Here are the projects that Hamster Wheel Productions have... er... in pre-production. It's relatively interesting but somewhat sad that I haven't even found the time to do half of it. Beyond the point of conception anyway.

The Hamster Show

The pilot for this show is almost completed, just putting the finishing touches to it (Okay, I'm still editing the stories. Go away.) and I'm gonna call the Operations Managers at KVOS tomorrow to set up a viewing date next week, or at least sometime to drop off the tape so that he could have a chance to view it. Fingers crossed, hoping that they'll fall in love with it and request that the stupid guy in the Karatae segment be strung up and shot. We have basic graphics for it, and we don't know what's in line for it at all. Low rent local show, or budding genius to have a program in the middle between Seattle and Vancouver B.C.? Time and wild speculation will tell.


We've got a cast, a crew lined up, an awesome director and a good script with partial nudity, why the hell else is it not off the ground yet? See above, plus Winter break. Love Kelsey, not her fault at all, just haven't found the perfect little location for our perfect little staged killing. I'm really looking forward to shooting this because I've had visual pre-conceptions of the shots, and it'll look sweeeeet. Cody's taking care of the other thing, the actor wrangling thing. I'm not that good with actors because I'm not comfortable being... I'm just a wiseass, it doesn't help me direct much. Anyway, therapy's for later.

Untitled Pyschic Girl Feature

No script, nary an outline. Just a lot of talk right now. Actually, we haven't actually talked about the script for a while. Haven't written it yet mostly because I haven't found the time. Secondary reason is that there are already too many movies based on similar premises, and I'm kinda afraid to venture there before being concious of what's out there. (i.e. need to run to the video store to watch "Carrie".)

Zombie Vampire Horror Short

A vanity project, also a fun one. Started off with just an action scene, but I had to get all retarded and create a backstory. No script yet, just ideas. Basically a vanity project because Cody, Ted, and I played "Hunter: The Reckoning" and thought we should be in the game to kill zombies. Budget wise, it could kick our butt.

Flicker Film Festival

Just ideas as well, and I think it's more so my wanting to do this than Cody. I just like comedy, and after being burnt at Projections, I'm itching to make fun of everyone and be forever ostracized from the local filmmaking community. Exile is fun! No really, it works out brilliantly, because if anyone at Projections gets offended, it'll just imply that that's how they perceive themselves. Guilty conscious kinda thing. But really, everyone at Projections was fine, I guess losing makes some people crazy. With Jealousy. And Spite. Plus we'll get to play with a lot of different genres, which will be cooler than hell. If it froze over.


We'll shoot people having sex if all else fails, finance us some money, and try the filmmaking thing all over again.
