INSIDE COWBOY SPIRIT FILMS
Weekly Update for Feb. 12, 2012
In this week's installment, we wanted to update you on three things which we hope you'll find of interest: an update on the Cowboy Spirit movie; an announcement of our intended publishing schedule on the Cowboy Spirit blog; and a request for our Cowboy Spirit community.
Update: Cowboy Spirit the Movie
We've made a great deal of progress with our Cowboy Spirit film this past week, both in terms of casting as well as the crew and locations.
It looks like we've successfully cast the critical role of Ted, the lead male in the film. This was one of the more difficult roles to cast because the role calls for a very specific type of actor - and we truly believe we found him! We're excited to introduce you to this very talented young man in the coming weeks.
Casting for he role of Molly, the lead female - an aspiring country singer and single mom, is ongoing and we've had a number of talented women who've sent us inquiries. We suspect that our problem with this role will be choosing from among several compelling actresses.
Progress has been great in terms of filling production roles, securing locations, and filling a few of the minor roles. We've secured the talents of an additional producer as well as a Director of Photography. We also secured two of the main filming locations - a critical part of any film production, but especially for Cowboy Spirit, given the country/city needs of the movie. We expect to have an open casting session for several of the other roles in the film, most likely in the latter part of March.
If you have any interest in being part of the cast or production crew, please shoot Bill an email.

A Request of the Cowboy Spirit Community
Lastly, we'd like to request your feedback. If you have any thoughts to share, feedback or suggestions to offer, or things on your mind, please share them in the comments below, post them on our Facebook Fan Page, or send us an email.
If there are westerns you'd like for us to review, please let us know. Or better yet, if you'd like to be a guest blogger and do a review yourself, we'd love to have you. Just give us a holler and let's talk.
It's very important to us that you, our Cowboy Spirit community, be actively involved in our work, not only in the sharing of our passion for the western movie genre, but most importantly, for our own creative projects. After all, we're making westerns for YOU and we want you to be involved.
Thanks and have a great week...
Mike and Bill
