Hello to all our incredible supporters!
I apologize for not updating more frequently. But it’s for good reason, we’ve been super busy with post-production the past few months and I’m so happy to announce that we have a full rough cut of the film! The runtime is 1 hour and 18 minutes, not including the credits and a handful of exterior shots we plan to pick up this winter.
This week, we’ll be sending the cut to Colin, our sound editor, to start mixing the audio. Our composer, Raymond, has been working on music samples over the past few weeks and he should now be able to really flesh out the score. And, of course, our visual effects artist, Steven, will start working on the title sequence and other effects that need to be done throughout the film. The final step will be color correction. We still have a long road ahead of us, but the fact that it’s cut together and all the footage worked out is such a dream come true for me. It looks amazing & the actors’ performances are just phenomenal. I cannot thank my crew and cast enough for making this film not only happen but a film to be proud of; and I cannot wait to share it with all of you!
We aim to have a teaser cut by September and a full trailer by late October. By February, we hope to have the full final cut and be able to have the cast, crew & backer premiere. Then maybe we’ll have a private screening for anonymous audience feedback. Once April hits, we’ll start submitting to festivals, most notably my dream festival, the Toronto International Film Festival. After the film premieres at a festival, we’ll be able to send all the $25 or higher backers their DVD’s and other rewards.
In the meantime though, we’ll try to share exclusive footage, videos and photos with you through the rest of the process. Thank you again so much for your generosity & support, as well as your patience throughout the completion of this film! We could not have made this happen without every single one of you.
While you’re waiting to see footage, you can check out some of the things we’ve been sharing on our Facebook page, like stills from the film! Also, I’ve been doing a few interviews lately. This is a New York-based podcast where I talk about the crazy things that happened during production and what’s been happening in post, Listen Here. If you never got a chance to listen to my first interview on the show during the Kickstarter campaign, here it is. Also, this is a great article from the local paper near where we shot in Chatham. We were the cover story!
Thanks again for everything, and I’ll try to keep the updates coming!
