On this day, three years ago, we begun principal photography on an independent film called “Payne & Redemption”. One thousand and ninety-one days later, and we’re still trying to finish it.

Welcome, my loyal comrades, to the new Payne & Redemption website!

Things have changed quite a bit around here…

We’ve moved servers and re-vamped the website, making it more user-friendly, accessible, and more informative. You can now navigate around the site by using the menu above, and gain access to the information you want without having an aneurysm in the process. I haven’t decided whether or not I will be importing the posts and comments from the old blog yet, nor if I will be bringing the forums back, but for now, you can access all of the old blog posts here.

Also, we are now accepting donations towards the completion of this project. There is no time limit this time, and no ridiculous sums being asked… But there IS a little somethin’ for each donation you contribute. Please read Producer Luke Morgan-Rowe’s post on this particular topic here.

OK, now the information you actually WANT to hear about. The film…

Back in 2006, we shot the end to Payne & Redemption, spare a few pick-ups and special effects shots. The very rough cut we spliced together clocked in at around 18 minutes long. Now we need to shoot the beginning, the middle, and clean up the end.

The goal? To utilize the footage we already have, and incorporate it into a 60 minute film… Or longer, if that’s what the story requires.

Fighting through my writer’s block, I am slowly, but surely, fleshing out a scaffolding of scenes, from three years worth of notes and unwritten ideas, that lead up to the already-shot grande finale. How long this process will take, I can’t say, but when I’m done, we can finally work towards getting this ball rolling and through the finish-line once and for all.

In the meantime, in true P&R fashion, we will be organizing, executing and releasing various forms of media to whet your appetites in the run-up to the rest of the film’s production.

This is a new beginning.

Stay frosty,

Fergle “Oh my God, it’s him!” Gibson,
Writer, Director & Executive Producer.

    well can’t say I’m happy the forum is dead… I use to have a few more laugh reading some old posts… but I guess all this change means the project is still breathing so that’s good.
