This web site is meant to track the progress of the animated film Time Flies and attract a community of people around it to help make it happen.
I harbor a passion for Cinema. Ever since i can remember, Films have exerted a deep fascination in me and i have told myself that i will make at
least one film before i die. I watch 500 movies a year easily and have been particularely influenced by South Korean Cinema for the past decade. I
operate the movie-centric site RatingMovies.com for almost as long now, and you can
easily see all the films i have recently seen,
or those i have recently reviewed.
On Halloween 2003, after attending the premiere of Savage Island, the first film of
an old friend of mine, i got the courage to start thinking about doing my own film and started work on
a script. Time Flies was born. To say i have been struggling is to put it mildly. I am not a writer by training and to say that my day job is miles away
from film-making is an understatement. So i have gone into this with very little experience, and not much beyond ideas and the passion to make it happen in
spite of all the time pressures i am under. My day job to pay the bills is something i actually love, and so, i devote a lot of time to it. I also have a
demanding family. But thanks to technology, i believe it's easier than ever to jump in and start creating and do it in a way that is accomodating to many
types of schedules. Over the next few years, i set out to make this film a reality. 6 Years later, i am now much closer to completion, but i still have a few hurdles
to get over.
I have worked this project almost like an Open Source Software project (having had personally a good amount of experience in this amazing business model). In summer 2007, i sollicited
help from a group of actors, and we recorded the full soundtrack for the film. I have also gotten help around the score, casting, and animation. This has been an exciting project so far
and right now, i am completing the animation. I hope to be done sometimes in the summer of 2010, and look for distribution then.
