Principal Photography is Complete!

     By Vitaly Sumin (writer/director/producer)      

The principal photography wrapped in May! Ever since the disappearance of Robert Hurley, the co-screenwriter, the production faced odd challenges and hurdles. (Please read about them and view our Video Journals.) Hurley’s disappearance remains a perplexing mystery. Yet, with perseverance, tenacity, and the dedication and hard work by our talented cast and crew, we have successfully completed a great principal photography. Although many of our original cast and crew members had to leave the production for various reasons (see our pre-production pages), we were lucky to have found such talented new cast and crew members. I am so proud and thankful for their talent, hard work, and dedication. Of course, as a small independent film, it wasn’t easy. Everyone put in long hours and endured tough challenges. We couldn’t pamper the cast and crew like a major studio film. The food wasn’t always so good, and we certainly could have used more equipment. But these challenges only caused everyone to work harder, and we’re excited to be moving into post-production with terrific footage.

Thank you to the great cast and crew of “Notes from the New World.
