Josh and I are working extensively on a number of projects together (no pun intended), and as a result have several things to occur in succession.
First up will be his film company's site - Perception Media Films, as well as sites for some of the pictures themselves.
My personal favorite, one I've been working on for several months, should follow soon after the launch of the company site. It's a wonderful piece, and I assure you'll dig it.
I recall when I first read the script, it was in LA when Ed and I shared a house. Insomnia (not knowing the boundaries of east or west coast) continued as always, and I'd noticed a stack of scripts on the coffee table that Josh had left behind after he'd blasted through town to say hey.
I took the script to bed to have a quick read (being a script for a short film) without any preconceived expectations.
Though what resulted in reading the script floored me to the point of tears. The story was that incredible. Without images, narratives and the like, this raw script blew me away both physically and emotionally.
The following morning I called Josh and insisted on making the site for it, to which he agreed.
By coincidence, they were filming the final scenes that weekend and Josh asked me to drop by the sound stage.
When I arrived, Josh was midflight in direction and the crew were everywhere in getting it right for the limited time they had.
The set alone displayed all that was in my imagination from reading. I couldn't wait to see how the camera saw it.
When I'd made the prototype for the site the next week, Josh's reaction was staunch that our head's are tight and in sync and that it's a keeper.
There's a reason I've not yet mentioned the title (on several postings). Josh has changed the working title, and instinct tells me he may possibly change it again.
But no matter title, the story will effect you, as will the cinematography. If the site does half the job the film does, then our instincts are on the money and we'll have done our job right.
The timing is ironic, in that when we launched Mike's site, he was on the road and not able to make the announcement himself.
The same holds true for Josh, who is now in Brasil for a few weeks, thus I'm the middleman once again, but only for a short time; I'll get the fellas in here to say hello soon enough.
Josh's launch is that of his own film company entitled Perception Media Productions, also known as Perception Media Films, a newly established machine of filmatude.
That is not to say Josh has gone stag in the world of motion picture. He still works with haxan as well as Gear Head and many other companies. It is only he has assembled something of his own that contains its own voice, just as Mike, Ed, Dan, Gregg and the gang have well established.
