As I wait for the final file to process, so I can take it down to the mastering facility, I'm reflecting on the last year....
At the end of this week (hopefully) I will have the master and DVD's done and the film will now be able to go out into the world! WOW! We are there.
What a year it has been. Winter arrives on Wednesday, and this time last year I was in heavy pre production looking forward to the shoot. Now its all behind us!
I also have been thinking about all the generous people that have helped me. People that have gone the extra mile to make this happen. Those that were on the crew and have helped since we finished shooting. Those actors that invested 150% into their roles to play the characters with such heart and humanity. The students and friends that played extras in such extreme weather conditions and call times. The composers, musicians and engineers that gave more than I could buy. The people that made cakes, let me shoot at their premises, lent me musical instruments and different props. The people that gave me advice, helped me with paperwork, watched the edits and commented passionately. Everyone that has 'liked' the Fb page showing me that there is interest in this little film. The industry people that have encouraged me to be brave! (Going to the American Film Market was one of those examples!)
My PhD supervisors that have been there every step of the way supporting this project. And lastly, MV who has lived with this project in our home for the last year.
It's exciting to be at this point, and looking forward to the next phase!
