POST COMPLETE

After four days of Post at Splice last week all the post work is now complete on the documentary. I have to say a big thanks to Splice who have been amazing to work with. Here is a picture from the sound mixing studio which has the most colourful mixing desk ever. Nag, the dubbing mixer, showed me how it looks in test mode where all the lights come on and flash different colours! Amazing.

Now that post is complete we still need to export the film onto an HD Master and also for downloadable digital files and for DVD, which will be done this week.

Exciting times.

COLOUR GRADING

Started grading (colour correction) at Splice TV in east London yesterday.

Here is a pic of the studio. This suite apparently costs a cool £100,000 on its own. Worth every penny though, the control you have over the image is incredible.

POST

The film is finished and I am going into the post production studio to begin grading (color correcting) tomorrow. Very much looking forward to it - I'm sure we are going to make it look great. Next week is Audio Mixing and Online.

I will post some pictures from inside the studio.

Initial Designs

Here are some of the first design ideas we had for the DVD cover. We wanted to play around with using a strong colour as a background and compare that to a straight black background. Also we tried out a couple of different images and different ways of placing the text. In the end I think Joe (the graphic designer) has done a great job of playing with the text of the title and laying it out and also choosing a font that work really well.


The designs are going great and we are going to do some bags and TShirts also - budget permitting.

Thoughts welcome.
