at SoftLight have lots on the go...

As we finish up the sound edit on both When You're Gone and Second Hand Smoke, we'll also be putting the finishing touches on The Dance before shipping them all off to festivals worldwide.

Greg is busy working on his next script; a Coen brothers styled short, in the form of a thriller with big questions for society.

As for myself, I'm almost done the first draft of a feature film tentatively titled Buddy Hoppy. A buddy road trip comedy with a heart. The plan is to go into production in the fall of 2011, so there is lots to keep us pre-occupied and warm during the upcoming months.

Stray Dogs, and a teaser

Four weeks later I'm back from filming Cinegraphe Productions latest feature titled Stray Dogs. A comedic, crime caper with a twist, sure to delight audiences. I fullfilled the role of 1st Assistant Director this time around, and with quite a few familiar faces back on the crew, and talent to brag about, was happy to do so.

Back at it, here's a teaser from SoftLight's upcoming release titled "When You're Gone", expected to be completed this summer.

Before February we hope to wrap the filming and post for When You're Gone. Here are a few stills-more to come later.

2010 looks to be a busy year for us. Aside from our own projects in development(a YouTube series, a feature and another short), we'll also be working with Cin├ęgraphe Productions Inc. again as a 1st AD for their next feature; "Stray Dogs". Also Will will be heading the cast of Timeline Pictures next short project; "Box Face". That's right, acting.
