Hey everyone,

Only three weeks left until Deadly Notes is released! I don't know about you, but we're excited. So excited, in fact, that we're giving you a whole new trailer! You can find it on the home page, on the new Trailers page, on YouTube, or right here.

What do you think? Let us know in the comments or on our Facebook page!

Get Involved!

Ever wanted to be involved in a film? You can be. Right now.

You see, people love supporting the independent film industry. Or, at least, saying they do. And with the bigger films, it's easy. Buy a ticket and you've shown your support.

But we're not charging for people to watch this film.

Yeah, supporting indie film by supporting Deadly Notes just got a lot harder. Or did it?

Actually, what just happened is it got free.

"Support indie film without paying a dime? Count me in!"

Thought so. Well, here's how:

- Share this wesbite with friends

- Show them the trailer

- Display the QR codes (previous post) on your website, blog, Facebook, Twitter, etc.

-You could even get creative: print one out and stick it on your car!

- Like the Facebook page.

- And the easiest way of all: just talk about it. Bring it up in conversations about new movies coming out next month. Let people know that Deadly Notes exists.

I don't expect anyone to do all of these (though, if you did, that would be cool). Just one will get the word out. And then you can say you supported an indie film, and that you were an integral part of our success.

Why help this film? Well, you're not just helping this film. Spreading the word helps everyone involved! We're not making any money, so we do it for the experience - and for our resumés. Spreading the word helps:

- Channon Ford (Tanya)

- Lance Broadway (Arthur)

- Mark Barreraz (Agent King)

- Colemar Nichols (Director of Photography)

- Marc Hall (Editor)

- Carl Clark (Composer)

- Katie Young (me!)

- And so many others.

Now look at that! When you post "Check out this short film -" on Twitter or Facebook, you help everyone I just listed. Doesn't that feel good? It does. doesn't it? And there - you just helped yourself. So spread the word!

Rough Cuts and QR Codes

Posted by Katie Young on September 24, 2011 at 4:10 AM Comments comments (37)

We've come a long way since the end of May when Deadly Notes was cast, and there's still a long way to go before the release date, October 31st! However, our editor Marc Hall sent me a rough cut of the entire film (minus the end credits) and it looks amazing. Of course there's still plenty to do, but I wanted to let you guys know that we're all working hard to get this film ready for Halloween, and that progress is being made!

On another note, do you know about QR codes? Have somewhere to put a QR code but nothing to put there? Want to help promote Deadly Notes? You're in luck! We have two QR codes that you can post on your website, blog, or really anywhere you want that point people directly to Deadly Notes:

This one links to the website...              ...and this one links directly to the trailer!

Put these anywhere and everywhere! What I love about QR codes is that they make people curious. What do those pixels mean? And so people pull out their phones, scan the code...and suddenly, they're watching the trailer! So please, help us promote by sharing these codes with friends, family, even complete strangers!

Also, don't forget to like our Facebook page!

An Editor and a Poster!

For various reasons, we've had to find another editor to take on post-production. I'm pleased to announce that Marc Hall has recently agreed to work on the project, and he says he can keep us on schedule! You can find some of Marc's previous work here.

Also, we now have a poster! Check it out:

Remember, Deadly Notes will be live on this website this Halloween! Get excited, tell your friends!
