Movie Producer: Do You Have What it Takes?…
C’mon folks – let’s pick up...Read More
Staying True to the Motto: “Helfen*Wehren*Heilen”…..
Thanks for all for the great response to the last post!!! Edwin H Bravo is still flying high to be a part of Harbinger Down, we’re terrifically proud and happy for him as – truth be told – there’s not a finer actor around anywhere. Edwin’s solid mettle comes from his excellent training with a strong emphasis on “The Classics”, and by this we mean Shakespeare. Both Edwin H Bravo & Robert E Wilhelm are veteran Shakespearian actors, & if you can do Shakespeare well, everything else is just cake. As an actor, doing Shakespeare teaches you a lot, as there’s no “dramatic pause” to be taken while performing the material. Quite the contrary, taking dramatic pauses while doing Shakespeare will kill it completely. Shakespeare is done all on the word; you must keep it going – “trippingly off the tongue” as William Shakespeare himself directed. We’ll keep you updated on the progress of Harbinger Down as it unfolds. Keep an eye here and you’ll get the inside baseball.
BREAKING!!!: Charity/Charities To Be Involved with THE MARSCHER LORDS:Brotherhood or Death….
As mentioned in the previous post, we’re in discussions now with several charitable groups about making them the beneficiaries of THE MARSCHER LORDS:Brotherhood or Death. As this production’s tone is very much an uplifting one, and one that is all about helping people out, so it just seems a natural course to take. We’re anxious to spread good deeds around, after all Chivalric Orders were formed expressly for this purpose (remember the Teutonic Knights Motto: ” Helfen * Wehren * Heilen* – “Help*Defend*Heal). The specific charities have not been finalized as yet, but we expect to soon. Working that out now. It may be several charities as opposed to just one (spreading the cheer!). But stay tuned. More on this to come.
Witness the continued success of Lone Survivor, $78.3 million (as of 1/21/14). Again, these types of “Brotherhood” pictures do well. And again, remember that this project will be used as a trailer to trigger investment for a full-length feature film, of which there may be several. We’ve really stumbled onto something here as far as film franchises go. Not only is THE MARSCHER LORDS:Brotherhood or Death ripe for franchising, but it is based in actual history as well. Try finding that in your average Hollywood franchise. We can build something that can really last, be inspiring, and stand as something of quality. That’s what we’re all about here: building a library of entertainment that (God willing) will stand the test of time and repeated viewings. Think about it, are there really that many current films released that you’d want to watch over & over again? There are always exceptions of course, but – to our eyes – a film that stands up well over time is one that weathers repeated viewing, i.e. there’s always something either “new” about it or it gives you such a good feeling that you want to see it more than once. The latter is really what we’re after with the production slate. By keeping the stories uplifting, maybe in light of our rather dark times at present we can offer people a little escapism. Isn’t that what entertainment is about?
