Post Production takes time aka DON’T WORRY, WHEN IT IS DONE WE WILL LET YOU KNOW!
Generally the process of assembling the film and post-production isn’t part of the excitement of filmmaking. It’s probably because “post” just isn’t as sexy as production. You don’t have all of action that goes along with the actors, crew, fun, food, frivolity but post is a HUGE part of the process of movie making. Many people, many months, many stages must be completed in order to distribute a film and GIRLTRASH: ALL NIGHT LONG is no different. We are currently in our second month of editing the picture. Alex, the director spends her days with Chris Hill, the editor, going over shots, selecting takes, choosing the best performances, creating meaningful moments and telling the story.
Generally, the editor will begin to assemble the film while it is still shooting. A couple of weeks after the production wraps, the director will begin the process of working with the editor. A director is generally given about ten weeks to re-cut the editor’s assembly. Then the producers come in and begin the note process. Then, the director and editor take those notes to bring the final film into focus. They cut, massage, cut, re-massage until the producers sign off on the picture. They call this a “picture lock.”
You might think that is the end but then the real fun begins. It could take months to do all the final polishing work that goes into the completion of a film. Sound work (including dialogue clean up, foley, ADR, sound FX, sound design, scoring, recording, and mixing) color correction, online transfer, title design are just some of the many steps still needed to complete a film. This final stage of the film still doesn’t get it out to the viewers. It is followed by the time and work needed to find distribution so everyone can finally it!
GIRLTRASH: All Night Long is currently being cut by the director and editor. They are working on the director’s cut. We have seen the editor’s assemblage of the picture (and laughed our asses off because the story is so damn good.) We are all excited and can hardly wait to see how great it will be with all of the other elements in place. Songs are being considered as background music and the film is developing into the story that Angela Robinson wanted to tell. Photos are being shot for the poster, more songs are being written for the film. We will be doing a few re-shoots and pick-ups too. Lots more to be done, lots. Anticipated completion date: end of 2010.
So 2011, we start will film festivals and go from there. Stay tuned. You’ll be the first to know!
