As we progress the Colour-grade (begun in Glasgow, now happening in Stratford-upon-Avon) we have now moved on to work in detail on the sound editing and final design for Riptide.
Dan Johnson, who was dubbing mixer on both The Inheritance and The Space Between, has taken charge of the sound editing & design in London. The challenge is to sensitively and imaginatively portray the experience of schizophrenia within the parametres of a piece of drama. We’re excited to hear what he comes up with!

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…
MOVING PICTURES
2015 was pretty incredible for Lyre, with ongoing DVD sales of our 2 feature films, plenty of script development, plus new shoots throughout Scotland.
It was a privilege collaborating with new crew and creating original work.

The rewards come when going through the rushes in the edit. Quality results time and again.
This year looks set to keep the run going, and we cannot wait to get the kit out.
So we wish you all a truly Happy New Year! May 2016 bring adventure and opportunity and reward.

September saw us filming with the marvellous David Whitney, who joined our set to play psychiatrist Dr Lloyd.
Also welcomed on set were A/C Steven Cook and sound man Paul Hartmann.
We shot at Henry’s Cellar Bar, the famous Edinburgh music venue.
Here’s some images, photographed by the amazing Thomas Morgan.
So the 69th Edinburgh International Film Festival has passed and after a whole load of films, talks, seminars, meetings, dinners & drinks receptions, I can finally make sense of what’s happened…
I was invited to participate in the Ideas Lab – a collaboration between EIFF and the Wellcome Trust involving 10 scientists and 10 screenwriters. The aim was to connect and gain inspiration from the latest scientific developments in order to develop film ideas.
The plan worked! Seminars, presentations, discussions and debates were followed by drinks, dinners and panel-based talks.
We toured biochemistry and 3-D printing labs at Heriot Watt university.

Healthy debate and much food for thought.
As well as the lab, I saw 13 films.
Highlights include the heartbreaking and brilliant AMY, plus the gorgeously-shot & surprising Australian thriller CUT SNAKE, the brilliant DOPE which had the best soundtrack, Scott Graham’s beautiful IONA and the stunning NORFOLK – my favourite film of the festival.
Full of inspiration & gratitude.
Now there’s many scripts to write & much work to do.
In February we were shooting the latest segment of UNF.
4 days in a flat on Leith Walk. 3 actors, 7 crew.
Here’s a couple of images from the shoot, snapped by the ultra-talented Thomas Morgan.
It’s been a busy start to 2015!
Lyre and our comrades at Dotbot were commissioned by people in California to create a film detailing the system of money / debt in the US economy.
With a fantastic cast & crew we shot at Summerhall over one January weekend.
Ahead of the film’s release, here’s some images by ace lighting man / photographer Thomas Morgan.

£4,023 was raised which enables us to complete the shooting of our new feature.
The support has been amazing. Messages of encouragement have been coming in for the last 35 days. This week we’ll be busy sending out rewards to the people who contributed.
It’s been a rewarding, happy campaign – a great chance to explain to people the film we’re making & why. Now, we’re planning the next stage of the shooting in January. Much work to do.
THANK YOU PEOPLE !!
Love, light, peace X

 

Hallo!
Shooting has begun on our new feature – a road movie love story. JACOB adjusts to his new life in the city. EVA is the secret daughter of Ingmar Bergman. They collide into each others’ world.
Whilst telling an entertaining story, this film aims to celebrate the hope, humour & inspiration of people with schizophrenia, and shed some light on this psychiatric disorder.
For 3 years I’ve been conducting research, and examining the responsibilities that lie with filmmakers. Advice & thoughts of Professor Stephen Lawrie have been invaluable.
“The arts, and film in particular, have a role in reducing the stigmatization of mental illness, and they provide opportunities to hear stories about mental illness in a way that corrects the myths and stereotypes people have about these conditions.”
Professor Stephen Lawrie, Head of Psychiatry, University of Edinburgh

Privileged to say that work has begun on our new project. Keeping it quiet just now, but after 7 days shooting we’re immensely excited at the potential of this new film.
The team are fantastic. The footage looks stunning. Further details will follow here!
