I will never finish this entry, so here are some cool things going on with the film. I can’t write prose right now, so here is a laundry list.
1. Atlanta Horror Film Fest happened on Oct. 27th, and it was a cool intimate venue with the hardcore fans showing up and a real mellow guy running it named Eric. They also showed Blood Scrub, the previous short I’d made, and that was kind. A good response from the crowd despite there STILL being some foley missing, but this was the first time I felt the film looked like it should and the sound mix kicked ass if I do say so myself. I am so glad I looped this film, the voices sound so awesome. The production track suffered from bad acoustics and just the basic headaches of shooting on location. The film once sounded like a stage play, now it sounds like a movie. I hope to never have to do that again though. It was the most difficult and tedious thing I’ve ever had to do for a movie.
2. I’m happy with how the movie is progressing. There are still some things to do. Yesterday I produced a super cheap brain spray effect and laid it into the film. Also I reframed some troublesome shots and added some more zombie blood. I have a few more sound effects to add, but we’re talking under ten, and making the chicken voice louder in the last scene. But the most time consuming thing will be finishing the end credits because so many people helped out and I’m a terrible speller.
3. About to send the film out to some more festivals, so keep an eye out on the websites screening page.
