I Love the Smell of Pre-Prod in the Morning…

February 4th, 2010 by Devi Snively (The Directrix)

ApclypsNow_Still_0059.JPGpre-prod 1 smIt smells like….victory!  Or at least home sweet home.  Yes, it’s official.  We have just kicked off pre-production for our next film. This is the longest our Deviant team has gone without shooting something brand spanking new and it’s about high time we get back on set.  I know I’m seriously pumped. Read the rest of this entry »
