To start things off we just want to apologize for the lack of updates here in the blog. The production process for Poetic has kept us extremely busy so while we have been updating our Facebook page along the way, the blog has slowed down considerably. We hope to get things back to a regular Sunday update again and are using this blog to catch everyone up, as well as announce some very exciting new information.
So with that said.... let's get to it, shall we?
Raymond Did It ...does that ring a bell?
In February 2011, an indie horror filmed entitled Raymond Did It changed the way the Midwest looked at independent filmmaking.
Raymond did premiered in Rockford, Illinois on a cold winter Friday night to a sold out audience. A temendous positive response, as well as more showings around the midwest, not to mention Los Angeles and New York, all led to one thing ...Raymond Did It garnering distribution.
The man behind the astounding success? Rockford filmmaker Travis Legge.
By now, mostly everyone who is reading this already knows the success of Raymond Did It, as well as prrobably already knows Travis himself. He's a popular guy. But there is one thing you don't know ....and we're about to tell you.
Travis Legge has officially joined the production of Matthew Cichella's Poetic!
Travis will be lending his support and talents in many different ways. First and foremost, he's coming on board as an Executive producer, helping oversee the entire production from start to finish, but he'll also be lending his talents in a much more prominent way.
Remember those bad ass kill scenes in Raymond Did It? Yeah, you know ones. Five words: Curtain rod, lawnmower, washing machine. Get ready because Travis will be lending his special FX talents to Poetic and if Raymond Did It was any indication ...there will be blood ...and lots of it.
And lastly, as if that we're enough, the self-proclaimed workaholic will be doing one more thing for the film - editing. Travis will bring the man taking all of the aspects - the creative vision of Matthew Cichella, the astounding talents of our amazing cast and crew and his own vision - and merging them all together to solidify Matthew Cichella's Poetic and complete Never Submit Entertainment's first feature film.
While Travis is extremely busy and hard at work on his upcoming web series, Legacy of the Masque, we were able to catch up with him and this is what he had to say about coming on board the production of Matthew Cichella's Poetic.
"I've known Matt for years." Travis explained, when asked about joining Poetic. "I was thrilled beyond words to see this guy's determination and love of filmmaking. When the opportunity arose to join the crew of Poetic, I knew I couldn't pass it up."
Who is Cowboy?
Previously, we announced that Giovanni Pauletti, the actor most well known as his role as Jimmy Stevens in FAMOUS, was going to be appearing in the film as the renegade killer simply known as Cowboy. Things have changed since that last update and today we want to fill you in on the new details.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, Giovanni Pauletti is no longer attached to Poetic. Never Submit Entertainment is very thankful for all of Giovanni's hard work and dedication to our previous films, and we wish him nothing but the best in all his future endeavors.
With that said, you must be asking yourself, so who is Cowboy? Well, allow us to answer that question....
