We Promise... Late Nite Creature Feature Is Coming to an Interweb Near You

This post is looooong over due.  I know it.  You know it.  We know it.  We've spent the Winter hibernating with dreams and visions of a better, and more focused Late Nite Creature Feature dancing in our heads.  We've gotten through the cold and now begin the Spring fresh from our long nap, and ready to rock and roll.

First, there are a couple pieces of news -some good, some bad.  Let's start with the bad.  We were originally planning on having the married duo of Amber and Blake Brown to be part of our production from the beginning.  Originally, Amber would play our 1950s girl-out-of-time Betty.  Blake would have been our makeup artist, but due to time constraints and scheduling issues we couldn't quite line up, they have taken a temporary leave from the show.  We will miss them, but plan on bringing them back in the future!

Now the good news, and there are a few points of happy to share.  First, Amber McGuire has joined our cast as the aforementioned Betty.  She is bringing a new angle to the character and has just enough energy to boost the rest of the cast during a time when we needed a real pick-me-up.  Second, with that renewed energy and vigor, we're rushing headlong into filming our pilot episode.  We plan to have the first episode available for all to see in April, 2012.  Along with that, we'll be putting together a Kickstarter campaign to help raise some funds for various tools and possibly some LNCF merchandise.  Not only that, but we'll be handing this out like candy, so we'll be hitting up different sites, shops, and other locations with promotional copies of the episode and the whatnot.  Beyond that, we'll be looking have a new website and regular episodes start premiering in September.  We still plan to do 18 episodes for the first season with each episode being released on a bi-weekly schedule.

All that said, expect much more from us in the coming weeks.  I plan to post new updates at least twice a month or more.  We'll be hitting the webs fast and furious with news, pictures, and, hopefully, videos.  So make sure you stay tuned!
