Unintentional repetition of imagery between new and old, The Gift (left) and To Build A Home (right)
Remember ‘The Gift’?
Probably not, but apparently it’s a short film long in the making with an amazingly insightful blog HERE.
News is that the edit is now LOCKED, and while I’ll always have reservations and a yearning to reshoot and tinker indefinitely, it works fine, not least because I’ve had enough and want to go outside and play now please mummy. I’ve given myself until the end of this week to crack on with the conform, wrap the effects shots ready for a grade next month at Smoke & Mirrors and sort out an OMF to hand over to Anna at Attic for sound mixing, once she’s back from Laos … alright for some!
So there are still time consuming processes to go through, but it’s exciting after a year and a half of fucking about, and time it moved on to the next stages, or at least off the sofa and out of the living room.
You might think the above image is a still of a ‘troubled’ Kate Dickie, but in fact it’s a pretty accurate representation of me in ‘edit mode’ having not left the sofa/cut my hair/blinked/eaten/taken my hormones.
Exciting (ish) wee something to (hopefully) accompany the (eventual) screening of The Gift (possibly) – a short I’m making with fellow Hastinger Scott Garrett.
We’ve got Matt Berry (see below) recording a monologue for us today, cracking stuff.
