Community Service The Movie is now on IMDB and will be available in one week for digital download.
Community Service The Movie was started in the summer of 2008. At first we had solid guidelines to a good story but no actual script. We also had a limited crew, cast, equipment, and budget expenses. After talking to some of the members who were on board, we decided to wait till the following spring and get organized. We held auditions in March of 2009 with a couple hundred people showing up for the auditions thanks to craigslist, explore talent, and talent 6. We never expected this big of a turn out. As the shoots went on during the summer days, the weather was not in our favor (rain, wind, etc). The summer of 2009 we were suppose to be wrapped up from shooting but once again we had a lot to finish and did not want to rush it. The cast was still on board of course and had very little trouble getting them ready. We recently just finished all of the needed shots and scenes to the film! We thank every one who was involved, from this year or last year. We had hundred of people help out behind camera and on camera. Post Production is now in process and the film will be expected to be done with everything in about two months. From there we will hit as many of the spring film festivals as we can but mostly the fall. Trailer will be up in about two weeks. Thanks for all of the support and please follow us on facebook for the Fastest news.

This past weekend, August 14th was overwhelming for all. We started out meeting up in Gates. Few of the cast members were late and hard to get in contact with but we didn’t let that stop us. We shot the scenes we could first and ended up finishing 80% of the shots. The weather held up nicely. This was the final day of shooting for Daniel Trinh (Dakota), Caitlin Kenyon (Kim), and Renell Edwards (Smith). We want to thank them for given us the time and effort.
We added two new crew members this weekend, Jessica and Christina. The shoot went down smoothly. We arrived just after three, did some setting up as we waited for the rest of the crew and cast to arrive. Our security Guard, Chris Mele, came from Ohio for this five hour shoot. Wild Bill also drove a good hour and a half from buffalo. We thank all that were involved. Shooting will pick back up on the weekend of August 14th with one of our biggest shoots yet. After that, we only have three more days of shooting! Post Production has already taken place and that just means a trailer isn’t to far behind!

This weekend we will be shooting Billy Fouls escape from the Psychiatric center in the Valentown museum in Victor, New York. This location was also used for the television show Ghost Hunters on April, 21st, 2006. This show aired on SyFy along with some other channels.
It all started out on the morning of June 12th, 2010. The Crew arrived early to give us a hand loading all of the equipment onto the truck. We then headed to Dansville, N.Y. to begin our two day long film shoot. We unloaded at the cabin and then headed to Pokes hole for the first scene. Everything was going fine until one of the batteries died. The other batteries were still back at the cabin so we decided to finish that scene later as we got ready for the next scene setting up the dolly. The next couple scenes went down smoothly. We ended up ending early which gave us more time to set up for our night time scene.
After setting up multiple lights around the cabin, it was time for some more filming. The Cast and Crew were getting sleepy, with ten hours of straight shooting who wouldn’t be? We only had about two more hours of shooting. The lights were a minor factor in filming but we easily adjusted them and continued. We then decided to finishing in the morning with the dream sequence.
It was 8am on June 13th, waking up to rain. Rain and horrible weather was a major factor in our shoot last year which delayed us from finishing last year. Everyone was ready to start shooting but the rain didn’t want to hold up. At roughly 12pm we were ready to shoot, but first we took some promo pictures of the cabin and the cast so we would be able to play around with it in editing trying to come up with a dvd/movie poster!
We only had one more scene left and it would be the hardest one all weekend, Kim’s Death. We quickly designed a mat to lie under Kim (Caitlin Kenyon) that would safely be used underneath her as she got pulled up the hill by a 50ft rope. We were able to get multiple shots which turned out Fantastic!

Rochester is starting to feel that nice weather again, the trees are coming out fully and that just means our cast and crew are getting ready to start filming! The first weekend of June, June 4th, should be the start of our shoot once again. We have alot to do in the next month. The final Revised script just came back, all of the cast members are waiting to get the shooting schedule, (Within the next week), and some additional crew members will be joining our team with some from the past year. We recently came upon another cabin in which we will get to use for the second half of the film.
The month of June will be intense but fun. But before hand, we need to get access to a passanger van to transport the community service workers and for our Airplane shot!! Also we will have to get together with our special effects crew members and come up with a fake head and some other body parts along with planning out all of the death scenes!
We had alot of request about the trailer, but its just a matter of time! We are trying different techniques to see which one would fit the film the best. Stay tune, its just a matter of time!
