Just a Typical Day on a Film Set

If you ever have a chance to work on a film set I suggest you take it. Even if it’s just running errands, carrying gear or making coffee, there’s a good chance your time spent on set will be an experience you won’t soon forget.

As movie goers we see the  finished product – the results from months of writing, rewriting, casting, filming, editing and so on. But, it’s the stuff we don’t see that makes it so memorable for the cast and crew. The camaraderie built from spending so much time together trying to bring the filmmaker’s vision to life creates new and lasting friendships.

We have a great cast and crew because this video shows what it’s like all the time on the set of The Amygdala Project.

I hope you enjoyed our video. Please take a moment to click this link and consider helping us make sure we can finish shooting the series. Thank you.

Say Hello to my Little Friend

Me, Colin and Stephen 01
On the set of Kenn Crawford’s AMYGDALA

Last week we shot for 4 days so I didn’t have a chance to update the site, but I had to share one of our Behind-The-Scenes pictures from our shoot yesterday (Saturday, Aug. 6th) that features seven-foot-one Colin Barrie and Stephen McGean (Trailer Park Boys, Frontier) as we go over their scene in AMYGDALA.

We all had a blast during the shoot as jokes and stories were shared, and we got a lot of work done.  I should have a trailer ready in a few days but in the meantime please consider visiting our campaign page.

The crowd funding is off to a good start with just over 15% of our budget raised, but we still have a ways to go yet.

With the money we raised so far I purchased some much need equipment upgrades (a shoulder rig and viewfinder for steadier shots, some props etc.) as well as the supplies we needed for craft services to keep the cast and crew fed and hydrated during the hot summer days, but we still have SIX MORE EPISODES to shoot!

We’re asking you to please consider contributing to help us purchase better equipment and to make sure I can continue to feed the cast and crew.

Everyone that is working on the project is doing so on a volunteer basis because they believe in the project and want to see it get made… but we need your help!

No amount is too small – it all adds up and it all starts with you! All we ask is that you click HERE and read up on who’s involved and what we’re doing, and then decide if you want to help out by contributing to the web series.

We have some cool perks for contributors!

On behalf of the cast & crew of Amygdala, Thank You for your contribution.
