A bit of news to see what’s been going on in the land of Rebels. The gang is currently preparing for the next CFC contest, beginning in less than a week, reaching out to contacts and getting ready to shoot! New hardware is on the way as we prepare some new post-workflow stations. Below, you can see what Chase been working on lately, as an editor, camera operator, DIT and more. Stay tuned and enjoy!
A quick update on the current ongoings of Indie Rebels. We are preparing to shoot a few shorts for a number of different festivals and contests coming up soon. We’re also planning and writing the second season of Lovecraftian in conjunction with the first so that we can stack up all those callbacks nice and easy in the production process. How’s that for thinking ahead? Our team is tirelessly working on a number of projects at the moment, both personal and professional, and we hope to update you guys soon with even more fun facts! We’ve even got some things in the works to help our fellow filmmakers in the future….
After a long and hot Sunday filled with sunburn, sand, and sexual innuendo, a successful day of filmmaking has been completed. With Indie Rebels providing gear and support for the currently filming short “How Did I Get In This Field” by writer and director Rob Morton, we are celebrating some gorgeous footage shot on our own RED Scarlet Dragon #65, Ruby. With some beautiful Ronin tracking shots added to the mix, we are looking forward to the completion of this film, and the remaining shoot day in the coming weeks.
Also news of note, we have recently completed our first script competition hosted by Rob P. of Dead Eye Films, and while the field was small for the inaugural competition, the submissions were well-received and we are happy to announce more competitions in the future, so stay tuned!
So we’ve been quiet recently, but there’s still plenty going on. We’re constantly tweaking the site, based on feedback and flow, so if you notice some pages move or go missing, don’t worry. The content will find its way out one way or another.
We’ll also be adding new content and pages in the near future. Skip, one of our team members, will have his page linked with the other team members shortly, though you can check it out if you follow the pattern of the other team members. We’ll also be looking to add our gear page, and more content-focused work pages soon.
The team has taken a small break recently as members have gone on vacation, lost phones, changed schedules and more, but now everything is back to the grind as new shorts, episodes, and even features are being written, commercials being shot, and previous shorts being edited. A new cut of The Waiting Game is coming up very soon, as well as a new, shorter version of Hotline that doesn’t conform to CFC festival requirements. Good news all around!
So a bit of news, we’ve had an idea rolling around in our heads for a while, and a few months ago we went out to shoot some test footage. You know, just to get a bearing on our current resources. Well this week there was another full moon, and since we’ve received our upgraded RED Dragon sensor, we figured we’d get back out and test its low light sensitivity a bit in a real world scenario.
Basically, two guys, minimal resources.
Decided to do the barest minimum of a teaser. So for anyone interested, check out our camera test-slash-teaser for the currently in pre-production web series, Lovecraftian.
So the Indie Rebels film Hotline made the Collaboration Filmmakers Challenge final screening, congrats to all involved! Playing this Friday night, 7pm, at the Harmony Gold theater in Los Angeles, CA, we look forward to seeing all the films at the competition.
Also of note, our very own Rob Peters was nominated for Best Dramatic Acting for our friend Joel Lopez’s film Beyone You and Me.
This weekend we shot another short film, THE WAITING GAME, written and directed by Rob Peters, with cinematography by Chase Wrenn. This film had the support of East Coast Orphans members Rose Leisner, Corey Zetterberg, Ian Hensley, and Carrie Moore. Check out a couple of low res screenshots from the shoot!
