Our friends, colleagues, and family members are giving us really positive feedback about our new TILT teaser trailer.  It definitely feels good to hear good things about our work, but we decided to secretly film audience member reactions at the trailer at Flyway Film Festival to show you what people REALLY thought.  And these faces don’t lie…

Big thanks to our test subjects Bill Elverman, Sheri Candler, Jake Stetler, Gary King, Susie King, everyone else at the Flyway Film Fest Backer Party, and Rick Vaicius & Flyway Film Fest for putting their trust in us and debuting the trailer. What a fun night!

The journey of the TILT teaser trailer:

  • Sunday, September 26th, 3am: TILT production = wrapped
  • Monday, September 27th, 7am: Phil and Jeremy start transcoding, pro-res-ing, and sound syncing footage
  • Early Oct, stolen moments: Phil and Jeremy work their trailer magic; rough cut makes Jessica cry…
  • Friday, Oct 22nd, Sneaky O’Clock: Director Gary King finagles a peek at the TILT teaser trailer. (We’re still trying to figure out if we can bring official charges against him.)
  • Friday, Oct 22nd, PM: TILT teaser trailer officially unveiled at a special Flyway Film Festival event.
  • Sunday, Oct 24th, First Thing in the AM: A private link to the trailer is sent to our 223 amazing TILT Kickstarter backers.
  • Sunday, Oct 24th, 2 seconds after First Thing in the AM: The trailer is leaked to the whole world. Sweet.

And now it’s your turn:

The 9 Days of TILTness – Day 9

Posted: October 23, 2010 in Tilt

Finally, the final installment of The Nine Days of TILTness.  Stay tuned… the TILT teaser trailer is coming soon!

It’s Day 8 of the 9 Days of TILTness.  It’s Day 8!  It’s Day 8!  It’s Day 8!  It’s Day 8!

If you missed the 7th day of TILTness, catch up here.  If you’re all caught up, here’s the 8th…



It’s Day 7 of the 9 Days of TILTness, and there is lots to talk about, so hop right in!

If you missed the 6th day of TILTness, catch up here.  If you’re all caught up, here’s the 7th…


Well, two people guessed right on this one, so we had to go to the hat.  However, when picked out of the hat… both names came out.  So we’re going to send a One Eyed Pike Beer t-shirt to both of them.  And the winners are…. drum roll please….  Sherry “Cosmo” Cummings & Lucas McNelly!!  Hooray to them for coming up with the correct answer of 1.  I yelled on the set of TILT 1 time.  Here is the story…

We were trying to get a fairly complicated steadicam shot.  It was fairly complicated, because we don’t really have a steadicam, but were making do with what we had.  The shot starts in one room and goes down the hall and into the bedroom to see that someone is in the bathroom with the door closed.  So after trying this out a few times we finally got it perfect…. except… now the bathroom door is open.  WHY???!!!! The video below is a recreation of the events that then took place between myself and Julie.  Congratulations to Sherry and Lucas!!!

P.S. – We got the shot a couple tries later while I was sitting in the time out chair with a mouth full of Lifebuoy soap.

It’s Day 6 of the 9 Days of TILTness, and the TILT teaser trailer is one more step closer to playing at the Flyway Film Festival.

And yes, I assure you this is day 6… no matter what that crazy graphic at the beginning of the video says. On TILT production day 6 we celebrated a birthday – watch, and see whose it was!

If you missed the 5th day of TILTness, catch up here.  If you’re all caught up, here’s the 6th…

Here we are, half way through the 9 Days of TILTness and almost to the unveiling of the TILT teaser trailer at the Flyway Film Festival.

The other link of the day that I mention in the video is for Gregory Bayne’s movie, Person of Interest, and the cool POI t-shirt I am wearing in the video.  It’s a great film, check it out.

If you missed the 4th day of TILTness, catch up here.  If you’re all caught up, here’s the 5th…

Ready for the 6th day of TILTness? Then let’s go!

Well, hello 4th Day of TILTness, my review of the production of TILT, from my perspective.
