The Audition and Production of "Asphalt Canvas"

To all whom it concerns,

As you know, you all have responded to one of my many “unofficial” audition calls for my feature film, “Asphalt Canvas”. I am grateful for the response and enthusiasm, and you have endured my updates with patience. It is unfortunate that I have to write you all and explain my decision to delay until 2009/2010.

I am not a large company, nor am I wealthy. I do not seek outside funding for my films for a variety of reasons, most of which are personal. What that means to any production I undertake, is that as a starving artist, I have to weigh my finances carefully. Quite simply, life sometimes gets in the way. Aside from time, the funds are not there for this production in the New Year of 2008. I have confidence in the New Year for many other projects, and I look forward to beginning “Asphalt Canvas” in 2009.

This is true independent filmmaking. It is often on the fly, seat-of-your-pants and unpredictable. For some of you, this may be undesirable. I am told consistently by those thinking inside the box that I cannot think outside the box and be taken seriously, despite the cold hard fact that I have and continue to do so. I am aware that this may not be convenient to many of you, and I do understand. I do ask that you keep an open mind, and I hope that many of you remain interested. Next year, I will have developed the funds needed, the locations required and so the actual audition will take place; I hope to see most of you there.

I have spoken with many of you and I am looking forward to having the opportunity to work with you in the future. In fact, I do not wish to limit our work relationship to this feature; I have many current projects slated for 2008 in the form of short films and music videos. I have already called upon two of you for a short film project, and I would like the chance to work with as many of you as possible. Please feel free to contact me at any time, and I will keep you posted on any new projects.

I wish all of you luck in the New Year, and please stay tuned. You can always check my blog for the latest news, and I thank you all!
