The Last Post is finished!
One pleasant task that had to be undertaken during the mix was to get the actor Mark Heap to re-record a single line of dialogue . Mark was fresh from his holiday in the Lake District and was such a joy to have in the sound booth that we got him to do a few more little things as well - all of which we were able to use. I have been so lucky to have this wonderful actor in my film.
With the film now completed the task is now to manage the release. Samantha Waite, the producer, had great success with her last film - which went all the way to the Oscars - so I will be largely guided by her advice. If you are wondering if the film is any good I am too close to tell you but I can say this: I am very excited about showing this film to an audience and there is a bit of a buzz about it.. I think the film is a timely little satire about the effect of social media and the Internet on emotional development and I think we have a real chance of getting in to some of the big festivals. The cast and crew screening is taking place this Saturday at the Electric Cinema on Portobello Road but the 80 or so invited guests probably know the project too well for it to be a 'pure' screening (and incidentally it is NOT the premiere - calling it that would ruin our chances of getting in to some big festivals..)
