In this latest installment of the S&A Filmmaker Diary Series, writer/director Matthew Cherry continues to enlighten with all his pre-SXSW Film Festival premiere peaks and valleys, with regards to his feature film debut The Last Fall; and by the way, he still needs to funds to complete his Kickstarter campaign in order to cover SXSW trip expenses and post-production costs. As of this posting, he's about 78% funded, needing another roughly $4,000 to reach the campaign goal of $15,000. So, if you haven't chipped in, you've got just under 7 days to do so and help a brotha out by clicking HERE!

Here's the latest in our still ongoing filmmaker diary series with The Last Fall writer/director Matthew Cherry. Last time we posted an entry was in November of last year, when Cherry was seeking distribution for the film. You should know by now that the The Last Fall was accepted to the line-up of the SXSW Film Festival next month, an event Tambay and I will be covering.

It's been a couple of weeks since the last chronicle. Things have been nicely hectic around Double7 as we were finishing a campaign featuring the Porsche 911 GTS Cabriolet (awesome car!) and editing Queen Hussy Episode 2, "But, We're Neighbors".

We just dropped our first "Anatomy of a Webseries" for Queen Hussy, Episode 1. Conversation about the process is always valuable and in this video you'll hear from actress Jenn Pinto, cinematographer Antonio Cisneros, production designer Thomas Michael Ferguson, as well as yours truly about the process of directing the piece.

Last Sunday we premiered the first episode of Queen Hussy, kicking off the 50,000 View Challenge. It's our first foray into the space so there's a lot of daily learning, but we're happy thus far with the views we've compiled. There are a few special videos being cut right now, so once those are off the chopping block I'll drop 'em here in the 'ole Chronicles. In the meantime, I'm going to talk about the week that was...and what's in store for the coming weeks.
