Temple of Art Trailer!

By | Blog | No Comments

Hallo all and sundry supporters of the Temple of Art Empire! TEAM TEMPLE OF ART (Allan & Olga & Jason) have been insanely hard at work over the last few months, cutting together the first bits of footage which we previewed a week ago at San Diego Comic Con to pretty resounding enthusiasm. (Hurrah!)

Things we have done in the last few weeks:

  •  began shipping our first piles of rewards out to backers
  • had a crazy successful panel with David Mack, Barron Storey, Bill Sienkiewicz, Satine Phoenix, and your favorite Temple-of-Art-makers, Allan Amato & Olga Nunes
  •  created three original scores for two film vignettes & a trailer (thanks to Good Bully Collective resident composer, Jason Seigler)
  • edited, re-edited, re-re-edited and exported those vignettes and the trailer
  • AND premiered all that footage at Comic Con to over three hundred people

It’s been a bit bonkers with fourteen-hour days and working well past midnight for weeks at a time, but the amazing thing is? We wake up bright and early in the morning to go right back to it. It’s a strange and lucky thing when you get to work on a project that inspires and compels you to happily work on it basically non-stop.

We want to share the trailer with you, but first we want to ask you a tiny favor.

If you happen to be one of those humans that uses Facebook, would you mind liking our Temple of Art trailer and sharing it with your friends?

Here’s the link to our Facebook post about it: http://tinyurl.com/templeofart-fb

(And if you’ve noticed, that link ALSO trickily includes the trailer, if you wanted to watch it right now, and let us know what you think. 😀 )

We ALSO have two vignettes, one featuring the inimitable Kevin Smith & Jim Mahfood on REJECTION, and another featuring a much larger cast of the film on GRIT. You can check those out (and the trailer, if you’re not on Facebook) here : http://templeofart.net/film

We’re so grateful to the artists and everyone involved for being part of this giant art monster, and we hope you enjoy what we’ve all wrought together so far.

Huge love from the Temple of Art Team,
Allan, Olga, Jason
