Patience is a virtue!

All good things come to those who wait!

It's been months, and you've all been waiting patiently for an update.... so here you go!

The film is in the grade as we speak - and the visual effects are almost done!  We're due for completion in just 5 weeks - but here are some stills straight from the grade to tantalise your tastebuds!

Watch this space for more information, more photos and the new website coming soon!

In the Mix at last.

So, we're nearing the finishing post and currently in the sound mix.  Pavol our fabulous sound designer and Jered our very talented composer have been busy squirrelling away on the film in a dark dubbing theatre for five days - and the end is in sight, which is great for us, but not for the local coffee house - which we have been keeping the caffeine levels at an appropriate level.

Meanwhile Leo Costa and his team of helpers are busy creating the visual effects - including ripples in water, compositing green screens and creating dust and debris.  

More info coming soon!

Picture Locked!

So, we have finished the first hurdle - we have picture locked the film. Hurrah! 

Chloe and Dave have been slaving away for weeks in a dark room and its safe to say its looking great. 

But don't start leaping to find the nearest screening just yet - thats just one small part of the post production process! 

We're now in the track laying period - where Pavol Kajan our trusty sound designer is getting to grips with the sound design - digging up war sounds, bombs and explosions.

All that hard work fits into just 8 cans! 
Meanwhile - I dropped off the rolls of film with our friends at  Deluxe Digital to be scanned ready for the VFX work to take place.  

Keep popping back for more updates.

It's all gone quiet!

Hello people! 

Its all been a bit quiet since the shoot  -  after all that hard work we all had a little bit of summer holiday to recover and now we're back! Hurrah!

So - update on the film - Chloe, our wonderful editor is busy editing the film at the moment - and last week we had the pleasure of seeing the first cut. I've got to say (though i might be a bit biased!) that the film is starting to take shape - and it's looking amazing!

For those of you who don't know about post production process - its going to be some time before you get to see the finished film  - we still have the edit, sound track lay, visual effects, mix and grade to do - so it'll be at least december before we're finished. 

That said, we'll give you regular updates on the progress - and I might even sneak some photos up too!

Months to build, days to destroy

for those of you have been following this blog - you all know how long it took us to make our set - with all the love and hard work (thank you art department volunteers!!) it still took almost 2 months to build. But all good things come to and end... and just three days after we wrapped - it was like we were never there.

For all of you who enjoyed reading the blog - do not fear! I will still be updating it in the coming months to let you all know how the film is getting on going through post, and coming soon I will be posting the official production stills.
