BEHIND-THE-SCENES 2014 PART 1

Happy New Year everyone!

So 2014 proved to be another exciting and challenging year for us here at Displacement HQ. Between our efforts to raise more funding, shoot around work-for-hire jobs and other scheduling challenges, we actually managed to get over 95% of the movie in-the-can, were contacted by nearly a dozen interested distributors and international sales agents, and welcomed Golden Globe Winner Susan Blakely to our cast! Not a bad year all things considered.

And as we look ahead to finishing the film in 2015 (money and casting gods willing) here is the first of some exclusive video recaps to highlight what we’ve been up to since our hotel stage shoot. As Aza Allen says in the vid, “It’s Displacement. Awesome.” Enjoy!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from Displacement!
2014 Holiday Card M

As we approach the New Year, we are reminded of all the blessings 2014  brought us (a new behind-the-scenes video is coming soon recapping our filming adventures) and the excitement that is in store for 2015… not the  least of which will be finishing production on the film!  We can see the light at the end of the tunnel now, and it looks a whole lot like a movie projector!

In the meantime, we wish you the most wonderful Holiday Season and a very happy New Year!

All our Best,
Team Displacement

Fun On The Stage – Part 2

Check out our latest behind-the-scenes video as we continue to travel back in time to our stage shoot last December, when we wrapped the great Lou Richards and our hotel room scenes.  Part II of this two-part exclusive is right here.
Also you’ll be pleased to hear that we are already getting a lot of distributor interest in the film.  More than half a dozen distribution companies and international sales agents have contacted us recently interested in acquiring the rights and  requesting screenings!  Though the film is not quite ready for market yet, this is very encouraging news and we are opening dialogues with these companies.

Stay tuned for more exciting news soon as many things are cooking.

Enjoy the video!

A Look Back!

There is a lot that goes into the making of a movie.  Sure, we all know that.  But what does it really take?  We go see a movie on the silver screen and we see amazing performances, flawless editing, and are transformed into another world.  We don’t think about all the work that goes in behind-the-scenes.  There are fifteen-hour days, rain moving in, and the meticulous work that’s required to set up each shot.  We thought we would share some of the fun and hard work that our Displacement team has put in over the last year.  These are never-before seen shots.  Enjoy!

You just never know what can happen on a day of shooting.

Recently, we spent a day in Shadow Hills shooting Courtney Hope and welcoming Michael Zhang into the Displacement family.  We had a great day shooting at the Deckard house, with gorgeous background views that seemed like it was right off of a sound stage.  Our shoot was outside, and definitely not on a sound stage!  The dark looming clouds finally opened up and rain started to come down later in the day.  It was perfect timing, we were able to finish shooting inside and no one got too wet.  We all ran outside to enjoy the beautiful rainbow while it lasted.

Lucky Charms coming?  Stay tuned…

Malibu Beach Shoot June 25th

We had an amazing day shooting Displacement a couple weeks ago.  Crashing waves, jutting rocks and sunshine were the backdrop for our shoot at Malibu’s El Matador Beach.  

That said, we are even luckier to welcome Susan Blakely to our cast.  She is playing Cassie’s mother.  As you’ll see, we had a fun day shooting and invite you to take a look at some of the behind-the-scenes we captured.

HOTEL SET BUILD

Hi Friends!  Back in December, the Displacement team took over a sound stage in Inglewood for two weeks and we turned it into a hotel room.  We had a timelapse video camera set up that captured the entire set build in about one minute. Enjoy!

 

And to see how this turned out on film, you can watch the first 7 minutes of the movie on our website!  (featuring an amazing original music score by composer Gordy Haab (“Behind the Mask”, “Star Wars: The Old Republic”).  Check it out here:
