45TH PARALLEL PRODUCTIONS, LLC and REEL INCREDIBLE, LLC are embarking on a new style of filmmaking. Traditionally, movies and shows start with a completed screenplay or script. A producer takes the screenplay, dissects it down in to many elements and distributes to the production team in an effort to further break it down to come up with a production schedule and budget. This process takes a considerable amount of time, coordination and effort, not mentioning at a great expense. Once the project is crewed up and talent casted, a budget is determined. Usually the full budget is procured through investors and a production date is set. Most films will have 15-25 days of shooting sandwiched in a 3-6 month time period where all of the crew, cast and locations have to be available. Pretty much everything is locked in story wise at this point. This method knocks out most small Indie filmmakers who are usually dealing with limited resources.
The Linear X Film or LXF, takes a different approach. Here’s where we differ. The complete screenplay or script may or may not even be completed. It can even just be an idea or storyline. We get a general drift on the story and come up with a starting point, build in some action, climax and resolution.
For an Indie filmmaker, a dedicated production schedule may be hard to accomplish, carving out several months straight to shoot a film. Equally, it may be hard to secure a consistent cast and crew being on a limited budget. There’s also location availability and of course, weather. With LXF there is a high degree of flexibility built in. For one thing, it is not necessary to have the budget fully in tact to start. In fact, since the film or show is produced in a linear aspect, it can spread out over an indefinite length of time. Particular attention still has to be made on continuity of the scenes, not unlike standard production. With this in mind, it is possible to change the storyline along the way to accommodate changes. The ability to introduce new cast, crew and locations is a definite plus. Actually, with a fair bit of creativity, the director can shoot scenes without scripted dialog, using improv or on-set direction for the talent, later writing in the action/dialog into a script for edit purposes.
We are utilizing the LXF method on “Disconnecting”, a spy-action thriller now in production.
