I proudly present the first of the Alison in Wonderland production diaries, an eyeopening glance into the world of Gen-Y Films with the film's pre-production process. As you can see, I've been working hard on the props, blocking the shots and getting things ready in time for shooting. I just posted casting calls for the movie last week and am rooting through applicants, though I seem to getting some cold feet here and there after reading the script. I did a few auditions on Saturday after a jaunt to the Brattle to see Monster Zero and the rare AIP print of Destroy All Monsters on the big screen.
And finally posted is some exclusive footage from the Black Sunshine: Conversations with T.F. Mou premiere including my pre-film speech and some footage of T.F. Mou in attendance. Enjoy.

Some casting news: I have found a Mad Hatter in the form of one Jacob Schwartz, who impressed me with his understanding of the role and resemblance to my mental image of the character. Like Dave Luce before him, I think he'll take this where it needs to go. I am going to post casting callls for the other roles in the film in about a week.
And as for Black Sunshine: Conversations with T.F Mou's future, I am at work on a website update with a nice DivX copy of the uncut version available for download. For the final edit, I am strongly considering aiming the film somewhat at the Chinese market as well and recording or having someone record Mandarin and maybe Cantonese versions of the narration track as well as having the whole interview translated into Chinese subtitles. I will be ironing out the loose ends of this probably after I finish the rough edit of Alison.
