I say in pretty well all of my posts that I am working with good people on my sets. It’s never been an untruth, it’s never been an exaggeration. There are plenty of talented actors in the DFW area, those that are known already and plenty of up and coming talent. Well some of that talent has lent themselves to one of my latest projects: Wildcat.IMG_9616

We have filmed a bit the last couple weekends since the last entry. Things have been a bit choppy since we are filming multiple scenes from different episodes in the locations we find ourselves in to get as much out of the way as we can. It’s the same approach we used doing Party Girl years ago. It’s hard to get some people out multiple times since they are usually working on a set of some kind, movie, commercials, web series, whatever the case may be. Or some of them may just be working that 9 to 6 grind. So we try to do all we can when we can.

Of course when you can finally string things together and you have enough for rough cuts of the episodes and you can see it all flow, well that’s just nice.¬†IMG_9860

Still working through some technical kinks as we make use of the Atomos Ninja Flame when filming. Proper exposure has always been something I have had to try extra hard to wrapped my head around. I’ve had some scenes that have been lit great over the years (mostly by accident) and some that have, well, not been lit as well. I just need someone on set with far greater knowledge of it than I, so I can focus on just directing. Of course that is the same story as it’s always been over the years. Probably have read it on the blog numerous times, finding people who are about the stuff they talk about, it’s hard to do. So you are forced to be a one-man band much of the time. But hey, anything to get the project done and the story out there. My goal is to make sure people look good though, to reflect the good work they are putting into the project.

We were back in the hot box Sunday, one of our warehouse kinda sets. Hot is not the word for how it is in there, but we did some good things. Fabian continued to be great in his role. Originally he was playing another character, but thanks to someone flaking out on us, Fabian switched roles and we both agree he is better suited and having more fun in the new role.

Thankfully Devin Mobley, who was on hand for Party Girl Season 2 as Kayin, was able to fill the role Fabian vacated and has been great at it. The only possibly knock is I was looking at Devin to play a lead character in the series we do following Wildcat. Hell, might still have him do it, we shall see, since the series all flow together continuing the same overall narrative in a very Defender-ish fashion.

If all goes well with Wildcat, and thus far it has, Hourman will follow, then Sandman and then they all come together in the single JSA short film alongside Mr. Terrific and The Atom.

But of course Wildcat needs a small amount of more scenes filmed, some TLC and it will be good to go. Those involved (Larry Johnson, AD Scott, Christa Allen, Devontae Hogan and more) have pretty good followings and supporters from other projects they have worked on so ideally they will check out Wildcat when it drops. I was thinking of just dropping it straight on the interwebs, but I may end up doing a screening for it. Make it a big deal. Of course all the eps together will be about ….40 minutes or so, so I am wondering ahead to what else could I show. Maybe screen another short of mine or someone else’s before the main event of the Wildcat series….we shall see.

It’s 2016.
Our goal is to get more eyeballs on Taurian Films. To get more people talking about Taurian Films, more people watching Taurian Films and making better effort to build and expand the brand.
Both brands actually, as there are two to build, Taurian Films of course and Jigsaw Entertainment, which I am building with my brother, Jermaine Spencer, as we carry out dreams, goals and plans we have had since we were kids.
To that end we have a handful of projects on our plate for this year that we are working on getting to the masses including:
SHIFT, a fantasy/adventure series that involves the open source character Jenny Everywhere.  Will have more on that tomorrow as we hold auditions for a couple of the main characters.

A Typical Tuesday, a Suicide Squad fan film currently in post. We delayed that from its original December release date due to wanting to fix some of the sound issues with it. That’s been a problem in productions past so we wanted to do what we can to ensure the two short episodes sound the best they can.

A shot of some of the cast for our Suicide Squad fanfilm, “A Typical Tuesday” coming this Spring.

Of course some people like fan films, some people hate them. They are also in discussion with the big boys filing a suit against a filmmaker for his group’s Star Trek fan film.

 

 

 

 

 


Cheerleader Karate School, Perky chicks, round house kicks and evil demons. We hope to create a fun, funny and action packed supernatural, martial arts dramadey.

-S.L.E.E.P.E.R.S., a black ops themed action drama series I am working on with my brother, Jermaine under our Jigsaw Entertainment banner.

Wrapped after a long but fun HTB teaser shoot.

-Hard Target B*tch, a graphic novel and film staring Annie Cruz as an assassin for hire who gets in trouble with the feds and has to turn to the internet friend she vowed to never meet in person. We’re using Annie’s likeness for the book and she will be starring in the film. Keep a look out for the fundraising campaign for this project to see you can help us make it happen.

 


 

Of course we still faithfully bang the drum of Party Girl: The Series, our beloved indie super series.

It stars Cait Pool and a host of other talented Texans as we tell the continuing story of Rachel Buchanan, average girl turned masked crime fighter.

Cait Pool, Party Girl for season two!!

The stakes get raised due to the friends she has made, enemies she has crossed and what is going on at home with her family. Not everyone makes it out alive this season, so be sure to get caught up with season one on BlackFlag.TV and Roku owners on MaddyG TV. Check season two online and on MaddyG TV coming later this month.


 

In addition we have a few other comedy projects in the early writing stages. At the latter half of 2015 there was some feet dragging in the creative stages of these projects, but we have redoubled our own efforts to make sure projects get plotted and scripts get done as we think we are sitting on some very good projects. Projects that can be made with a relatively minimal budget, tell a good story and address the agenda laid out above in getting more people looking at, talking about and buying into the brand.
Lots to do but we are eight days into 2016 and off and running.
