Naturally after getting excited typing up yesterday's post, I couldn't wait to get started on production of Drive-In of the Dead's first cinematic endeavor. It all began innocently enough: I just wanted to get some opening credits knocked out in Photoshop - and it kind of snowballed from there. What next started out as simple location scouting turned into taking a few pictures - which turned into shooting a few very basic shots on video. Making a rough edit just to flesh out some ideas turned into cutting together a one minute trailer that, while crude, could basically be used to pitch a low-concept horror movie idea.

All in all it was a ton of fun and a great way to spend the last day of Christmas vacation (even though I almost got frostbite on my fingers doing it!) Work will continue on this project as we re-work it and refine it - and shoot more scenes once the piles of snow melt! More to come...
