Upcoming Plans and a Theme Song for the Show

Howdy folks...  We're getting some great ideas flowing on the series so far.  I'm meeting with a couple actors this weekend to bring them up to speed with where we are in the concept and the planning.  This will lead to a larger gathering of the entire crew to put everyone on the same page so we can get to writing our pilot and start cranking these episodes out.  Look for the pilot to premiere in early July.  We will then spend the rest of the summer raising funds and prepping for the regular series to premiere by October (just in time for Halloween!).  I, personally, will be using that time getting things such as a full website up and running, exclusive behind the scenes info and pictures up, and interviews with our cast and crew.

After all...  Why not get to know the people we hope you'll invite into your homes on a regular basis?

For now, I leave you with a taste of our first theme song.  While I can't promise this will be the final version used, I think you'll like as much as I did.

UPDATE (9/9/2011):  A more appropriate theme song announcement will be coming prior to release of our first episode.  Stay tuned to learn more about that!

And So It Begins

This is the first of what hopefully will be many blog posts for Late Nite Creature Feature. It's kinda hard to believe that the idea for this program is only a week old, but has moved so far so fast. So, let's outline some things...

First, the program itself... Late Nite Creature Feature is a show that pays homage to all the great monster movie hosts throughout history. While some regions and cities still have their hosts, like Svengoolie in Chicago, those of us living in Indianapolis haven't had a local person since 1989 (despite that very character planning a return soon), and we've had anything at all since TNT's Monster Vision went away.

But this show isn't going to be specific to Indianapolis or the immediate region. With the internet, we're able to spread out and reach as many people as we can. While the show will have the local flair of the Svengoolies or Sammy Terrys, just to name two, it should also have the broader scope of shows like Monster Vision or Mystery Science Theater 3000. More details are to come about the characters and the episodes we plan to get rolling with.

Second, were are we at currently? Well, the series is still in the very early stages of pre-production. We have basic ideas for the main characters. We have nearly 250 movies to mine. That's not even mentioning the countless other movies out there available for download or randomly shoehorned into box sets. We've got a skilled production staff and writers with great senses of humor and sharp wit for things like this.

So what should you look for in the days/weeks to come? As our conceptualizing continues, look for information about those who are making the series, the movies we're looking to do, a teaser trailer for the series, general updates about where we are in production, and, finally, news on a Kickstarter campaign for anyone who wishes to contribute to make this happen. So stay tuned, and we'll keep updating you on this labor of love and, hopefully, a source for entertainment for you each weekend on a computer near you!
