KEYS: KWerky Productions' new feature film project

I've been mentioning a "full-length feature film" on this blog for several months now. Earlier this week "Weird" Ed and I decided it was time to reveal what it is we are working on.

Today, December 22nd 2006, KWerky Productions is proud to announce that our next project is a feature-length movie entitled Keys.

Currently I am working on the first draft of the script. If all goes well, we hope to begin shooting sometime early in the summer of 2007, for release in early-mid 2008.

Obviously we don't want to give away too much at this point about what Keys is about. We can say that the title has more than one meaning in the context of the story. That this is going to be a film with a fairly definite moral, even though that will be left for the viewer to understand what that moral is. And that we think we may have hit on a pretty neat and original idea for a story.

Along with the name of the film, we are also announcing that its official website keysthemovie.com is now open. Admittedly there isn't much there at the moment, but that will change as the months progress.

We believe this is going to be a really wonderful project to work on. This is going to be a substantially more ambitious film than Forcery was. When we were producing that movie, we were completely "babes in the woods" when it came to filmmaking. But we learned a lot from the experience. We've had time to study what we did right, what we did wrong, and the art of filmmaking in far greater depth than we've been able to before. We've made a few shorter films since then. We're now confident that we are ready to try something a little more bold. And we are looking forward to working with some of the same terrific people that were part of our time on Forcery... as well as finding some new faces to share the experience with.

We will also be attempting something with Keys that, to the best of our knowledge, has only been done once or twice before. It's something a bit revolutionary. For a lot of reasons, we are really looking forward to pulling this off.

And if I say any more, I'm most likely going to let something slip that I probably need to keep under wraps for the time being. But anyway, there you have it: Keys is our next film project, it's a full-length movie, and we will be completely pulling out the stops on this one. There's one scene in particular that I just can't wait to shoot!

Keep an eye on the official Keys website in the next few months as this project really gets cranked up.

Good luck with the movie. I looked forward to seeing it. I'll also be looking out for Knight Vision Media. Sounds like you're going to have a busy but interesting 2007.
