Scream Park Project Update #6: We're Finished!
Happy New Year all!
I'd like to open this update with the big news: the film is done! It's been a long 8 months of production and post production, with even longer pre-production but the project has come to a close. This is not the end of Scream Park, only a new beginning. We have our big hometown premiere scheduled for January 6th at the amazing Hollywood Theater here in Pittsburgh. It's a big, retro picturehouse that has been recently renovated and become a haven for local and independent features. I'm honored to have them screen the film for our local crowd and fans.
The next big news is we're just waiting on the DVDs to come back from the duplication house and then all rewards packages will start going out. I personally apologize for the delay in getting all of your goodies out. The original estimated time frame was overshot by about six weeks and we needed the extra time to finish post production and master the final video. I'm sorry everyone had to wait so long, but I appreciate all of your patience with this. Trust me when I say this kind of stuff keeps me up at night.
The T-shirts are in from a Pittsburgh company and they're awesome! They've very soft and the front logo is silkscreened on. I refused to go cheap and get Hanes "Beefy-Ts" with some ironed on logo. These shirts were a little extra but very much worth it. I hope you all enjoy them.
Digital Copies of Scream Park
Lastly, everyone who donated gets a digital copy of the film. This will be in iTunes/iOS friendly format so feel free to put it on your iPad, iPhone, or AppleTV. We'll host the file and it will be available to download ON JANUARY 6th, to coincide with our Pittsburgh premiere. The link will be sent out to all backers on Sunday. Enjoy, and feel free to post on our website and/or Facebook page your thoughts.
I will send out a final announcement and thank you when the packages start leaving to find their way to your front door steps. For those of you to whom I'm sending packages overseas, please be a little extra patient with me as I'm at the mercy of customs and international shipping.
Thank you all and here's to 2013!

Scream Park Project Update #5: Merch and Screenings
Thank you all for bearing with us while we wrap up Scream Park! The footage has been color corrected and I'll be sending it over to the sound guy for a final mix/sync. The goal is to have the final cut sent off to DVD duplication in the next 7-10 days. From there, it's just waiting to get the disks back from the company (I'm looking into the availability of having a rush job done to get the disk out for Christmas). When it goes off to be duplicated, we're going to make the digital copy available to all of our Kickstarter friends for immediate viewing.
The T shirts are also on order. The good people from our local Pittsburgh company Clockwise Tees have provided a final proof of the shirt and are silkscreening them as I write this. I've included the submitted artwork in this update. So we should have shirts soon.
The Ogre signed stuff is collected and ready. The signed posters are good to go. So it's just a wait for the DVDs to get back to me and out goes the swag!
We're also beginning to book venues for the film. Our hometown premiere is on January 6th at the Hollywood Theater in Pittsburgh. It's a great, retro theater that's perfect for an 80s styled film! We're currently also exploring options like Tugg.com and film festivals to reach the widest possible audience. Our world premiere on Halloween went overwhelmingly well and we want to make Scream Park as available as possible.
Thank you all again!

Scream Park Production Update: DVD Pre-Orders, Donations & More
I'm sure everyone wants to know WHEN CAN I SEE THIS THING? We've been working hard for a year and half to bring this project to light. Looking back, it's hard to believe it's been that long! Now I'm happy to announce to all of our faithful followers that the film will be completed in SIX WEEKS.
The rough cut is almost done and we've got some quick shoots left but we're almost there. We're currently in the process of booking some theatrical showings as well as getting this out on DVD ASAP. And keep your eyes peeled for a new trailer coming soon!
We're also making some updates to our website this week:
- Our shopping cart will be up soon, and you'll be able to pre-order the DVD of the film.
- Fans have expressed interest in donating funds and continuing to support the film financially above and beyond the Kickstarter and IndieGoGo campaigns. We'll be adding a link to do so.
- Updated graphics throughout site.
Thank you to everyone who has been supporting us and spreading the word about our film. We couldn't do this without you!
