“From The Shadows” art print by Russ Moore!

We’re getting into the home stretch prior to our planned shoot dates for Novos, and in the print series. Unfortunately David O’Daniel had to be replaced in the print lineup. Instead, artist Russ Moore created this incredible print, titled “From The Shadows”. It’s a 24″ x 18″ 5-color screenprint, edition of 80, signed and numbered by the artist. It will go up for sale on the Novos Store today, August 15th, at 11am PST for $30.

Check out below the jump for a detail shot. These prints look fantastic in person.

Novos filming delayed

First, I want to apologize for the gap in communication. I wanted to have everything as certain as possible before announcing this.

Filming for Novos has been delayed until next summer. At the end of August the crew and I were all ready to shoot, but unfortunately our main costumer (whose name was never published on this site — i.e. not Travis Boatright, who is marvelous) failed to deliver the main-character’s costume. It was a big fiasco. The producers and I attempted to find a new costumer, and managed to get in contact with some very talented professionals, but the timing wasn’t with us. As those familiar with the Pacific Northwest know, once the weather changes in the fall you rarely see the sun again for a while. I made the call to push production back rather than sacrifice the quality of the film. Between now and next summer I’ll be working with the visual effects team to produce as much of the CGI work as possible. In the end, I’m confident the film will emerge from this setback and be a better film for it.

As for the print series — that will go ahead as planned. I’m working with the artists on each of their prints. My goal is to try to have all of them finished by January, then release them staggered through spring. Given the delays with several previous prints, I’ll now be sticking to a policy of only revealing prints once I have them in-hand. But rest assured that all prints are still going to be made, and within a reasonable timeframe. I’ve even managed to get some new artists interested in creating prints for the series, with at least one fantastic artist committed and several in-talks.

If anyone has any questions, about either the film or the print series, I encourage you to contact me. The film marches on, and there’ll be some cool new updates soon!

Welcome to the Novos film blog!

Hey everyone, welcome to the blog for the short film Novos. This site will serve as the hub for updates on the film’s fundraising and various aspects of pre-production. We’ll eventually create a separately hosted, more professional general site for the film, but we’ll continue to use this blog to give more detailed updates. For now, take a look at The Pitch and The Plan, and please consider donating — it’s the only way we’ll ever reach our fundraising goals!
