As we get ready to start the promotional work for the movie and try to get it released in theater's here in Maine and New Hampshire as well as a promotional tour filled with Meet and Greet events with the cast of the movie my focus is drawn to Sins of Man III : Tribulation and how I want to send Mortis out with a Bang !!!
I 've got my eye on Sins of Man III : Tribulation and how all of this wraps up and I know how I want to do it and I want there to be BIG Twists in the final movie of the trilogy for sure but I worry about making a wrong move and upsetting the audience or doing something completely off the wall and confusing the audience . I think what I have planned and written so far won't do either of those things but who knows .
As many of you know the trilogy isn't the only thing on the release schedule for Wicked Carnival Productions with several projects coming out in the coming years . We have a web series, another slasher movie, a sci fi film as well as a few projects still in very early development .
I'm very blessed to be able to have a mind for writing and directing films . Although I do enjoy writing them much more then directing them because I have this nagging thought that what I write never translates to film as well as I've written it, if that makes sense at all .
Admittedly I have a problem with not focusing on what the camera sees and looking at the whole room while shooting . ( This is a bad habit I know that I need to fix) I trust Chris Fyfe who is my Executive Producer. Cameraman, Editor, Music Supervisor etc. etc.)
The first time what I wrote translated to film well was the garage scene in Sins of Man : Rise of Mortis that scene worked out very well because we had alot of discussion and worked out all the fighting etc. before we shot the scene .
I thought Sins of Man : Rise of Mortis was not going to be what I wanted on film because I hadn't seen the finished film until the cast viewing party on October 30th last year . and I was surprised to see that it worked out very well and what I wanted from script to screen was there .
Note : I don't rewatch any scene I'm in on set because I trust Chris to tell me if it was good or if it needs to be reshot, Hell I don't even watch my own movies because I'm my own worst critic .
Last Friday Night was awesome because I felt that what we were shooting was exactly how I wrote it in the script and it translates very well form page to screen . I also have an issue with not focusing on what the camera is seeing as I'm looking at everything around the camera again a bad habit I have but we are working on getting a monitor for me to focus on so I see exactly what the camera sees during every scene .
Note : As far as I'm concerned having a good partner on set is just as important as having a killer script, a great cast / crew and even having a good director because if you're the director and you have a good partner on set you can trust to make your movie what you want it to be then you're already winning at film making .
Alittle more about Sins of Man III : Tribulation as we prepare to wrap shooting on Vengeance and switch gears from filming to promotional work while I'm on the promotional tour I will be working to finish the script for the final movie in the trilogy with most of it already written and a few ideas handed to me by Caitlynn McCauley we have a pretty good story with a twist the NO ONE will see coming :)
