REEL: Auditions! April 21, 2018

Last weekend was a whirlwind of meetings and auditions. It was a really tough decision, but we chose our actors! Seriously, it was hard. We saw so many amazing people during the casting call, however, Gin and I are confident that we chose the right people for the part (and met others that we for sure want to work with on a future project). Thanks to our sponsors at ikan, we held auditions at a really beautiful high rise in…

REEL: Open Casting Call April 12, 2018

This weekend Gin and I will be holding our open casting call for Reel! This is one of my favorite steps in the process. It can be stressful because the weight of the film (who the audience sees, anyway) relies on finding the right person for the part, but oh man… when we find that one person who “gets it” everything clicks into place and it’s MAGIC. They bring in their own experiences and put a part of their soul…

REEL: New Partnership- Equipment Score! March 23, 2018

We have our first partnership! ikan, a Houston-based designer, manufacturer and distributor of pro film and video equipment is partnering with us to provide gear for the feature! Gin and I are very excited about this opportunity and we are extremely grateful for their enthusiasm and support for the project. Their equipment is going to be an invaluable asset and we are really excited to be working with them. Before speaking with ikan, I think we were just hoping to borrow…

REEL: Our First Feature Film! March 17, 2018

We’re making our first feature film- and that’s really cool! It’s also self-funded! Which is whatever. I’m just excited to be here. The script is pretty much done (though I’ve been saying that for months now), and the money is mostly saved. I am ready to get started, but I feel like someone pressed the slow mo button and is making me WAIT and BIDE MY TIME until it actually IS time to hit the ground running in June. This…

4 or More at Gen Con 2017! May 26, 2017

We are so excited to find out that 4 or More will be premiering at Gen Con 2017!  For those of you who don’t know, Gen Con is the largest gaming convention in North America. Their film festival highlights feature films, documentaries, and shorts that have gaming themes and genres that appeal to their attendees- so this is the PERFECT exposure for 4 or More as it allows us to reach a good chunk of our audience. Gin and I already had plans to…

Getting on Board Kickstarter and Interviews! April 3, 2017

After swearing off Kickstarter for good, we find ourselves here again, with 3 days left in our campaign 🙂 We must say, this one has gone much better and we are so grateful for the support we have been given. Getting On Board by Gin & Tonic Films Currently, we are on our way to St. Louis to interview another round of talented tabletop designers. Tonight, we’re filming a conversation between these creatives and then tomorrow we begin our indivdual…

Getting on Board March 14, 2017

We’re board gamers. Big ol’ tabletop lovin’ nerds. However, we weren’t always this way. In fact, neither one of us discovered our love of tabletop games until our mid to late 20’s when a co-worker insisted we play a round of Betrayal at the House on the Hill and Sentinels of the Multiverse (he also got a lot of us into karaoke, but that’s a story for another day). After that we were hooked. Game nights became a weekly thing. It brought us…

4 or More: THANK YOU!

4 or More: THANK YOU! January 20, 2016

The 4 or More Kickstarter campaign has come to a close and we are excited to announce that we are fully funded!  Words cannot describe how grateful we are feeling.  We received overwhelming support from friends, family, those we are just beginning to know, and even total strangers. Gin and I took the leap last summer to chase our dreams and focus on filmmaking full time. We wanted to have a legit film production company that worked with a budget and could pay…

Behind the Scenes of 4 or More: Arm Casting! January 12, 2016

SPOILER ALERT: We have a practical effect in our film.  I don’t know if this is REALLY a spoiler, but there it is.  It’s hard to find truly dedicated actors who are willing to have their arms literally chopped off (prima donnas, amirite?), so finding a special effects artist became a must. But in all seriousness, I am a huge, huge, HUGE fan of practical effects and make up.  I enjoy writing screenplays that push what Gin and I know how…

4 or More: An Update January 1, 2016

Hi Everyone! Gin and I made it to Houston!  We packed our bags, turned off the oven (I think), and packed up the cat to make the two day trek back to Texas. In true Gin and Tonic fashion, we hit the ground running and launched our Kickstarter shortly after our arrival. It’s off to a great start and we are confident that we will reach our goal!  Launching a campaign around the holidays has been interesting (it’s debatable if…
