With the mega-unexpected success of The Passion Of Muindi : Part Deux, I bring some news, some words in the typed-form, candy corn, scarecrows [Mike Marple], and hopefully no tangents on the fact that school has started and what's happened since then up until now.
Zack, myself, and the cast cannot thank all of you enough for the semi-good turnout for the Premiere. While there were plently of difficulties, when it smoothed over, everything went fine. People laughed hard, someone actually got up and told me they were going to pee themselves [Matthews Mike / Mike Matthews.] Of course, as expected, the basically-dramatic scenes were not taken seriously and thought to also be comedy, but that's alright. Don't take it as seriously as Ryan did.
The DVD will include Part Une and Part Deux, as well as special features pertaining to Part Deux. A still-being-done Making Of, Cast & Crew Commentary, Interviews, Cast Impressions, Full Outtake Reel, Random Footage during Principal Photography, and more.
The DVD will be available around Thanskgiving, and will be priced at $10, but is subject to change. Those of you who pre-ordered the DVDs will either recieve them in the mail or personally. Anyone interest in purchasing a DVD in Novemember may do so.
[Part Trois ("Trox")]
As we speak, I am still writing the screenplay for Mr. Trois. I have a lot of significant, randomly placed scenes done because I wanted to make sure I got them the way I want them on paper before losing any of it. I expect the script to be completed, maybe not 100%-revised and finalized by mid to late October. By the way this looks so far, Part Trois will end up being feature-length, somewhere around an hour and a half.
The cast is broadened, as well as settings, themes, and awesomity. And this will be the end of the trilogy, so expect some...endings.
[Casting For Part Trois]
The first day of Principal Photography is currently planned for the night of October 31st, Halloween night here in the U.S. I can tell you what will be happening in this scene, as it is not one of the ones I plan on keeping under wraps. (Note that I'll be keeping the very CAPS LOCK LAST scene a secret from even cast members. Only those filming, booming, and in the scene will know of it. Cast members will not receive that part of the script /\ ____ /\!)
Casting is open casting. Obviously the rolls already established (Muindi, Mattch, Grimace, Dirtbag, Assassin, Keebler, Snoop, and the minors [Grant's role has been significantly increased in this film]) are all already cast, unless someone dies or gets un-suaved. (Only Muindi could do that.)
However, there are a lot more parts that need to be cast this time around, minor and major. At this point in the script, the most important would be that of Mattch's Love Interest. So any babealicious babes can talk to me about this, as well as for any interest you may have.
Filming is non-consecutive (not every day, no Base [trailers,]) so we will notify you of when you will have a scene to be filmed about a week in advance, with time, place, and transportation methods.
[So What Are The Mega-Awesome Expectations Of This One Thar Matty?]
a) Filming will in the majority be done in downtown Buffalo, including parts of Delaware Park, Theatre District, The Buffalo Zoo, and recently added: Fuji Grill.
b) The premiere will take place at a private theatre/cinema near the Boulevard Mall. We are in the process of renting this for a day. There is a feature-size screen, as well as a stage, plenty of seating room, and refreshment bars.
c) Admission will be open to all of Buffalo, as this will definitely be a "Buffalo Independent Film." (As mentioned, the shoot locations.) Expect an article or two in The Buffalo News, The Amherst Bee, and The Buffalo News' NEXT paper.
Always remember, Life Is Delicious! Just cook it as good as an Iron Chef, mkay?
