17 West Productions is about to get a big boost in the coming months.
You might say that things appear to be quiet these days. Today, I’d like to explain why.
Updates have been few throughout the summer but that doesn’t mean we aren’t working hard behind the scenes
Everything will make sense before 2010 wraps up.
Essentially, we are gearing up for a ‘relaunch‘ of sorts this winter with a ton of updates on the way.
It will begin with:
A complete redesign is in the works and construction got underway a few weeks ago. Preliminary designs are looking sweet and I can’t wait to show off our flagship site’s new look. I’m pretty excited as the current design is well over 2 years old.
Those who have been keeping track on this blog have probably noticed that I began migrating all of the articles and features from 17west.ca to The Athletic Nerd. The blog will serve as the central source of information for 17 West’s projects.
The new design incorporates the blog everywhere so you’ll always be up to date on our latest films.
The new look features a brighter and cleaner design with better graphics and a lot more functionality.
However, the redesign doesn’t stop there…
One network. One style. Tons of work.
Why the redesign?
The new design is due to go live around the same time we announce our next short film. For now, I’ll simply call it Eric Gamache’s dark tale.
We are hard at work developing the script and getting pitch materials together for the impending search for funds. The new film is truly going to raise the bar for us. Eric is a talented director and the material we are working on has us both pumped to move forward.
I’m also hoping to unleash the first trailer for The Climb, our latest short film we shot back in May. Post production will continue into the winter and I’m hoping to have the film completed and ready to go in Spring 2011. Why so long? I’m handling all the post myself. (Basically what I’m saying is, I have a lot to do.)
However, I still plan to have a trailer and possibly a clip or two ready for the relaunch of the site.
In the mean time, check out the poster we unveiled a few weeks back. Thoughts?
We will also be upping our coverage of Strings. A project we are co-producing in Sudbury, Ontario. Strings has been quiet lately but I assure you it’s on the way and we’re all excited and eager to proceed with the music/love story.
We are also beginning to develop our future projects to keep this momentum going once every thing launches in a few months.
To summarize, we are coming back in a big way!
Looking for updates?
Keep checking The Athletic Nerd for complete coverage on each of these projects. You’ll find all the details here with daily updates and original features. I’m also preparing for the Nerd’s 1 year anniversary with an entire week of posts dedicated to the milestone. I’ll also be previewing what you can expect as the site evolves in the future.
