This past week, after four straight days of shooting, we were able to complete the primary shooting schedule for the first four episodes of the web series Purgatory, USA.
The process of filming has been tough, but very rewarding. The young actors, Dorothea and Tiffany, are so enthused about the project and have been professional throughout. There were some struggles with lighting and sound in certain locations, but none of that is new for anyone who’s ever tried to put together a film.
I hope, in future episodes and Sonlight Pictures projects, that more professionals will be called to assist us in our efforts.
Beyond the large task of editing, sound mixing and soundtrack, there are some minor steps still outstanding. There are some minor shots that we need to pick-up in the next week or so. Plus, there are some interviews that I want to have with cast and crew for distribution before the release of the episodes.
On top of that we’re developing ways to make these as part of a themed discussion at local youth groups… for example, Episode One: Judgment Day, deals with being judgmental. We could use that episode as a starting point with youth groups to talk about being judgmental and how it impacts our lives and our faith.
One more thing… if you want to help us through prayer, please sign-up to be one of our Sonlight Pictures Angels. We pray for our Angels everyday and will let them know inside info on this and future projects.
