Busy Ass Day

Well today I couldn't even tell you how many scenes we filmed for the movie but it was a lot. We started at around 9:30 in the morning and filmed for about two hours. We have to redo only one scene too thank goodness. When filming so much at once, a lot can get messed up.

However it was a productive day. I wish I had a bigger crew at times but for everyone being so new, it is working out well. Just got a lot more to do so that you guys can watch a very good short film.

Keep happy,

Today was a long day but it will all be worth it for tomorrow. It is the big day for the crew, I have left the whole individual interviews and we are now ready for everybody to come together. I am nervous to be directing so many people but I am very excited at the same time. I can not wait to do it.

Well today I filmed True Docs episode 7, made a new boompole diy style, and got the set decorations ready for tomorrow. For now I leave you with a screenshot from the interview and a link to my new vlog. Enjoy people.

Worked too long today

Well today I was at work from 11:30 to 8 and tomorrow is 8am to 3. However a lot of brainstorming went down today. I have new and different ideas for the new film coming out entitled "Gas Guzzlers." I am also thinking it will be close to a half hour long film. I don't really know though. We will start with interviews on Tuesday. Thinking about vlogging about it, not too sure though.

Anyway more developments coming soon.

How to promote my shirts

Hey everyone. Today is going to be a long workday so I am getting everything done rather early. I am wondering however how I can better push my products. I have 12 items now in my store and still have no buyers. I have lowered prices and have been pushing it on youtube and facebook all week but don't know where else to go with it.

If anyone has suggestions that would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks and have a wonderful day,

Editing Done

Just got the editing done for True Docs Episode 5: Addiction. It was a tough edit and it is my longest video yet clocking in at almost ten minutes but that is because there is so much information here. I will leave you a nice screenshot from it as a preview but it will be on youtube at midnight Sunday. Be on the lookout for it.

Also I am officially opening my merch store for To Tony Productions today. There is a bunch of merch there ranging from shirts to buttons. If you like what you see please order something. It helps me to fund future film endeavors. Link is: http://totonyproductions.spreadshirt.com/

Interview Done

Just got done filming my interview with my cousin. It turned out well. The picture isn't as good as I hoped but sometimes that is just the way it goes. More information to come. Time to edit.

Filming Today

So today I am going to film my next interview for True Docs Episode 5. This week I am interviewing my cousin Todd. Going into this thing I don't know what he is willing and is not willing to talk about so I am just going to let him decide that. For that reason I don't really have a title yet.

On other notes I am working on a t shirt shop for the company. Soon you will be able to buy all your To Tony Prodcutions merch. Also don't forget to check out my youtube page and if you want to please add me as a friend or subscribe. The link is on the logo pic, so just click and it will take you there.

Chill Day

So today is just some downtime for me. A friend/intern for the company was supposed to come down today but I had to reschedule due to some personal matters. Anyway I am going to just test out the different picture qualities and how to get rid of some ghosting when I upload videos. Anyone who knows how to fix ghosting problems please let me know.

Mania Music Group's first album Welcome To The Audience drops tomorrow on amazon, itunes, and bandcamp. The people behind all of it are some of the most talented and amazing artists I have ever met or heard material from. When I first started filming at the studio I was nervous as hell but now that I have been accepted as part of the crew I feel like they are family.

The stories that you hear about from artists are some of the most interesting in the world and these guys are not short of that. They have worked hard to make it hear so I think just take the time to see what material they have on the website: www.maniamusicgroup.com. Listen and enjoy, if you like what you hear please buy the album and support great artists.

Thanks guys. VIVA LA MANIA!!!

So today I tested out the manual focus of my camera. I got a lot of footage looking through glass and tested the color options out using the picture profile option on the NXCAM. I got a lot of very pretty shots and have uploaded the footage up to my youtube account. The link is right here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jB2npVtb0VM

On another note in the video I use the song "Blvd" by Rapman Ron G of Mania Music Group. Mania is a local Baltimore rap label that is releasing there first full CD tomorrow. Other artists on the studio include: Kane Mayfield, Milly July, and Dappa Dan Midas. You should head over to www.maniamusicgroup.com to take some time and download some of their free mixtapes. With over 20,000 downloads so far they are definitely worth checking out.

Today's Agenda

Today I am going to test out my new Sony HXR NX5U camcorder I finally received last week. Starting with the last video I have posted expect much better HD quality videos and video projects. I am still getting crew together for my next short film, which is going to be a mockumentary styled project. I will be uploading a test footage video up soon so be on the lookout for that.
My fourth video installment of True Docs has now been posted on youtube. Check it out on my youtube page here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N6tMpeaxDeM

Let me know what you think.
