In July we made the first 25 minutes of the film available to view during our failed Kickstarter run. During that time, and after, I received some great and challenging feedback from many folks. Some of it was communicated in ways that I had to process and not take personally, but that’s just part of growing up I guess (I’m only turning 28 this year – you’re not an adult until 60, right?).
As this has been a very public journey from the get go, why stop now? If you’ve seen the first 25 minutes and want to see what I’m thinking about the film’s first act as we move forward, I invite you to take a look.

As I said in the video, we’re aiming to shoot our first official preview scene in November. We have our location and our actors, but we’d also like to get help from someone in the Boise, Idaho area that might have access to a camera such as the RED ONE or the Sony FS100. While DSLRs are great for digital cinema pertaining to the web and even HDTVs, they exhibit artifacts that could be problematic for the big screen — and I want us to treat this preview scene as a piece of the finished film. It may very well end up being just that!
Being that we aren’t a huge studio with tons of money (we’re asking you all for help with that after all), we can’t really have the luxury of keeping our stuff hidden. So if you’d like a sneak peak at what the preview scene will entail, look no further: here’s the script for Scene 66 from MARK OF THE VEIL (v4.2)!
And of course, visit our fundraiser, contribute and share!
