As X3i season one shooting is winding down to an end X3i has now taken another turn. We have decided to cancel season 2 of the series to turn X3i into its own feature length movie. Alex is in the process of doing the final revisions of the script and shooting will start the very beginning of spring. The shedule will be very tight and compact. AJ (ajjax44) is also flying in from LA to help me on set to cameo and direct a "certain" scene of his.

Divinity will feature a whole new story line. Expect to see some very familiar characters undergo extreme alterations and expect to see innovation -- powers as they were meant to be used. Divinity will show Rifes as gods amidst humanity.

The film is set for a summer release if all goes really well, late spring. I will keep you all updated on the production of the film. Keep an ear out for this one friends. We are aiming to please. smile

Divinity has begun its first shoot today. AJ is in from LA to help out with the shoot as well as act/direct. The footage is looking great so far. We'll be shooting later today (Sunday) to wrap up AJ's and a few other's scenes. The movie is definately looking up. I'll keep you all posted and we'll have more for you tomorrow!

Well, this day was amazing. We completed all of AJ's scenes. Once again the footage came out beautifully. AJ is now on his way back out to LA. It was great to work with him on a project once again and cant wait till summer to start on our next. Anyways, I'll leave you all with a few more production stills. Hope you'll stay tuned for further news!

Well, were about 3/4's the way on filming the movie. I am editing scenes at the same time to cut down on time and also to make sure I dont need to go back and reshoot anything else. Things are looking good for the movie on the summer release. Just leaving you guys with a few screen shots from the flick. Hopefully I will have a teaser for you all within the next week or so.

Ooh, interesting news. I hope redesigning the show into a feature gives you the time to really pay attention to the little details and polish what has always been a very promising concept.

Looking forward to it, keep us posted!

What up Chris? As always, I had a blast last weekend shooting X3i with you. It was definitely great to be back making movies the way we know best. LA can be annoyingly and unnecessarily complicated sometimes and it was nice to eliminate the bull-ish and just make the damned movie. Ohio may be boring in general - but it has some baller locations and a pleasant lack of film saavy police, ha. All-around good times my friend. Best believe we'll have even more fun when we make the next one this summer.....Crifthfth!
