Cyberhunt… an SG Entertainment production

Sunday, June 15th, 2008

Sure I have no money or experience producing, but it still has a nice ring to it. Will dive in to this when my 11 hour days at Cow are finished in November. In the meantime, if anyone has $4 million they’re not using right now, give me a call.

Letter to the Cyberhunt team from writer/producer Jerry Seward:

Hi All! I wanted to update the team on current developments. It looks like there’s finally going to be some major, positive movement on the investment front. Can’t say much right now but I’ll let you know as soon as I can about any meetings – thanks, Gary! I also want to say thank you to Rod for the tireless work he’s been doing in regards to infrastructure.

As I’ve said before, we’re basically set to go if not for the lack of money.

So, I’m pursuing firm letters of intent from my first-choice list of pro actors:

Steve Bacic (for Darkeye – http://www.stevebacic.com)
Charisma Carpenter (for Raven – http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0004806/)
Jason Carter (for FBI Agent Mitch Kinners – http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0141682/)
Mare Costello (for Fran Striker – http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2298271/)
Louis Gossett, Jr. (for Richard Gammond – http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001283/)
Chase Masterson (for Major Lindsay Eckert – http://www.chasemasterson.com)
Katee Sackhoff (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0755267/)
George Takei (for Takamoto - http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001786/)

Yes, there’s interest but I really need those letters of intent, so I’m actively working on getting them, as many of you have asked about the status of them.

And don’t worry, local actors, I still want you – that means Brandy Brousseau, Alan Canning, Dangerous Lee, Terry Freers, Kristen Gidley, Kelsey Kloc, Yanni Kuznia, Joanna LaRose, Sonja Ribicki, to name just a few of you here. There will still be auditions for many of the other roles. I appreciate your patience – we’re getting closer.

Also: I’ve brought Steve Gast on board as a co-executive producer, and CYBER HUNT will most likely be under a new production banner – if not SG Enterprises, then possibly SG Entertainment. I believe Steve is going to be an invaluable asset to this project and I’m happy to have him on the team.

Marty Shea (61*, Street Boss), as much as I wanted him as Line Producer, won’t do the work without the money and I can’t wait anymore until we have it for him. So, it’s forced me to find and do some bartering with someone local who’s willing to do the work pro bono as, again, it can’t wait. She would do the complete script breakdown and help get our budget and Business Plan in order for investors.

I must say, the Michigan Film Package has opened up things tremendously…. there are people who are starting to see the big picture and of the possibilities of filmmaking as an industry in this state.

Busy but still having fun,

Jerry Seward

Producer, Cyber Hunt

Harvey,
I will always regret not going to see you perform when you were in town a few years back. You may have been the worst straight man ever, but brother I’m going to miss you!
