I must say it’s very exciting to see it all coming together.
Before I left Toronto on Tuesday I delivered the rough cut and I love the direction the movie is headed. I guess, what I’ve learned recently is that really, at the core, this is a film about “the little team that could”. And part of why the film is also looking so wonderful is that there have been amazing people working on it.
In the next few days I will get the profiles up for people who have been working both behind and in front of the camera. But, for me, this project has attracted great, creative, giving people and, as a result I think the film is about a little team that could by a little team that could.
Next step: Fine Cut.
In the next couple of weeks we’ll have a fine cut together. I think most of the original music should be in and most of the VFX will be roughed in too. We should have all of our footage by then (expecting some archival Super 8 and 16mm to arrive next week from Dr. DeLaurier and his co-creator Jerry Harris).
A rough cut also means that it’s time to get started on the paperwork, revised spending, budgets, cost reports and deliverables…oh well.
The end is in sight! And with it, a new beginning!
