Ain't it Cool With Harry Knowles 2012
Published at: Oct. 25, 2012, 11:09 a.m. CST

Hey folks, Harry here...

I want to thank y'all for mainly being so kind in regards to this little show we've been putting on for the last 30 weeks. This makes it right at 7 hours of content, and looking back honestly...the whole show has been a bit of a miracle.

We're really low budget, but my director Brett Hart put together a team of folks that have been a one day a week family for 6 hrs to 15 hrs. And a post team that have burned all the midnight oils to try to make me somehow passable for an early animatronic Disney Imagineering failure. I kid, but our VFX Deity, Brian Behm has brought such a level of genuine cool. There's a ton of folks that supported this insanity of mine & Brett's. Suzette Soucie designed and brought the basement to life out of what came out of my mouth one day. I can remember explaining Boiler - but never dreamt he'd be such a function of my own Id Monster.

Given the once a week format, I felt making each episode its own thing, done as right as we could - might be fun. The notion was that we could convey film news & history in a manner that celebrated and wallowed in the medium. Each episode we tried to do something different. For me, it was learning production.

The finale episode for me had to wrap up the rest of the year and look ahead to 2013 & beyond. I just wouldn't know how to do it otherwise. We were honored to have a surprise guest pop in last minute, literally... on my way to set, kinda last minute.

This celebration of film was always scheduled to end at 30. At the beginning, I couldn't imagine it going past 3 episodes, that we actually got through all 30 is amazing to me, but now it has kind of become a habit. Tuesdays were so much fun, because we'd hit the studio at dawn and shoot till we "got it!"

Right now, we're awaiting word about a 2nd season. But the whole creative team is energized and eager to move forward no matter what. I have loved making these more than you can know. Just getting to perform on that set with my Dad and making stuff Fleischer out like we'd always discussed.

Well, Here ya go with one last adventure...  SEASON Finale JJ Abrams

Thank you so much for all of your hard work during the movie. You are amazing. You brought all of our wacky ideas and dreams to life and onto the big screen in a major way. I couldn't have asked for anything more. I'm grateful I got a chance to work with you and get to know you. I hope we can do it again in the future...with even more MONEY! My deepest gratitude your way, man. Kirk

Bobby wow! You are an amazingly creative scout! I gotta say that out of all the cities I contacted today for various scripts that your photos were the best by far. I can't tell you how much all of us here at Smuggler appreciate you scouting for us today! You really did not have to do this, but the results were amazing! Now we just have to get the job awarded! If for some reason we don't get it, I will try put you in contact with the production company who shoots this job in the hopes that they will use you as a scout and Austin as a city! Can't wait to show my director. I really hope that he's as impressed as I am. Thanks again so much for your time. -Kali* SMUGGLER
