Production of Alan Rowe Kelly's "The Blood Shed" officially wrapped this afternoon! After an original shooting schedule of 12 days, we finished the shoot in 9! Thanks go out to the wonderfully talented cast and crew - every single person on this job gave it their all, without egos or attitudes. In low-budget filmmaking, the kind of bond this ensemble formed is indeed rare.

Production will continue on the behind-the-scenes documentary produced by Dragon Rider Productions and Craig Schiavone Media, as interviews will be shot in the next few weeks. We already have over 8 hours of raw footage shot, and literally thousands of still photos from various photographers have been taken. Look for a consolidated photo album soon, but in the meantime please check out Craig Schiavone's photos at http://www.craigvideo.net/thebloodshed/Index.html and Robert Norman's photos at http://www.norman-photography.com/Links-fun/blood-shed.html.
