Greg's Treasure Map update

I have been doing casting calls and interviewing actors. Greg's Treasure Map is now fully cast.  
Three of the four lead actors for Ghost of Thunder Last have been cast.
I have filmed a bunch of promo videos for the film and actors. 
The underwater cave set is past the 55% finished zone and will be ready for filming the first week. 
The sail boat is working fine. I need to do a repaint yet. Hopefully tomorrow. 
The camera boat still needs a replacement motor. I got one but that motor was cracked as well.  I guess it will be thrid times the charm.

Greg's Map

Things are going well at the moment. we have the man cast and are casting some smaller roles. We have also teamed up with some War of 1812 re enactors for the opening of the film. two big problems I am working on is 5000 gallons of water for the underwater cave film set. The cost is around $750 to have the water trucked in. The other is just running out of money fast. please swing by and help get the film made by sponsoring the production. www.sterlingjohnstonfilms.ca Yep thats right I am rebranding as there is a ton of Sterling Production websites sites out there. People keep emailing the wrong people thinking its me they are emailing. but its not. the rebrand will fix that problem.

We have three so far.

We have 3 actors lined up for Greg's treasure Map at this point. We have two more lined up for auditions. I'm rewriting the script to cut the budget down to $2000 but with todays prices it may hit $4000 very easly. I have put in mosion building the under water cave set and will have some updates on that soon. I'm trying to find a boat as the Boat Mike bought last winter has a bad motor. The motor does run like the guy said but it also fills the inter block with water. it needs a compllet rebuild so I'm working on buying a small sail boat for $600.

Greg's Map?

We are looking into the possibility of making Greg's Treasure Map this summer. It really depends on if we can find actors, props and locations.

Covid and film production

Covid is still very much on actors parents mineds. I did a two month casting call for the large cast film this summer but only had one actor interested.  All the local summer camps are advertising like crazy so I'm guessing they are having problems finding guests as well.

What's new and trying to survive after Covid lockdowns deviating my finances

I no longer making films but I do need to make some money. So far in 2022 I have made $38 from taking some scrap metal in and that's nowere near what I need to live on. I need to pay my car insurance $1200 and I need to buy gas to get around to find work.  Also my season campsite where I live for the summer months $3000. Money for food would also help. 

As I'm not looking for hand outs, I'm going to start offering autographed, limited photo quality 24" x 36" movie poster prints for $100 canadain. It includes world wide shipping. If your a true fan of my volunteer work and the films I use to make you can help me get back on my finacal feet again by buying a poster.  I may also start sell autographed 8x12 photo prints of my best photography. What are your thoughts? Please post your thoughts in the comments below or please feel free to email me sterlingjohnstonfilms@gmail.com Thank you for your support.
