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. 

DVDs Completed

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.

T-Shirts

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

Hello fans!

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 Hometown Premiere: Pittsburgh Jan 6th, 2013 | Indie Horror Movie starring Nivek Ogre

I'm pleased to announce we'll be holding our home town premiere in Pittsburgh just after New Years.  The film was based out of Pittsburgh, and so many Pittsburgh-based resources have helped support Scream Park that it's exciting to finally screen it for the city.  I couldn't be more pleased that we're also able to screen it at the Hollywood Theater in Dormont, which is just an awesome retro-style theater that's been recently renovated.  It's a great venue and I can't wait to see the film up on the marquee.  

Tickets are officially now on sale for the Jan 6th screening.  They're available through ShowClix here.  

You can find the Hollywood Theater here:

1449 Potomac Ave, Pittsburgh PA 15216

Doors open at 7:30pm and the event begins at 8pm.  Hope to see you there!

Scream Park Premiere: Meadville PA Oct 31, 2012

A very special thanks to all those who came out and supported us on our big night!  Scream Park premiered on Halloween night at the Movies in Meadville, just a few miles down the road from Conneaut Lake Park where most of the movie was filmed.  We had a great turn out of around 200 people -- including cast, crew, and members of the Conneaut Lake Park Board of Trustees.   The film was complimented with an all-out applause  when the credits finished. 

It was an awesome experience to finally screen the film (even at 95% completed), and was great to do so in front of the park management and Ghost Lake employees all of whom happily contributed to Scream Park.  When it was over, I happily answered questions about the making of the film, logistics, and introduced the attending cast and crew.  I'm very grateful to all those who turned out -- especially in cold, lousy weather -- to make our premiere memorable and enjoy the screening. 

Moving forward, we're spending the remainder of November to complete the film.  We're still cleaning up the footage, leveling out colors, and completing the small remainder of compositing.  As the director, I'm the biggest stickler of all for detail and want the film to be sparking for our DVD release and future screenings.  For all who contributed or pre-ordered the DVD, I want to make sure they get the best product possible. 

Lastly, more venues are interested in screening the film in the coming months.  As we book them, I'd like to put up a schedule on the website for anyone interested in attending a theatrical showing.

Buy Advance Tickets to the Scream Park Screening 10/31/2012

On Halloween night at 7pm, the lights will go down in the Movies at Meadville and Scream Park will be shown for the first time to an audience.

The screening fulfills my promise to bring the film back to the area it was filmed in and give the local crowd the first glimpse.

Showing the film ties in with Conneaut Lake Park's own Ghost Lake attraction, where the park gets the Halloween treatment.   The screening brings a culmination of 18 months of work and preparation, and it's going to be a great show.

The film is currently 95% completed, with some digital clean up, color correction, and audio mixing still remaining.  The film is still very much watchable, and I look forward to being part of the crowd and seeing it come alive on a big screen.  From here it will become just a matter of finishing up that remaining 5% and doing our best to get the film out there with whatever means necessary.  Definitely some exciting things on the horizon.

Tickets: You can buy advance tickets to the screening at ShowClix.

Date/Time: 10/31/2012 at 7PM Eastern

Location:

Meadville Movies
11155 Highline Drive
Meadville, PA 16335

There are only 130 seats available, so get your tickets now!

Happy Halloween!

Scream Park Production Update: Premiere Time!

Happy Halloween!  

It's the greatest month of the year and especially gorgeous here in Western Pennsylvania. 

We're at the end stages of Scream Park, finalizing audio mixing, foley sound F/X and putting the finishing touches on the footage.  We came out of the final cut needing some digital clean up but the footage looks great and from the few folks that have seen the rough cuts say it truly feels like an 80s horror film!  That's excellent, because that was the goal when embarking on this project!  

We have a small world premiere scheduled for Halloween night in Meadville, PA -- very close to Conneaut Amusement Park where we shot most of the film.  As part of the arrangement with the park, we promised they would get the world premiere and it's almost time!  

We're going to show the film at about 95% complete -- we'll still need some clean up and mixing on the footage afterwards.  But we expect the DVDs to press sometime mid-November to have them shipped out to all of our Kickstarter backers and folks that have pre-ordered the from this website! (Pre-order Scream Park)

We'll make an official announcement when all the Kickstarter items are ready to go and being shipped out, so you can watch your mailbox or front door step for a package from us.  

Thanks!
