Thank you to everyone who liked, commented, shared and donated to our on-going Kickstarter campaign. What an amazing month since initiating our fundraiser back in the first week of August, to having such positive feedback and interest in the community!
What started as a small, traumatic moment between Zack and his Mother Michi, has evolved with the help of amazing cast and crew into a project ready for refinement. We are all extremely excited for what lies ahead for ‘Balllistic’ and look forward to keeping you posted as we finish off post-production and enter the film market!
Here’s a special video produced by Writer & Director, Zack Harris.
P.S. We are not to blame for the EMA’s latest false alarms, but had a good laugh at the messages to our team poking at the idea of playing it off as possible promotion. Thankfully this was not as intimidating as the original ballistic false alarm!
What an amazing day. Not only did our local community turn-up in numbers, but the staging on a cleared street was absolutely perfect.
Shooting on Leahi Avenue, this location was the pinnacle of gorgeous, iconic Hawaii with such an intimate view of Diamond Head overlooking the chaos on ground-level. Aside from our large crew of flagmen and security, it was such a joy assembling background as both evacuees and policemen. Not to mention getting our red Mustang back.
Today was one of the most critical scenes for the entire film. There was truly so much to cover in our limited time in the residential neighborhood including:
• Staging evacuated cars
• Special effects make-up
• Directing background
• Intermittent Traffic Control
• Parking and base camp security
• Smoke machine effects
A necessary MAHALO must be made for the support from our local City and County and our local community, who made all of this possible.
Aloha Friends, Family & Film Community,
I am beyond grateful to announce as of tonight we have achieved the $20,000 needed to fund this film! It took 99 backers, and came down to the final evening, but we did it. This project has been so humbling from concept until our current post-production and I truly have to thank the amazing team that has brought this story this far.
Mahalo for everyone’s support!
Our third day of shoot completely revolves around the Watanabe household, introducing us finally to our female lead Michi Watanabe (Una Wilding) and supporting Jaz Watanabe (Rylee Kamahele). It’s always so important to have an amazing team, especially when trying to set dress an entire house – did I mention we stuck to extremely long takes in continuous POV?
Here’s a collection of behind-the-scenes shots giving you a taste of the work happening outside of frame. The key to success? A ton of coffee and an effective, passionate team.
