Hometown: Starring Bill and Tucker


Hometown: starring Bill and Tucker from Jon Dekok on Vimeo.

Here it is guys!!!  Jon and I's first foray into making our own film.  We used this as a way to teach ourselves Flash so it has definitely got it's flaws, but it's also one big step towards something decent.

I could write a huge article on the entire production experience but I simply don't feel like it right now. Basically it took us about 2-3 months of actual production and a few months prior of just brainstorming.  I was also working full time at Tim Hortons which made it even more of a challenge.
All in all, Jon and I make a balanced team. The fact that we are brother and sister helps because we have so many of the same influences and therefore share a very similar artistic sensibility, but we also have our individual strengths to help fill in the needs of the production.  We are both pretty passionate about our work and tensions  can get high, also with LOTS of laughter and very little sleep this has been a magical experience. Really out of this world. We will definitely be doing this again and next time it will look a lot better.
