9/8/05- BRAND NEW PROMO SHOT FOR THE CROW:
We'd love to hear from you after you've seen the
movie. There has been MUCH response about the storyline, which is just
the tip of the iceberg. The sequel THE CROW: PURGATORY II starts pre-production
this August. We are greatful for the support the genre fans have given.
3/10/06: EXCITING NEWS!
The 2nd draft script of THE CROW: PURGATORY II has been completed. The
sequel will contain ALOT OF ACTION! A new desciple named, PRIEST, will
be introduced as Raphael continues his hunt for Alexis. Lastly, this installment
will establish the spinoff by diving into the war between Angels and Demons.
Due to the ugly weather, production has been pushed until the rain stops;
for equipment sake. We will be shooting things out of sequence as well
as training for the short film in the meantime. Stay tuned folks!
After an extensive location hunt, we have found our warehouse to film
the last battle scene (Yippie!) . There have been a few script changes
including an appearance by Neil Gaimen's character, DEATH, from the Sandman
series during a dream sequence.
7/15/06: Update: We have completed 3 major optical FX tests which will be utilized in the
sequel. They're subtle, but effective. The working production for Purgatory
2 will be under the name, BAND DESSINÉE. On a humorous note: I
spent the last 2 months chasing neighborhood crows with a camera like
a sub-amateur wildlife photographer. It's hard running in the middle of
traffic pointing a DV Camera into the sky.
Maggie Galvin will not be reprising her role as Alexis. This will allow
us to explore the art of body jumping. An audition has been posted on
Craigslist for open readings in Berkeley, CA in mid Aufust. Lastly, ,
a new teaser poster has been uploaded HERE!
8/25/06: Update: Saturday - August 26th, we will be holding auditions for Alexis, Death, and bodyguards in Berkeley, CA. Will let you know how it turns out and Key roles will be announced soon, Check it out here. Also, we have confirmed production dates of 9/19-9/21 at a really nice warehouse in the Mission District of San Francisco. This is where the main fight sequences between Priest and Raphael will take place.
