First cut COMPLETE!


Thank you for all of your pleasant comments! We appreciate the support, for sure.

Our editor David Patrick Lowery and Yen have completed the first cut!!!! It's 87 minutes long, not including titles or end credits. They're going to tweak it for the next 3 weeks, and should have a fine cut done by Dec 15th.

Speaking of cutting, we SHOULD have a new, pimped-out trailer to post on the site in about 2 weeks, if all goes as planned.

Yesterday I met with our new music supervisor, Glen Walsh. He's a commercial music supervisor here in Los Angeles, and he's really freakin cool!

More to come very soon!

Update from Post Production

Hello! It's been a while, but we're well on our way to a wonderful film. Yen is ACTUALLY EXCITED ABOUT THE EDITING PROCESS! That means the film's going to be amazing. Right now, having cut a few extraneous scenae, the cut is looking to be short and sweet, around 80-85 minutes. They're about 65 minutes onto it so far, and we're planning on having a solidly locked cut done by January 15th! Not only that, but the goal is to have the sound mix and tape-to-tape color correction completed by March 1st! If we pull that off, it'll be less than 5 months between wrapping production and a final sound and picture cut! At that point we'll enter Cannes, Venice, Toronto, etc, and start raising funds for the 35mm screener prints. That's right, we're going to go all the way to 35mm!

Our sound designer, Sam Casas, has officially agreed to come on board, and we're currently looking for a few other post peeps, most importantly an effects house to help us out with some image stabilization and cleanup.

Hope you're all well.
