First a little update. Mike Whissell and I met with Toronto foley artist, Devin O'Haire last Monday and had a good in-depth discussion about what the film needs and how we can give it the finished polish we're looking for. Things are looking up. And it's game on. Together, the three of us laid out the ground-work for a solid timeline to finish the film completely -- picture, sound, everything. I won't tell you exactly what that timeline is, because anything can change and we won't compromise the finish of the film if it means taking more time. However, we have what we believe is a solid time-line to complete William's Lullaby with certain milestones to hit along the way.
Foley will begin in about a week. For those of you reading this who are unaware about the process of Foley in film, I found this interesting video from my alma mater Vancouver Film School explaining it all. It's quite fascinating the amount of work that goes into sound design and creating everything that you hear in a film. Even a drama. We'll be venturing into this soon. Take a look. Or a "listen":
Second thing I wanted to do in this blog was provide access to some of the amazing write-ups that have been done about us in the last couple of weeks. Buzz is slowly but surely starting to build and people are beginning to hear about William's Lullaby from different sources of information. And there's plenty more to come. This is just the beginning.
