Hey Cado fans everywhere,
While looking at all the wonderful film blogs, I realized I forgot to write mine last week! Oops, safe to say we were absolutely SWAMPED with editing, reshooting, and making special effects. (THANKS RORY!) Seriously that kid is amazing.
I would like to start out by saying how much I appreciate this crew. Everyone worked their butts off! All last week, and up until Tuesday, April 30th (due date), the Avocado crew was hard at work tryna finish up a great film–with the occasional chipotle break! Every time we watched a clip, I thought back to when we shot that scene, and then ahead to where we are now. It is amazing to see the transformation of a crew and the acting when the final product is created. When the movie was in the rough cut, it was actually 34 minutes. Where were we going to cut all of four minutes you ask? Well, Mr. Alan had no problem whatsoever cutting clips, that’s for sure. However, when it came down to the nitty-gritty, we were able to put back in some really funny moments.
I would really like to thank Brian Hazerjian, Jimmy Martin, Caleb Cofsky (who is also Cary Greenwright) and Chris Nee for stepping up for our movie when we needed some music. We couldn’t have done it without them, and like they always say: music can really make a movie. I believe Alby really exceeded all expectations and we really pulled it off! Its safe to say that when I watched the final movie, I had zero regrets.
In the meantime during film class, (while there isn’t anyone yelling, “Go change!” or “Get the camera card!” or “Are you working off the card?” and running around like maniacs) we are making our trailer and blooper reel. So get ready for that, peeps.
Alby premiers Tuesday May 14th, at 7:00pm. BE THERE OR BE A SQUISHED AVOCADO.
Gracias mis amigos,
Ashley Waldron 🙂
Avocado Fact of the Day: The avocado is also called an Alligator Pear because of its pear-like shape and green skin. (That’s right folks. Don’t mess with us, or we will chomp your head off! KIDDING.)
