A lengthy, intense process it has been but we’re delighted to have reached this stage. Massive thanks go out to editor Callum Warrender – his skills, dedication, imagination and patience are something to behold.
The Picture-Locked cut is now in the hands of our Colourist Tony Moore, as post-production moves to the next vital stage. We’ll keep you posted.

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.
