With only one more scene to film, production is nearly complete.Â Last weekend we wrapped most of the cast.Â Although weâ€™re not officially wrapped, our production day last Sunday ended with an impromptu â€œwrap partyâ€Â at the local pub following cleanup. Â There was a terrific energy.Â The mood was unanimous: we all want to film more Out With Dad… a lot more. Â Our collective hope is that you, the audience, enjoys watching Out With Dad as much as we have making it â€“ then, with your help, weâ€™ll be able to afford to make more.
Weâ€™re fortunate that weâ€™ve had the good luck to assemble such a terrific cast and crew.Â We all get along with one another; and all have a passion for this project. Â As the instigator and co-organizer of this production, itâ€™s been very humbling.Â It was fun to see as the weeks have gone by how people have opened up, and everyoneâ€™s true sense of humours came through.Â Such a jovial bunch! Â This is the first weekend since we started production without any filming.Â A lot of us feel something missing â€“ the low after the high.
Post-production has begun, and editing is going smoothly.Â People are responding well to the rough cut scenes theyâ€™ve seen.Â Six episodes were originally planned for the first block, or â€œseason oneâ€. Â Iâ€™m pleased to say, now that theyâ€™re coming together, two of the episodes have enough material so that they can be split into two each.Â That would give us eight episodes in our first block, and I like the sound of eight episodes better than six. Â The run time of each episode is between 3-5Â½ minutes.Â Weâ€™re aiming to have the first episode premiÃ¨re in mid-to-late June.Â Each subsequent episode dÃ©but bi-weekly after that.
