So, we’re working on a few projects with the incomparable Annie Cruz.
One we have mentioned before on this blog, online and in person, it is HTB, an action drama starring Annie as an assassin for hire.
We are continuing work on that, breaking down the feature script and developing the budget and business plan for it so we can make it easy to digest for potential investors.
The second project is CRAPSHOOT.
Crapshoot centers on a struggling children’s book author who stumbles onto a techno-mystical device that bonds itself to her wrist. She soon learns that the device grants her a new ability…whenever she dies. Now she struggles for normalcy and answers about the origins of the device while dodging very dangerous people who want it back.
Our plan is to film a sizzle reel/trailer when Annie is in Texas at the beginning of August. We’ve got some stalwarts I have called upon to help on the shoot and be involved including Kerry McCormick, Stan Baker, Cloyse Caruthers, Tony Dotson, Brandon Henry, Corrie, Jorns, Harry Johns and my brother, Jermaine Spencer, who will be flying in that weekend for the shoot. So we are putting a lot into it and working to make it awesome.
In addition we have set up a promo shoot for both HTB and Crapshoot.
We have a campaign on Indiegogo hoping to raise some capital to sweeten the shoot and what we are able to do on it.
It’s slow going at the moment. We are hoping that changes. We realize we’re at a slight disadvantage as most media campaigns have video or pix or artwork to go with what they are trying to raise money for. We have nothing but out word that we will produce. That may not work for some. We will see if things changes, ideally they do.
