The intro to this video gives the short story, but if you want the long story go check out the script post of Houseboat On Terror Lake.
After we’d given up on the Kickstarter and polished the script as best as we could, we didn’t know what else to do with Houseboat. Luckily, a few of us involved had just worked on a movie with a musician who was interning at a studio in Nashville. He said he could get us in to play some music for free, and he shows up on sax in this video.
I’ve played drums since I was about 12, and in our group we had a bassist and guitarist, so we thought why not make the official Houseboat On Terror Lake theme song? I then mixed footage from the studio with some test footage we shot (with guts falling out!) and some video from an actual houseboat on an actual lake (which belonged to a friend of a friend) to make this video.
It’s goofy, it’s fun, and it’s exactly the vibe the movie will have, when we someday make it and win a lot of awards and money.
