The Pieces Fall into Place

As pre-production continues it’s hard not to feel anxious. Anxious because things are going well, maybe too well!

We’re excited to have some great people jump aboard this crazy train. Jaclyn Geist, owner of local business The Black Market, has joined the crew and has donating five hundred dollars worth of clothing, shoes and accessories, as well as her time, to costume the lead characters in Wake the Witch. Ana Sterns has agreed to take on much of the grassroots maketing through the production. This is a huge addition to our humble staff, relieving the producers of what is sure to be a heavy load. Rose Staley has also joined the production as FX makeup artist, an essential for every horror film.

The quest for finacing has also begun. UE hopes to raise several thousand dollars to cover hard costs during production and post. Raising money is never easy and most creative types cringe at the thought. Wish us luck and we’ll keep you up to date on the financial front.

Casting begins this coming Saturday, August 16th in Omaha and next weekend the 23rd in Lincoln. We’ll let you know how it goes. If you’re interested in auditioning please see our Cast page.

More later!
