The Hit Squad: Crunch time!
So for the past few days I’ve been soldiering away even harder than normal, why? Because I want to get The Hit Squad finished!
What the hell is happening with The Hit Squad?
I’m currently undergoing a month and a half of ‘crunch time’, super intensive work to try and get production over. Those who know me know how hard I work on the movie daily, but I’ve given myself a deadline to get production finished. There are a few reasons for this: a) at the end of the crunch period it will be just over one year since production started, b) It finishes just before I have a week away for a family wedding c) it gives a much needed line in the sand to finish work on the movie.
Does this mean the movie will be released soon?
Not necessarily. There are loads of factors to a movies release. I want to plan it carefully and do it properly as I want to try and get it right first time. I’ve spent many years getting The Hit Squad off the ground and I don’t want to rush it out. I need to find a distributor, not just ANY distributor, the RIGHT distributor. Someone who values online as much as theatrical and DVD, someone who I can work with on getting the movie out in the right places to people want to see it. Between now and release I will be releasing some more sneaky looks at the movie though.
So, what’s next?
I will be online sporadically, to research the release. But probably mainly stressed and tired, so I apologise in advance 🙂
Can I help?
Yes! Please do! I can’t do this release on my own, after this crunch period I will be building up momentum for the movie, so will be looking for some people who want to get involved and help get it noticed. I will be posting out something more official later on, but in the meantime, if you wanna let me know of your interest, please email me chris AT ilovethehitsquad.com
Anything else to add?
Yes, actually. I want to say thank again for all the support that you’ve given the movie so far. It’s already been a life-changing experience and it isn’t even out yet!
