Hi Everyone and a BIG WELCOME to the new and improved NDstrong website. We have a few new touches we have added, such as the Events Calendar which will be full starting after the new year and the new Members Page. You can sign up to be a FULL MEMBER, which adds you to the directory that we have built for easy searching on all aspects of film making in ND or you can just be a SUPPORTING MEMBER which means you will receive our newsletter and updates but your information isn’t added to the directory. We know we have some people who want to support us but honestly don’t want to be a part of the film making process, and we understand that.
We are thrilled to share with you a few things that we have coming up in the future both here on the blog side of life and in the film creating world of NDstrong.
First off we want to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who came and supported us at the premiere of ‘Sins of the Father-Heads or Tails‘ that was a great night, we were blown away by the support that we received from the community!
But you might be asking yourself “Well that is nice but what is next??”. We will tell you, or at least hint at it a bit. 😉 We have finished the script for the second installment of Sins of the Father and will be shooting it in the spring of 2016. Making movies, even short films, isn’t as easy as you might think and we learned that the hard way this past spring with our first one. You have to learn and make mistakes in order to grow and boy did we! Nothing too major but enough to say “Well we won’t be doing it that way again”. So keep your eyes pealed for all Sins of the Father II news to be coming your way.
As for the blog we are going to be starting a couple of small series to get both you excited about movies (the real heart of them) and us into a creative spirit. Things to keep a watch for are Classic Movie month coming your way in December, where we watch and discuss classic movies. I am going to be trying to find some sort of Classic Movie wheel, spinning it and grabbing a couple of movies a week to be watched. What is better than a good 1950’s horror film, or a love story starring Cary Grant (I can’t think of anything better personally). Followed by some showcasing of directors, actors and people who make the film world go ’round that you need to keep an eye on, some are going to have already made a splash in the world of film making and others will be people that we can’t wait to see what they do with their talent.
Are you looking to learn more about movie making, what goes on behind the scenes and all the magic that goes into it? Well stay tuned as you will be able to get a back stage pass directly from us talking all about just that. We will be showing pieces of the pre-production for Sins of the Father II, behind the scenes while on set and much more. If you have HBO/HBO-GO and want to see what it is like to be on a big Hollywood set then we definitely recommend checking out the series Project GreenLight with Ben Affleck and Matt Damon as the main producers and reason for the show. (We all love the show, it is a great behind the scenes look).
**This was in no way promoted by HBO (It would be cool if it was but it wasn’t) we are just fans of the show.
Let us know in the comments below or on our Facebook page anything that you would like to see happen with the NDstrong website or if you have topics that you would like us to discuss. We are here to build a community of artists!!
