It looks like I won't be able to get the DVDs out as scheduled. I'm looking at $70 just for ink and cases, and I still need to figure out how much the cover art will cost to print out. However, I do have the cover art 99% completed. It's just the spine I need to finish, but that will depend on the type of cases I purchase. I'm leaning towards the slim cases which are half the thickness of regular cases. In any case, money is very thin right now, and I'd appreciate any donations that people can make no matter how small. Just shoot me off an e-mail and let me know what you're capapble of donating. Thank you! :-)

After coming up with a few dates for shooting the next couple of films, it looks like we may have to postpone the shoots until possibly spring. This is because Travis, one of the main actors in at least one of the films, is going to be in Vegas until early next year. This would, of course, place these films out of contention for next spring's fan film awards. However, I'm looking into the possibility of replacing Travis with another suitable actor. I'm just coming up blank with figuring out who would fit the part as well. I do have one person in mind, but I'm not quite sure if he'd fit the bill. More on this later.

In case you hadn't noticed, I made a few changes on the site the past couple of days (or nights, as it is in this case). The first obvious one is that the Luke & Leia site is up and being worked on. Of course, more will be added there once production starts. The other change is that I removed the Yoda's Treasure News link. I didn't want to start getting into having a seperate blog for every movie I make, so I decided that all news items will appear here rather than in each movie's individual site. The news items from Yoda's Treasure are now found by clicking on "Even OLDER archives" in the archives section on the right of this page.

My script for the next project is complete, and I'm ready to do some test filming in the coming weeks. I'm hoping to shoot the new film in September or October. No, I'm not going to give out too many details yet, but the working title (in case I decide to change it) is Luke and Leia, and it's probably not what you're expecting (unless you're one of the priviledged few who have seen my new script). ;-)
Yes, we're finally at the burning stage. I'm going to be working on the DVD label and insert artwork in the coming week. After that will be the printing process, and then we're ready to start shipping! If all goes well, I'm figuring people will have Yoda's Treasure DVDs in their hands by the end of the month.
