‘Four Thousand Wings’

I originally had planned to post this last month, but with everything else going on in the world, it didn’t seem appropriate at the time. My reasoning for a June post on this was because June 5 marked five years since filming began on the short film Four Thousand Wings.

The trailer has been up since Feb. 3, 2016, and the short has been available on Amazon Prime since late April 2017. But now it’s on YouTube, so you don’t even need an Amazon account to view it.

The film is just shy of 10 minutes. I hope you enjoy it.

A little bit of background:

This was the first time I was the director of a film. (On the Foolish Henry Films short City Federal, I shared directing duties with my friend Rick Gardner, but I wasn’t the sole director.)

It was also the first time I had to handle editing, color correction/grading, sound design/foley, score… basically all post-production. You can probably tell it was my first time doing all of that stuff, but hey, you gotta start somewhere, right? It was definitely a learning experience, but it was fun.

Other than the very last scene, the whole production was handled by four people: Adam Davila, Nick Patterson (RIP), Eric Hoehn, and myself.

We filmed it over the weekend at the historic St. James Hotel in Selma. Here’s a blog post I wrote after that weekend with our schedule and some behind-the-scenes pics.

The story is based on a dream I had. It’s also the first official Terrible Master Films production.

Thanks for watching/reading.
