It’s been a while since I posted an update on Wait For Me, but we are finally on the last leg. The other week we did some ADR where the actors recorded various takes of lines, heavy breathing, grunts and yells. This will then be mixed when we start sound design in the next week as we start to put the final touches on the film.
In order to get the cold, hazy, winter look I envisioned, this is the basic process these shots go through.
Then, repeat for the next 100 shots….
The first rough edit was completed today! Granted, there are a lot of place holders as we still have a whole unit to shoot. I am very excited to see it start to take form and watch my vision transpire onto the screen. We are looking to shoot the “Summer Unit” within the coming months so stay posted for some more behind the scenes updates as well as some insights from the editing room.
After months of prep and planning I am finally back out there, behind the camera, working on my new short film! It’s been a goal of mine for several years now to get back into directing, and it’s with this big leap I am happy to say it is finally happening.
Of course, the project is nothing short of ambitious. It’s a Word War II short that I like to describe as a visual poem. Production began in late March, and will run on and off through May. All the while working on intense post production with an aim for a summer release.
