Official Hiatus Announcement

October 4, 2009

Filming for Initiation will be taking an official hiatus till mid-March or mid-June 2010 due to educational and employment commitments of several cast members.

The creative team behind the production hopes that the support given will not wane in the months to follow, and promise to complete the film at the earliest possible opportunity.

This blog will still be updated as there are scenes which have been deemed possible to film during this period, and behind-the-scenes production work, such as editing existing footage, and sourcing for budget, music composers, etc, will still carry on.

Logging and transferring…

Hi guys!

Thought I might just wanna update since I’m currently logging and transferring the video clips from the weekend’s shoot on the Mac right now (I’m using my Windows laptop of course, to type this post).

On the subject of the weekend, I would like to personally thank Roy from Ski 360 Restaurant & Bar for allowing us to film at his outlet. It’s a beautiful place tucked away in the western corner of East Coast Lagoon and serves rather great-tasting Western food!

The past two weeks have been rather hectic for the production as a whole, as due to scheduling conflicts a lot of changes had to be made to the screenplay, which is currently being reworked to fit the new storyline. You heard it here first, new storyline which is bigger, better and more edgy.

The main focus of the film doesn’t change though, that bit about the blueprints, but the way it is going to be presented to the audience has seen significant changes.

Well, in the end it’s going to be better than what was originally planned. Not going to take another month to work on this because I’ve tied up all loose plot ends and tightened a lot of sections here and there.

That’s all I can reveal for now, and for those curious ones, this is basically what I’ve been staring at for the past three hours (since 9.30AM)

Ciao!
