Archive for December, 2018

The last post I made on this website was a little over three years ago.

A LOT has happened since then.

Some of it, I have publicised on the Payne & Redemption Facebook Fan Page, but most of it, I have made the decision to keep to myself until further notice.

I’ve been itching to let you guys in on so much more! But experience has taught me the harsh reality of counting your chickens before they are hatched.

So, for those of you who may have missed what’s been going on; here are a few highlights from the past three years:

October 15th, 2015

I released the first 1080p screencap from a sample clip I received from the very same Production House I would later hire to transfer the film’s HDCAM-SR tapes to hard-drive.


November 5th, 2015

I announced the transfer of the film’s HDCAM-SR tapes to hard-drive, allowing us access to the 1080p master footage for the first time, since 2006, in a file-based format — the biggest hurdle cleared in the history of the production.


December 1st, 2015

I released the second 1080p screencap from the film’s HDCAM-SR transfers.


January 22nd, 2016

Patrick Streutjens from PayneReactor released his 3rd interview with me, entitled “PAYNE & DEDICATION”.


April 13th, 2016

I released the first photographic comparison, between the Standard Definition footage we used to edit the original trailers, with that of the new 1080p footage.


April 20th, 2016

I followed up my previous post with another set of comparison photos, further outlining why it was necessary to have the HDCAM-SR tapes transferred to a file-based format.


June 27th, 2018

I announced the release of the first ever remastered trailer to Payne & Redemption, in 1080p, edited directly from the film’s HDCAM-SR transfers.


August 22nd, 2018

I announced that I had completed the fifth draft to the screenplay that will serve as our blueprint to accompany the footage we shot back in 2006.


A New Year; A New Beginning

2019 is a new year, and another 365 days rife with potential.

Q: Will we see more updates on Payne & Redemption over the next year?

A: YES! And as before, whilst I won’t divulge every little detail, I will keep you guys informed on most of the updates that are set in stone; on this website, the Payne & Redemption Facebook Fan Page, as well as on my Twitter account.

Q: Will Payne & Redemption ever see the light of day?

A: OF COURSE! Payne & Redemption has been a very long, arduous, expensive, and emotional roller-coaster for me, as well as for those around me. But what many forget, is that P&R is a passion project of mine — not a job I am paid to do — and therefore has to be juggled around life’s priorities and responsibilities.

In closing; to every one of you guys who still believes in this project, I cannot express how much gratitude I have for your unwavering support, not to mention how patient you have been and continue to be! It says a lot about your character, and I am proud to have you along with me on this journey.

The future of Payne & Redemption may not yet be set, but work on the production has never stopped, it will never falter, and it will continue into the night until it is ready to be released; when it’s done.

Happy Festivus, guys!

All the best to you and yours.

Stay frosty.

Fergle Gibson,
Writer, Director & Executive Producer.
