ABP Update 01-20-2010

I just got back from beautiful, sunny Costa Rica and thought I’d update everyone about what’s happening at ABP.

We are well into post-production on our sci-fi/crime project. Talented Moviestorm machinimator and voice actor Jorge Campos has joined the voice cast along with professional actor Joe Thomas. Tommy Kraft is also working on some visual effects for the film. Very soon we will be moving into the last stages of post-production which includes music scoring, sound design, and some tweaking of the visuals.

Here is another teaser image from the film. The man in the chair is the main character, Howard Grant:

Stop, Rewind preview 3

All we can say right now is that it will be a short sci-fi/crime film about 6 minutes in length. Production is complete and we are currently finishing up visual effects and casting. The movie will also have an original score written by ABP’s own Tommy Kraft.  Check back for more updates!
