    Christopher, just a very silly question: why not challenge for awards on prestigious short film festivals with this instead of direct launch on youtube? This is top quality filmmaking, Im sure Jim, Jarred and Red wouldnt mind this going on the Festival route? Is there anything against a supported film like this going for the big short festivals?

    Thanks so much Christopher for putting together the BTS posts. The film was is truly fantastic and the BTS info you pass on is very valuable.
    I also really loved seeing and reading all your posts on the ASC instagram feed a while ago.

    I would like to hear more about how the post was handled. Currently I edit my r3d files natively in Premiere Pro CC without proxies or conversion first. I'm curious to see how others are approaching post with their r3d files these days.

    This is really awesome, thanks for giving us such insight. Made some notes about your approach to certain scenes (specifically the 2xm18 shot into the sky behind the gas station at night for separation, really like that).

    Hoping I can make it to Cinegear to see this in a theater and maybe hear more about it.

    I vote for frame.io to start their own playback engine for presentation :)

    Hey Chris,

    Great piece. The tone was so perfect. When did you shoot this? We're prepping a movie shooting in the Salton Sea next winter to try and avoid those 101 degree days... And how did you find shooting in Indio? Did you interface with the municipalities? Were they helpful?

    Just fantastic work, Chris. Really a pleasure to watch and to read your thoughts on making it.

    I'm continually impressed by my Weapon Monstros, and your work only strengthens those feelings.
