That’s a wrap !

Posted: February 19, 2018 in Uncategorized

Following 2 days of filming last weekend we are excited to announce that we have now wrapped on our film RIPTIDE !!

Days 27 & 28 saw us shooting at a hospital and working with a wonderful crew and brilliant actors, all marshaled superbly by 1st AD Christopher L Cook. As always we’re profoundly grateful for the imagination, drive, vision & tenacity of our cinematographer Robbie Jones.

A unique filming odyssey has now ended. Editing is going great – we’re close to locking picture, then we’ll focus on the sound design. Followed by publicity drive, premieres, festival run, screenings, Q & A’s, events, gigs. Can’t wait.

Thanks for following our story so far. It’s getting real exciting now.

RIPTIDE

… is the title of our new film. The one we’ve been shooting since 2014. The one we’ve been editing for 18 months. The one we’re so close to locking Picture on. It fits, it’s right, and I can’t wait to bring it to cinema screens.

In the Editing Trenches

Posted: February 26, 2017 in Uncategorized
We put the first UNF assembly together and then we created the roughcut and now we’re doing the hard yards of fine-tuning, constantly considering the big questions: Is this scene right? Is that scene too long? Is the story clear? Is it dragging? Does the film make sense?
It’s tough in the editing trenches. Vision becomes tunneled. We have license to experiment, but deadlines to hit. So glad to be following our amazing editor Callum Warrender through the maze.
Progress is good. The latest cut runs at 93 mins. Some sections are wonderful. Our music tracks are ace. The cinematography is dreamy, imaginative and beautiful. Many risks we took are paying off. Often I can glimpse the final film, and that makes everything worthwhile.
I’ll report back once we have Picture-Lock.

2017 …

A new year, new ideas and inspiration, new impetus to work on UNF and finish the film this year. We have a roughcut (that’s under 2 hours!) and are gradually refining. Footage shot in November has been added and looks fantastic, especially the boxing. Thanks to the good people at Lochend Boxing Club in Leith. Callum the editor and I will keep chipping away until Picture-lock, and are liaising with sound magicians about exciting soundscapes and auditory hallucinations.
We’ll keep you posted. Hope it’s been a great beginning to 2017.
Since she’s just had a new showreel cut, it’s a good time to introduce our leading lady on UNF. Elspeth Turner is a Scottish actor and performer, who trained and worked in New York City. She has an extensive background in theatre, and we’re honoured to have her lead our cast.
Here’s her reel, cut by the talented Chris Cook, and scored by a brilliant track from Mairi Campbell and Dave Gray.
And there’s some footage from UNF…

Editing UNF

Posted: January 20, 2016 in Uncategorized
January has been generous thus far. We’ve been editing in Glasgow with the brilliant Callum Warrender and making great progress. It’s immensely satisfying to discover that what we planned in pre-production and when shooting succeeds brilliantly in the edit. Plenty of single-take scenes!
We’re on track to complete a roughcut by Spring, and then the fine-tuning will begin.
Already we’re adding music – original compositions by the fantastic Mairi Campbell & Dave Gray, Fiona Rutherford, and Philip Pinsky – and experimenting with sound. The story is becoming clearer as we cut, and the tone is very pleasing.
We’ll keep everyone updated with progress, and a few images! All news will be posted here first.
