Joe Swanberg’s production blog for BUTTERKNIFE, coming in January 2008
Welcome to the Butterknife blog! This will be a combination production journal/random thought catcher. We are shooting the second half of the season in December, and I will post plenty of pictures and thoughts from the set of the show, but for now I’m excited to present the trailer, featuring scenes from the episodes we’ve already completed.
Butterknife is my idea of a “genre” project. Obviously we’re doing something really different with our private-eye, but we’re still tapping into some of the conventions and hopefully adding a memorable new character to the long list of great on-screen investigators.
We’re very grateful to spout.com for sponsoring the show and making it available for free to everyone. The first episode will premiere in January, so make sure you sign up for email alerts. You won’t want to miss it.
