“Why the sigh, Steve?” you must surely be asking. “Did you experience orgasm a moment ago?”
Yes, as a matter of fact I did. Figuratively speaking, that is — earlier today Neon Reel Entertainment wrapped filming on The Interrogation of the Downsville Deucer. But for a few close-ups we have to pick-up in the next week or so, this baby is now in the capable hands of our director/editor Matt Matzen, who is probably working his magic on our footage even as we speak.
(Or eating. He seemed pretty hungry when I left.)
Rob and Juan did terrific work in their respective roles, and I think I didn’t do too terribly, either. I can’t wait to see how it all looks once Matt has cut it together — yes, he shot it, directed it, and will now edit it into its final form. He does it all! He’s like Robert Rodriguez! Only not an adulterer.
He’s like Steven Soderbergh!
(Unless Soderbergh also fucked around on his wife — I’m not sure of the facts on that.)
Whatever! Possible infidelities of big-time directors notwithstanding, The Interrogation of the Downsville Deucer was a blast to write and to film, and hopefully it will be a blast for all of you to watch, as well. Check in at www.neonreel.com periodically over the next few weeks for updates on this, and our future projects.
Oh! And another thing. Since filming is done, I’ve shaved my mustache. So it’s a double orgasm! Figuratively.
