I’m aiming for picture lock on June 11th. It’s a little scary but it’s about time. I know there will be at least one more test screening before then (June 8th, Gloucester University) and am hoping to squeeze in a couple more.
Jon Hayes and I have been searching for model Mustangs to use for the miniature sequence. The closest we’ve found so far is a 1:18 scale ’71 Mach One perfect in every respect save for its hard top roof. If we can’t find a soft top one, Jon will have to butcher this. Work cannot truly get underway on the top secret vehicle without the Mustang, as we need ensure the scales match.
Other areas of FX work are not going anywhere very fast. I’ve been let down a couple of times and a lot of people have seemed interested but never got round to sending me their showreels.
AJ introduced me to a guy named Kevin McDonagh, who is keen to take on the marketing and publicity work for Soul Searcher as well as trying to raise further finance. We’ve met a couple of times and he’s currently busy putting together an investment proposal.
