Celebrating a Milestone: Wrapping Production on SKYCRASH

As the curtains close on an exhilarating chapter, I find myself reflecting on the incredible journey that has been Skycrash. It's hard to believe that our vision, once just a spark of creativity, has now transformed into a full-fledged feature film. With production officially wrapped, I am filled with a mix of emotions—pride, gratitude, and perhaps a hint of nostalgia—as I look back on the incredible moments and challenges that have shaped this remarkable endeavor.


From the moment I joined writer-director Taegen Carter on this journey, I knew we were embarking on something special. The script, with its compelling characters, captivated our team's imagination. As a first-time producer, I was both excited and daunted by the prospect of bringing this ambitious project to life. Little did I know the rollercoaster ride that awaited us.


The journey from pre-production to wrap day was nothing short of extraordinary. Countless hours were spent by our team hiking to exquisite forested locations in the woods of Oregon, assembling the right cast and crew, and fine-tuning every detail of production to ensure that our vision translated seamlessly onto the screen. Each day on set brought its own set of challenges, but it was also a testament to the unwavering dedication and passion of everyone involved. I couldn't be more proud of what our team accomplished.


One of the most rewarding aspects of producing Skycrash was witnessing the collaborative spirit that permeated every aspect of the production process. From the director's creative vision to the tireless efforts of the cast and crew, it was truly a team effort in every sense of the word. Every individual brought their unique talents and perspectives to the table, elevating the project to new heights. There were many punches and each member of our small crew, while wearing minimum 3 hats, rolled with each one as they came. I often say that independent filmmaking is building the tracks ahead of a train that's already rolling and our 29 day shoot schedule was definitely that!


As we bid farewell to the hustle and bustle of the production phase, I am filled with a profound sense of gratitude. Gratitude for the opportunity to collaborate with such a talented and dedicated group of individuals. Gratitude for the invaluable lessons learned and the personal growth that accompanied them.


As we prepare to roll into a hearty post-production process, I am reminded of the power of storytelling to inspire, to provoke, and to unite us all. It has been an honor to play a part in this journey, and I eagerly anticipate sharing the fruits of our labor with audiences far and wide.


With Skycrash, I shed the qualifier of "first time" in "first time filmmaker." Grateful to get to be a storyteller in a world where stories matter.
