Production is over and the premiere is a distant pinpoint of light on the horizon, but between here and there is the dreaded POSTPRODUCTION PROCESS!
Okay, maybe that’s being a little dramatic. The truth is that a huge portion of the filmmaking process is in the details of editing, effects work, music, sound design and ADR. So Matt and myself (Brian) have been working on taking the rough edit of the movie and fine-tuning it to be the best it can be. We’re lengthening and shortening shots and scenes, making sure the movie flows as well as possible and that each and every moment plays as good as it can.
Needless to say, we’re spending lots of time alone in a dark basement. At the same time, though, we’re working with some hugely talented people to create a full soundtrack and sound effects track for the movie. Plus we’re bringing in all the actors to re-record specific lines of dialogue and make the movie sound as good as it can.
But I’d say we’re 80% through the process, and the result is spectacular. I can’t wait to show everyone the finished movie…on the big screen.
