First off, we’d like to sincerely thank those who supported us with the Indie Go-Go campaign for the Spring 2013 Competitions. We are touched by your generosity.
We have great news! We’re an official selection for the WorldCon–71st Anniversary (LoneStarCon3) Film Festival!
PLEASE NOTE: While the general Science Fiction convention will be located at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, the FILM FESTIVAL will be located at the nearby Marriott Rivercenter. Our film will be shown once on Friday, August 30th at 8:00pm-10:00pm in Room 13-14. We hope to see you there! Please share with your Texan friends!
We have two Houston events coming up in Summer: Comicpolooza and ApolloCon. Both will have different panelists and subjects.
In this post, we will highlight what we’re doing at Comicpolooza–the largest sci-fi convention in Houston, Texas.
I am honored that we’re going to be at so many conventions. I have to give special thanks to Comicpolooza which has streamlined the convention process for us.
Unlike ApolloCon which will be an intimate panel with the actors, the Comicpolooza panel gives a chance for techies to go crazy!
HERE is the link for the updated schedule of events. Once we finish post-production and the indy film circuit begins, this page will be constantly updated.
So what are we up to at Comicpolooza?
“How to Film on a Budget”
The cast/crew of Frankenstein’s Monster from First Step Cinematics, LLC will take a practical look at filming on a budget for the 21st century. Attendees will be introduced to the basics of microbudget film project planning, logistics, some DIY tech tools ideas our crew used, audio needs, makeup, sets, props, and how to adapt a DSLR camera for filming. Q&A for cast and crew after talk. If you were ever afraid to film, but don’t know where to start, this is the place to be.
Hi everyone! Judith B. Shields here. I just wanted to share some moments from the shoot.
Here we have a few moments from when Victor Frankenstein returns home and also a shot of young William Frankenstein playing in a field.
We still have 14 scenes left to shoot in March. However, we’ve started the post-production process for the other scenes. Matt G. is editing video first then the audio team will tackle the project. Even though is seems a little quiet here on the blog–it isn’t quiet in the production. The lead team has been meeting about two nights a week reviewing the dailies. We’re very excited about what we’re building. I cannot wait to share with all of you Frankenstein’s Monster. Once we hit the independent film circuit, I’ll keep this blog updated as we know when we’ll be shown at a city near you. Thank you again for your support!

Hi, Judith B. Shields here. I just wanted to give a quick update. We’ve been in the middle of filming for the last two weeks and we have one week to go. I am amazed at the progress we’ve made. Thank you everyone for your support.
So what’s new? We’re in the Galveston Daily News today–sixth page, straight off of the press in the “county” section.
Thank you Little Green Schoolhouse for allowing us to shoot at your location!
