DITCH — a 3-minute thriller — is a collaboration between Jerry Janda (PAINKILLER’s writer/executive producer/co-star) and Jeffrey Scott Gould (PAINKILLER’s cinematographer/executive producer/editor). Jerry wrote DITCH, and Jeff provided the cinematography and editing. Jerry and Jeff also directed and produced this taut mini-short.
Jerry and Jeff plan to make even more shorts (two are in pre-production), and we’re looking forward to seeing what else they come up with!
You can watch DITCH below. Check it out!

Break a leg, guys!

We’re happy to report excellent postproduction progress on PAINKILLER! Our awesome editor, Jeffrey S. Gould (also our director of photography and an executive producer), has been putting in long hours, logging footage, editing, color grading, as well as creating visual effects to enhance the film. This is the beginning of the collaborative process that will include our sound designer and composer, Barbara J. Weber, as well as director Jeremiah Kipp and Jerry Janda (writer, executive producer, and co-star). We can’t wait for you to see the end result. For now, here’s a taste of what’s to come!
And with that, the picture wraps.
Check out our Facebook page for behind-the-scenes photos from our final day of the PAINKILLER shoot, with the cast and crew focusing on the ironing and bathroom scenes — both of which are turning points in the film. Pivotal to the the plot, these scenes were played and shot brilliantly.
We are now in post-production, with editing and sound design planned for the summer. Look for the final film later this year — and continue to look here for updates!
Thanks to you all for your continued support and faith. We captured some amazing moments, and we look forward to sharing this story with you.
During days 5 and 6 of principal photography (April 18 and 19), the cast and crew completed the kitchen scene, the lab flashbacks, and a pivotal FX sequence. You can see all the latest behind-the-scenes photos on our Facebook page.
There are two scenes left to shoot before it’s a wrap! The last day of principal photography is scheduled for May 8, and the film is expected for release later this year.
The cast and crew put in another fantastic weekend of work, creating more amazing moments on April 12 and 13. You can find all of the latest behind-the-scenes photos on our Facebook page.
We have two more days of filming left: April 18 and 19. We have many incredible scenes left to shoot, and we can’t wait for you to see the final film! Thanks to everyone for their continuous love and support!
Check out some more behind-the-scenes photos — this time from Saturday, April 5.
We couldn’t show too much, as many of the scenes filmed Saturday contain spoilers. You’ll just have to wait for the film. It will be worth the wait!
Congrats to our crew and cast for working so hard and creating some truly memorable moments. We’ll be shooting more this weekend, and we look forward to sharing more of our progress with you.
Thanks to all of our supporters!
