I hope you all enjoy the constraints that are up for voting for the Halloween Film. There are some pretty fun ones (I personally like “one character must bite another character”) and I know Ryan is really excited to direct this one.
While you are all voting on the next constraints, everyone here is hard at work on Defenseless: Part One, which premieres on the first of September. The post-production process for this movie consists of five parts: Editing, Visual FX, Color Correction, Sound Design, Sound Mixing, and Music.
Alex and I locked the edit of the second “reel” on Thursday, which meant that David Sims could begin his work on color correction. Ryan McDuffie and Daniel Clark had already been hard at work at doing sound design on the first reel, in fact as I sit here writing Ryan is across from me with his headphones on, working away on the car chase.
Meanwhile, I’ve been here at my computer corresponding with our tirelessly devoted composer for the film, Bryan Ricker. For those keeping count, he and I have now exchanged 25 emails as he deals with my little tweaks to each of the five tracks of music (totaling over nine minutes) he has had less than a week to produce for this film.
In between those emails, Alex and I have been doing some re-writes for Defenseless: Part Two, which will continue in full swing as soon as Part One releases. This is, indeed, our most ambitious and epic film yet–traits that I feel match the constraints that you all voted on. They were a very challenging set of constraints, and this continues to be a very challenging film. Everyone has poured themselves into it and risen to the occasion, and I think you will enjoy the finished product. We’ve had a lot of fun on this movie, we’re excited for part two, and we can’t wait to see what you decide for the Halloween Film.
