David Gillam, the director of Borderlines Film Festival, had a sneak preview of Soul Searcher this week. He said it was “amazing – much better than it’s any right to be”. As a result he’s decided to kick off the whole festival with it, having a screening on the opening night, March 18th, and a matinee the following day complete with a little talk from me.
Andrew’s work on the animated train smoke has been held up due to a corrupt file, but I’ve finally seen a still of it and it looks really nice. The trick will be integrating it convincingly into the live action without it looking like Who Framed Roger Rabbit?
After a weird week in the Hairy Ford on a corporate job, I’m now back on the case with the foley pre-mixing, which has now reached the scintillating stage of adding reverb. The other day I had a play with Apple’s Soundtrack software, which lets you create songs by sticking a bunch of samples from a library together. In five minutes I whipped up a cheesy drum and bass track for the scene where Joe walks past a nightclub.
