Tomorrow begins our production journey to bring the story of Acid Test to life! We’ve got an amazing crew of professionals spearheading our departments and I could not be more thankful to have their hard work and partnership. I’m quickly learning that a feature film, especially one as ambitious as Acid Test, is a huge task and I would not be able to move forward with this dream without them:
Producers: Anna Tran, Eddie Rodriguez, Hillary Felice
Director of Photography: Kerianne Parker
Gaffer: Ricardo Casco
Key Grip: Lou Mires
Production Design: Peter Kelly
Wardrobe: Courtney Sandifer
Sound: Gerald Morris
We’ve already had some help from our Houston Community College (HCC) students who’ve signed on to PA on the project for course credit, credit in the film, and (hopefully) an amazing networking and professional experience.
We’ve also gotten some incredible last-minute donations: OWC has donated hard drives to store all our footage onto, Lo-Fi Vintage has loaned us a bunch of 90s era clothes. We definitely would not be here without ALL the incredible and generous donations we’ve received including those who came in at the Associate Producer level: Christine Speiser, Pat & Marta Waldo, Robert Smith, and Michelle Mower! Of course all of our donations wouldn’t be possible without our fiscal sponsors From the Heart Productions and Fresh Arts and we’ve received additional sponsorship through Houston Media Source.
And even though we are funded for production, we are still actively fundraising for post-production, so if you haven’t donated yet, DONATE TODAY!
Acid Test now has an Instagram handle: @acidtestfilm. Follow us as we launch our feature film social media campaign.
This coming-of-age rebellion story is obviously very close to my heart and I look forward to collaborating with my cast and crew to bring something beautiful and provocative. More soon!
