On March 30th, there was quite a bit of excitement over the announcement of “Searching for Sonny” – the “first feature film shot entirely on a DSLR when a teaser was released. Today, they released 3 new mini-trailers for the movie. They also opened a new website SEARCHINGforSONNY.COM and a store so you can not only buy movie products but you can get credit in the final film.
We're very excited to announce that the director of this film, Andrew Disney, has agreed to answer questions you might have about the movie and the process in our planet5D forums. So please visit our forums now and chat directly with Andrew!
Not only that, but when I asked Andrew if there was any news about the progress, he replied:
“Yes, there are some exciting developments
– A third of the funds for the budget have been committed in the last two weeks.
– We have Dennis Bishop, producer of the pilot for the hit TV show Dexter, onboard now as a consulting producer
– We have a Film Credit and T-Shirt deal on our website. Â For $29.99 you get a limited edition T-Shirt and your name in the credits. If anyone wants to support indie cinema, here's one way to do it.
– Still planning to shoot Septemberish and we'll be starting a webseries next month: half dedicated to the characters before the film. The other half dedicated to tutorials on DSLR filmmaking and indie cinema tips.
Thanks again for all your support.
Keep up the great blog!”
Andrew and his team have also put up some additional documentation on the process.
