Scars is going Viral!

As you read this blog, we are busy programming a movie-specific website for Scars to start to generate some viral interest.

The site will appear to be that of Brenner Research, the fictional drug company at the heart of our story. As you explore the site it will become obvious that we are promoting a film and not saving mankind - there will be notes, plot synopses, photos and eventually a trailer for the film itself. The Brenner Research site will also offer an insight into the back story of our main character, Susan Brenner which is only hinted at in the film.

We are using RapidWeaver to upload both this site and the new one for Scars and it is meeting our needs very well - it's cheap, easy to use and has a range of templates that do a lot of the hard work for you. Although there are limitations, I would recommend it if you want a web presence without the hassle of learning the code as it were.

We will also be adding ways for you to contact us for both sites (other than Facebook and Twitter - what do you mean you haven't added us yet?!) so that the flow of information changes from a stream to a river. In fact, there should now be a way of adding comments to this blog page if we have clicked on the right button so feel free to start right away.

The next and final shoot days for Scars are fast approaching which means in a few weeks time we will start the post-production process. Cue blogs covering editing, grading and computer effects as well as a day in the life of a foley artist or "How to Make a Living Hammering Melons".

Until the next time, take care.
