Oooh yeah! I plan on putting together a new trailer once we wrap this sucker up in a couple of weeks! I'll announce it here when that's done!

Thanks!

Sadly, thanks to monetary difficulties, I won't be able to join you. *sigh* But I'll be there for the premiere! And should you choose to make another QL fan film... hint hint hint...

Hey, we gotta get new QL somehow.

Hi Everyone!

Just a quick update...

We finally wrap production on Dec 6th in downtown Indy, complete with a classic QL ending that is true to the spirit and theme of Quantum Leap. Its funny, classic, and memorable. I can't wait to film it!

Secondly, Sharon Major of 'Project Quantum Leap' recently interviewed me for the latest issue of 'The Observer', which is available on their website located here. A huge thanks to Sharon and the folks at Project Quantum Leap for their interest and time!

Lastly, thanks to all of YOU who have shown your support and belief in this project. Its gaining a lot of positive momentum, building for the premiere at Leapback 2009!

Thanks,

Chris

As someone who joined the forum in May, and someone who has only passively watched the progression of this, I must say that everyone is doing such a great job! Makes me sad that I'm not going to be able to attend the convention...

I hope the movie is a big success. This may have been already asked, but are you going to be posting a video of the movie on the website?

It seems absolutely awesome.
I'd also like to see it please, as I probably won't be at the convention either.

Looks like you guys are having a lot of fun!

I have to say. I am really impressed with the amount of publicity this movie is getting. It is even on IMDB. With as much traffic as IMDB gets I am pretty sure someone who can actually has influence in Hollywood will definately realize the potential of a brand new Quantum Leap movie or series and put it into production. Hopefully, DB might even realize it.

Thanks everyone! Jaycol, that's our point of doing this... to show 'the powers that be' that yes, QL is still a viable property, and yes, its well worth the time & money to invest into. Plus, if we can 'pay it forward' with donating our Control Panel, all the much better. Its been a labor of love for everyone involved!

And a big thanks to everyone who has participated in our Associate Producer program! THANK YOU!!


Chris

Smile Make that TWO stars!!

Well folks, make that TWO STARS who are now involved with this project...

We end this with a BIG bang!! We landed Ms.
Beth Horn, one of the stars from this season of another popular NBC show, American Gladiators. She played ‘Venom’ in the show, and will be appearing as a special guest star in our film. Giving away her role would spoil the show, but suffice to say it will be classic Quantum Leap that fans will LOVE.

Happy Leaping…

Chris

I really can't wait to see this film. I'm glad I have been able to be a part of it and can't wait for my copy of the film.

Hey Chris or the powers that be, do you reckon we can have photos taken behind the control panel before it is auctioned off?

Hmmm this looks rather good! Surprisingly!

That is not a slight at the cast or crew of this project. But attempted fanfilms have become a dime a dozen.

Too often people with very little skill or experience make well intended promises of things they never achieve.

But this appears very impressive from the photos in this thread. Good casting of Sam and Al. Well done sets. Quantum Leap deserves this type of quality. I look forward to seeing the finished project.

Thanks, Marissa!!

Great news about Beth Horn - you should ask her to stop by and view the film with everyone at the convention, Chris.

This looks like a very professional production. I am very impressed.

You never know with fanfilms. Too many well intended people make big promises of things that they are incapable of achieving. So I have become highly skeptical that newly announced films will be made at all, let alone good! That is not a slight at THIS cast and crew.

Everything about this effort seems great. The casting of Sam and Al is right on the money! That is got to be the hardest part. Especially because this is the first (I think) QL fanfilm of any kind. The sets look very impressive. The challenge with Quantum Leap is that it mostly took place in the real world. While that saves the budget of needing to create alien planets, it creates the need to shot on real locations.

I almost missed the coolest news of all when I skimmed this thread the first time. Deborah Pratt is back as the voice of Ziggy!!!!! This is a stunning acomphlishment.

ISZ,

Beth is playing a pivotal role in our film. I don't want to give too much away, suffice to say that it will be a classic QL twist. I'm sorry, but if I give it away, then the whole point of the her scene is defunct.
What do they call it... oh yes, a SPOILER!!

I'll definitely tell Beth about the fest!

Thanks,

Chris

A spoiler you say...In this case please don't tell us.
I just hope it's nothing like the twist we had in the end of QL episode - "Lee Harvey Oswald" ,if you know what i mean...

Smile We are finished!!

Well folks, we are completed with Principal Photography! Four months to the day we started, and we ended back up in the very basement we started this incredible journey back in August. Hard to believe this is over, but I can't wait to get started on this!!

Now Post Production begins... importing all the scenes, cutting them together, Special Effects, sound effects, EVERYTHING.

Here are some images from this weekend...

And yes, Brian, Beth said she is planning on stopping by at Leapback! She'll be in LA shooting the new season of American Gladiator, and she said she's coming! Maybe she can be added as one of the events' special guests?

Can't wait to see it!

Just a thought... Donating the control panel is a great idea, and it'll probably make a lot of money. But, before selling it off, what about offering some photo ops with it? Some of us are geeky enough to want to pose with it and pretend we're in the control room!

Okay, I'm geeky enough to want to, anyway...

And it's great to see the film getting so much attention! Way to go! I hope this leads to more fan films. Or a real QL film...
