OookkKay!

Sorry I haven't updated in so long, things have been moving at a hectic pace!

I've got a new editing program, so after 6 years of using the same crappy editing system, I've upgraded to top of the line, which is rough because I pretty much had to teach myself how to edit movies all over again. It's a ridiculously badass program though and it has everything from blue screen to color correction to being able to put things in 5.1 digital sound. It's a lot to learn, but I'm rocking it now.

We've been filming steadily and the movie is damn near being done, I'd say hopefully by the end of next month!

Here some more insane pictures for you to enjoy, including, our group of vampire killers (and far as I'm concerned, every good vamp movie has to have a gang of vampire killers) so shots of Casey in her coffin and a nice gory shot of Liz holding a heart!

Ah yes, this is the cliched but inevitable scene where our regular guys finds out the chick he's fallen in love with is a cold, killing, blood-sucking, goddamn VAAMPPIIRREEE!!

I tried to put a spin on it though! I think this stuff came out downright beautiful!

Ok, so I'm working on this new trailer...right now...as we speak it's sitting in Movie Edit Pro...staring at me.

I HATE making trailers.

But this one especially frightens me.

The first "New Girls" trailer has over 4,000 veiws on youtube and it goes up like a 100 a day. It's the most successful trailer I've ever done. I've gotten a ridiculous amount of email about it, had more stories run on it than any other movie, people from fucking England have seen it and tracked me down on MySpace. I'm not really use to that amount of attention...and everyone is waiting for the full length trailer..damn ravenous for it and

well honestly...I'm scared...

....if it sucks...the momentum I've started goes away like dried shit in the wind. People are expecting it to blow them away, to really kind of freak them out like the first one, I really don't want to let anyone down buuuttt what the fuck can you do? I can only go with my gut, make it the best I can make it, try to get the plot in there as much as I can. This movie is so FUCKING different than all my other ones though! Before, shit, I could just take a ton of action scenes, splice them together with some music and WHAMMO...trailer.

Not with "The New Girls" though...this is a beast of a different nature.

So here I am...cutting it up, splicing it with music, finding all the cool stuff, those WOW moments, but making sure the heart of this thing shines through.

I don't want to give any kind of estimate on when it'll be done (red eyes are a BITCH) but MAYBE...tentatively..by the end of next week.

So the idea was to make the most craziest, bloodiest, intense staking scene EVER. I’m not sure if I succeeded…but I sure the fuck tried.

This is only half the scene…there’s a lot more going on in this room!



















We also shot some of this stuff…we came DAMN close to getting kicked out of Barnes and Noble haha luckily I sweet talked the lady into letting us finish the scene.

Check it out, Liz got featured in the "Vamp" section on this website. Click the link "vamp" on the left and she's the one all the way at the bottom. Pretty cool!

Well we have our first official review of The New Girls! If you haven't checked it out yet here's the link!

http://www.horroryearbook.com/547610/it-came-from-the-mailbox-the-new-girls

I was amazed that he thought it was my fastest moving film, because the whole time I was editing it I was saying, "UGH it moves too slow! It moves too SLOW!" So that surprised the hell out of me!

This is a blog the above reviewer wrote the other day, it's a GREAT little article, you might want to read the above review first before you read this:

http://xtopherjacques.wordpress.com/2010/01/17/ive-begun-to-turn/

I’ve Begun to Turn

"I can never review another Sonny Fernandez movie.

I only met Sonny through his work less than six months ago, and all that was supposed to happen was that I was going to watch another shitty movie, give another scathing review, and move on to the next abomination. It was going to be a simple punch of the time card, and I’d be watching some piece of shit with an abundance of budget and a dearth of ambition or love for the craft. It would be over and I’d be able to just do whatever the next thing was going to be.

Life, even in movie reviews, simply can not be mapped; I’m three movies and change into Sonny’s film catalogue now, and I can see that there is simply no turning back. After seeing his latest work, The New Girls , I can’t really say I’m an objective journalist anymore. Damn it, I’m a fan.

It’s neither high-concept nor high-budget. Sonny is the epitome of a guerilla filmmaker, a guy who can’t possibly be getting the legislative permission to pull off some of the shots he’s getting…but he’s getting them.

He’s assembled a group of actors–kids, in the best way–and they’re getting the point across, film after film. Over the course of a few years, a good portion of them have become good actors. Really, what the collective there at Down Twisted Productions have been able to do with so little is nothing short of miraculous. No budget, mostly night shooting, non-professional talent: good movie?

Yeah, “good movie!” I’ve been a horror movie fan for years and years. If not for movies like Dawn of the Dead, I’d have been bored out of my mind for the entirety of my adolescence, so incidentally, I’ve seen pretty much everything. High-concept and low-, I’ve either loved, endured or hated everything that the horror genre has had to offer. And in that, the movies that Sonny Fernandez makes carve a completely different niche.

The guy loves what he does. The actors, his friends, love what they do. They love making 2-hour epics with a budget for 10 minutes…and they love making it somehow work. Despite hiccups in acting, editing, lighting or cinematography along the way, the movies work. It’s like Ed Wood got it right…but without the negativity that comes along with associating Ed Wood with anything. And that’s why I can’t review his movies anymore.

In watching The New Girls, I felt myself begin to turn. Much like the vampires featured in the film, I found a change coming over me. The change was my transformation from “critic” to “fan.” My third Sonny Fernandez film viewed, my third enjoyed. I’m still well aware of the faults inherent in no-budget filmmaking, and in Sonny’s films, but I’m at the point now where that’s the only constructive criticism I can offer his movies. The love put into Bleed, The Last Battleground and The New Girls shows through every pore. And with that, I fear that I’ll no longer be fair when it comes to reviewing a Down Twisted production.

So from now on, I guess someone else will review the movies, which is a shame; I like watching free movies. Something tells me, though, that this time I’m going to be much happier buying them for my collection. Basically, it’s just nice to see someone give a shit again, budget be damned."
