OHO - Post-Production Update

Happy February, everyone. 2016 is a distant memory. Okay, maybe not. But it is a memory. Now that the groundhog has seen his shadow and cursed us with six more weeks of winter, Tom Brady has cemented his legacy as the GOAT and sent most NFL fans cursing, and “Does he own a bathrobe?” has become a question by which we define all past and future American Presidents (Bill curses), it’s time for another update on One Hour Outcall. Briefly or otherwise, I’m hoping to keep you all posted as we progress towards having a completed film.

As I mentioned in the last update, we’ve screened a first rough-cut of the film. The creative brain trust was unanimous in feeling it was a tremendous start. I grew quite excited watching, as I realized, “Hey, this is a thing, this is coming together.” Our editor Sam Hook is working on the next cut now, as we move forward You can see from Sam’s apartment walls the roller-coaster map and index cards are shaping up the cut. We’re hoping to have that cut completed by month’s end. We’ll screen it again and that’s when we’ll start really diving down into the dirt, trying to shape it into the best movie it can be. Everyone’s pumped to keep the momentum moving on One Hour Outcall.

And this is where we need your help again. Many of you were tremendous in contributing during pre-production and principal photography to helping get One Hour Outcall into the can. Now that we’re into 2017, and have shaken off the post-2016 rust, we’re in post-production, we can see the finish line for a film we’ll be proud of, and I’m hoping you’ll be willing to asset us in reaching that finish line. I’m re-opening up our GoFundMe campaign, trying to raise $5,000 to help us complete the movie. Those dollars will go to:

-continued editing of the film, shaping it from the first cut to the final cut.

-sound design

-completing color correction, essential to establish the look that we want for the piece

-music, an underrated aspect of all movies

-preparing the marketing and publicity for the film, as we attempt to find One Hour Outcall an audience

If you’ve contributed already, know that I appreciate it, know that your help has gotten us this far, and please consider helping out just a bit more. If you haven’t contributed yet, please consider it, know that many people needed to see that One Hour Outcall was becoming a reality before they felt comfortable assisting us, and understand how grateful I’ll be. Please go over to our campaign page at and toss some change in the hat. We’re extremely close to getting there. Any amount would go a long way towards us getting this home.

Thanks for considering it.  Forget the groundhog, forget Tom Brady, forget that dude without a bathrobe. Talk to you soon.
