We're in kindergarten now!
A message from New York Picture Company
Everything we make is thanks to our incredible creative partners, supporters, and fans. From our team on-set, to the incredible family and friends who helped out in production, those who cheer us on on social media, or others who helped us reach our fundraising goal, it’s clear to us how much we rely on you.
We couldn't be more excited to begin edit on our superhero mockumentary Zero Issue. The ambition of the project didn't sink in until the second weekend on-set in Schroon Lake, New York. We were four hours outside of the city, and close to 50 people had showed up to crew, act, be an extra, or just support the project. The footage we shot is beautiful and the performances hilarious. We hope the completed film will match the high expectations we’ve set for ourselves and provides you endless laughs.
It feels appropriate to close our fifth year as a company with a huge post-production push ahead. Thank you for being there for us the past couple of years -- from showing up to our Sketch Show launch party, to clicking like on Facebook, and now helping Zero Issue cross the finish line.
We look forward to celebrating the release of Zero Issue with you in 2018! We hope you enjoy taking a look back through the years with us below.
