… finally completed! Big thank you to James for helping us out with the shoot on the day. There should be another few hours left for post production work and then we’re good to go for submitting it to 2013 Fastnet Film Festival!

Looks like things have been pretty quiet on the site for the past while, ‘You Know the Words‘ is still in post production limbo but with Fastnet Film Festival’s Call For Entries starting soon I’m hoping to finish it just in time before the deadline closes.

Dump‘ is still in Pre-Production phase, I’m still working on the storyboards which is helping to flesh out a lot of details in the script. Here’s a quick screencap of how some of them are looking:

We’ve also re-recorded ‘Beast of Bath‘, we brought two actors Cathal O’Donovan and Sarah Maloney to record dialogue at a professional recording studio ( my living room ).

As opposed to making an animation, we’re naturally going to go with a diorama instead. Here’s some test footage we’ve prepped up for it.

Editing You Know the Words is still ongoing but I’ve reached the important milestone of finally getting around to finishing the opening credit music and adding it to the edit. The film is now likely going to have a running time of about 7 to 7:30 minutes, with the juxtaposition of cuts being almost finished, the next large portion of work will go into audio work and grading. So far it’s looking pretty good but there is still tonnes left more to do.

We’ve just recently finished writing the first draft of ‘Dump’ and added Fabian Sweeney to the writing team. A considerable amount of time has been put into discussing and improving every aspect of the original script treatment in order to make it work, with Fabian’s input we’ve ended up being a lot closer to having a solid script!

In the meantime a lot still needs to be done, new equipment is being purchased, storyboards still need to be finished, many test shots need to be taken and we’ve have yet to finalise the cast but all in all it’s looking pretty good so far!

I’ve recently invested in a Wacom tablet for the purpose of storyboarding films and just doodling around for fun. The script is still being worked on but that doesn’t stop me from storyboarding some scenes. Production could either start in November or December depending how confident we are with the script. Anyway, here are two relatively spoiler free sketches of ‘Dump’:

I decided to sit down with Cethan last night to start the ignition for the next film starring that furry little wonder, Milton. With two laptops on the table, plate full of waffles, several cups of tea and an opened bottle of Sherry we loaded up a shared Google document to shape our next film.

The film is currently being rewritten from scratch, we’re using the treatment that I had written two months prior as a story guideline, thankfully it’s preventing us from writing ourselves into any corners. Cethan is doing a fantastic job with the dialogue, not much was kept from the treatment but then again dialogue is not one of my strongest suits. There are a lot more subtle nuances thrown into film as well and minor characters now seem more interesting.

So far the collaborative process of writing a script through Google docs has worked fantastically well, as a result being able to write and edit the same document at the same time we managed to produce 4 scenes in the space of two hours. At this pace we hope to get the first draft done by the end of the week if not by Monday.

Other news, Flipping Channels has won the 3rd Mutant Shorts film competition, a big thanks to everyone involved in the film to make it possible. I noticed that the version that was screened at the event had some audio and video compression issues, these should be fixed by the time the film is uploaded to the site within the next two weeks.
