Trading Eights - The Trailer

Trading Eights, Episodes 2 & 3 were filmed concurently a few months after we filmed Ep. 1.  We greatly expanded the T8 universe, introducing a bunch of new characters and locations…something we’ll do again in Ep. 4.

Special thanks go out to our friends who let us shoot in their homes and apartments all over Los Angeles.

Did you know that Trading Eights, Ep. 1: Straight, No Chaser was originally concieved as a short film?  We shot it over a hectic two days in an apartment in Santa Monica, California, but we had such a blast making it that we started to ask the question: What happens next?  And Trading Eights: The Webseries was born.

Here are a few Behind the Scenes shots of cast and crew during filming.  After studying these photos, rewatch Ep. 1.  Who’s shoulder menacingly steps into frame in the final shot?

Stay tuned!

Hey gang,

Here’s the first tease for Trading Eights — The Webseries.  It’s a still from our open titles featuring the lovely Alison Haislip and the dashing Sean Owens.

We’ll have much, much more to come in the next few months as we gear up for a May 2010 release, so stay tuned!

It’s been a long time coming, but never fear…we’re still hard at work on Trading Eights.   Here’s a quick recap of the last few months:

  • We recently wrapped filming of episodes 4 and 5.  We also have about half of Ep. 6 in the can and we hope to finish it up by the end of the year.  Ep. 5 was a challenging two-day shoot in the 100+ degree temperatures of Acton and Agua Dulce (about 40 miles northeast of Los Angeles).  In addition to the scorching desert heat, we also watched as the Station Fire kicked up huge plumes of smoke in the Angeles National Forest, just to the east of where we were shooting.  Two days after we wrapped, the entire area we were filming in was evacuated for several days in fear of the fire destroying it!
  • The official website is coming along and should go live in early 2010
  • We expect to premiere the webseries in Spring 2010 with new installments released regularly every week.

If you’re tuned in already, we thank you for your patience and can’t wait for you to see what we’ve been working on for the past year.  You’re going to love it!

Congratulations!  Somehow you’ve stumbled across the blog for the forthcoming webseries Trading Eights, starring Alison Haislip, Sean Owens, and Josiah Trager.  We’re still busy writing and shooting more episodes before we begin posting later this summer.
