KOB Shot of the Day #88: Polishing our Steel (er, foam)

Shot with iPhone, click to enlarge.

Greetings all,

Im writing this just as Howard, The producers and I are putting the finishing touches on the next cut of KoB and everyone is grinning. It's a gratifying feeling, especially for a Friday so we go into the weekend happy and hopeful, ready for the next steps...and no blood was spilled! (at least not in the edit) ...ALWAYS a good thing.

We JUST inserted a temp "power ballad" into a moment early in the film and we couldn't stop laughing! So funny how some things just "fit", be it a music cue, a sound effect, an FX shot or even just taking out/adding a few frames to a shot...and this was a great finishing edit to go out with so everyone is jazzed. Great to see the film's finer points getting smoothed out and tweaked with the help of producers Mark & Matt (pictured here, weighing in on an edit with their usual grace) who have been in the EditCave for the last few days to get it ready for the next little screening. These intimate viewings are so essential, even if its amongst friends and family, just to continue getting objective opinions on what's working and what's not, so wish us luck in the next few weeks as we slowly test the KoB waters!

Also, our Twitter followers for Kob (@Badassdom_movie) have reached 1,500 strong and as promised, we're giving away a limited edition crew shirt randomly, good luck! We were thinking the next mini-contest would be when we reach another number (2,000? 2500?) we'd release a cool still from the film (which would be the first!)…any interest in that? Might be a fun way to get the word out…and believe me, we got some images that are just burning up the AVID that we want to show! Regardless, Thanks for the support and keep checking in here and on the Twitter feed for more!

Hope you all have a good weekend, Knights!


PS: Thanks to everyone who sent their condolences on KoB not making Sundance….but not to worry, we never submitted it because ITS NOT DONE! There's plenty of other festivals we'll attack when the time is right and the film is ready to show in that capacity, so stay tuned…in the meantime, if you haven't already, follow @Badassdom_Movie for news, updates, contests and more surprises! Huzzah!
