Movie is a wrap as of about 5:00 this morning! Thanks to our phenomenal cast and crew and especially our directors, Dale Fabrigar and Tony Canonico, for bringing the great script by Brian Herzlinger and Jay Black to life. Special thanks to Jeff DeMeo for staying awake for the whole shoot, capturing everything on film and serving as a great executive producer, and thanks also to Suzanne DeLaurentiis, Ivan Kavalsky and everyone at Suzanne DeLaurentiis Productions, our partner in making this film.

The news continues to be exciting on the front lines of pre-production. We're moving quickly into casting and the shoot itself appears to be moving up on the schedule. Dale and Tony are working on the shot list while Suzanne and her team nail down all the final details for the location. I had great conversations with Brian and Jay, who are very excited about the script they're writing. It's amazing to watch everyone pulling together in a common goal, and seeing just how much can be accomplished when everyone is on the same page. Makes being confident that much easier. Best of all we're trying to break some new ground with the found footage style and introduce a couple of directorial elements that have never been put into this type of film and we're working in some cool visuals that will really make Stone Marker look great! Keep tuned in...cheers! Clay

Great pre-production meeting with the full team tonight. Tons of excitement from the whole team. Brian and Jay came with some ideas out of the gate that blew me away in terms of setting the story and amping up the stakes... an impressive feat considering I wrote the original story and felt it was in pretty good shape to begin with. Dale, who signed on last with us, jumped right in and saw a vision of things in terms of style that looks like a perfect fit with Tony's vision -- one I already thought would turn out something great. At any rate, I have to confess I felt we would have to build the internal chemistry for a bit due to the number of personalities working on this but not the case at all. It was fantastic and has me fully convinced that fans are going to love Stone Marker too! Tentative schedule has us with a finished shooting script in two weeks with casting and locations nailed down during the same span. We're aiming to start shooting on March 26th in Los Angeles. Stay tuned for updates, blogs and video shorts. Cheers!
