What a cast!


Just finished compiling images for each of our cast members for the raggedisle.com website redesign. What a wonderful mix of faces. Seeing them all together in my finder window gave me goosebumps! There is a ton of talent on display right there. We are lucky to have them inhabiting our island.

A lobsterman's X-Mas tree


Captain Paul, Eric, Dirty Bill and Mac pulled their traps and made a beautiful tree on Ragged Isle. Happy Holidays to all the people who work the sea and the ones back home who love them.

Our first press is out today!


Here's our very first news story on Ragged Isle. It comes courtesy of local indie film writer Dennis Perkins of the Portland Press Herald. We talked for about an hour and I had no idea how someone could turn that stuff into a story. Turns out Dennis is a pro and I had nothing to be worried about.

It's no mystery that an enormous effort by many folks who go unnamed in the article are the reason why Ragged Isle looks as good as it does and will deliver thrills and chill to our audience. Hopefully next time I get to talk more about all of them. For now though, enjoy!

PS, Dennis mentions that our first episode comes out at the end of January. It's actually more like the end of February.

Ragged Isle's first real press!

I had the pleasure to speak with Portland Press Herald columnist Dennis Perkins today for a bit about our little web series. He had seen our trailer and wanted to do a story about it to get the early word out there. Cool huh? I thought so. I was very VERY nervous to say the least. He was gentle though and I thank him so much for showing an interest this early on. I hope I represented us well. Honestly, I don't know if I said anything of any use but I did talk. I do remember talking. It was at least enough that he said he'd like to do a follow up interview when we are ready to unleash the beast. I know what you're thinking, when is it coming out in the paper? It was such a blur I can't recall when he said. No worries though. I've got an email in to him and when he reminds me, I'll update the blog accordingly.

off with your head: an open letter to the cast

Dear Ragged Cast:

I am working on some stuff for the ol' interwebs, and would like to add your preferred head shots to the site on the "CAST" page. I figured I would try asking on the blog first, since I know you all read it, every day. I have a few placeholders now, and we can try to pull screen grabs, but if you have a shot you'd really like to see up there, please send it along!

As of right now the head shots will be 200 pixels by 200 pixels. If that helps any of you.

Thanks!

The edit goes on...


So, how have you been? Great! Me? Well, I guess I can't complain. Been putting lots of my free time into the Ragged Isle edit. I've got a rough cut of the first 8 of 10 episodes in season one done. I'm making some sense of the 10th episode which is our season finale. After that's done, I'll be going back and tackling the 9th episode. When you see it all, hopefully you'll understand why that one has to be edited last. It's like our season really has two finale's. Two VERY different finale's. I've also had a chance to show some of the actors and crew a few scenes and have been very delighted with their responses. Even at this early stage, I can tell it's working and that feels good. It helps fuel me to finish this thing. Can't wait to get started on writing music. Maybe in a week or so...
