A Steampunk Western

Behind the Scenes: Day One

In case you missed it during our second Kickstarter campaign, here’s a great Behind-the-Scenes video from Day One of filming Cowboys & Engines.

If you’re new around here, welcome! You’ve found the website for Cowboys & Engines, an epic western steampunk adventure starring Battlestar: Galactica’s Richard Hatch,  Star Trek‘s Walter Koenigand A Clockwork Orange star Malcolm McDowell.

Huge thanks to everyone who helped fund our second Kickstarter campaign! But even though our Kickstarter has closed, YOU CAN STILL BE A PART OF THE FILM!

We’re still accepting funding and donations via PayPal! If you missed out on the awesome rewards we posted on Kickstarter, this is a second chance to get in on this amazing project. Simply choose the package you want to get from our Kickstarter page, and then click the PayPal link below to donate!

We’re fully funded, but every dollar still helps! Get involved with the coolest crowdfunded film project ever!


Post-Production Update

Howdy, all.

Just a quick update on where things stand with C&E. The film is edited (barring any tiny tweaking), and the Visual FX are fully underway. We knew this was going to be a huge undertaking, and we’ll get it done, but without a big-budget Hollywood team of hundreds, the process is slow.

Once final color and FX are finished, sound design and music get added, then we begin arranging screenings and pressing discs.

As our own Richard Hatch likes to say, Keep the Faith! We certainly haven’t forgotten about you. The Steampunk Western you wanted is coming soon!

Post-Production for the Holidays

We apologize that it’s been so quiet around here lately. Everyone involved with the project has been positively buried, but that’s a good thing, right?

As most of you know, we launched a second successful Kickstarter at the beginning of September to finance an expansion of the film. As a result, we’ve added scenes to the film we couldn’t originally afford to shoot.

The good news is everyone from the first Kickstarter campaign is getting a bigger, better, expanding movie. The bad news is, this pushed all of our delivery dates back until March of next year.

We’re in post-production right now, with tons of effects work being the primary focus. The final film should be a truly amazing piece of work.

As we get closer, we’ll try to post a few teases of what you have to look forward to. In the meantime, and Richard Hatch likes to say, we’re keeping the faith!
