Kickstarter: The Worst 30 Days of my Life February 19, 2016

  I mentioned in an earlier post¬†that I would write about our “lessons¬†learned” running our first Kickstarter campaign. Well, without further ado, here are the top 3 lessons Gin and I both agreed were the¬†best to share: Don’t. Don’t. Running a Kickstarter campaign is a LOT of work. The Campaign becomes your LIFE.¬†So make sure you have time for it over the next 30 days. Don’t plan anything! Nobody mentions just how wrapped up you get with checking your email,…

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…

4 or More: The Kickstarter. December 14, 2015

Let me start by saying that I am very proud of Gin and myself for not killing each other over the Kickstarter campaign. Spit was spat. Blood was everywhere. Lots of table flipping. ¬†So our typical Wednesday night spread out over the course of a few weeks. ¬†It was almost¬†as bad as the first time¬†we¬†played Exploding Kittens and nearly¬†ended our friendship.   But by George, I think we’ve got it!   We kept¬†hearing about how difficult it is to launch…
