Again, my apologies for the late update but in my defence, I have been busy.
After Cannes I trimmed the film down to under one hundred minutes, this seems to be the length the market requires and I must say the film does go at quite a lick now which is no bad thing.
I showed the film in Cutting Copy (Rough) form to Ray Winstone last week and he was thrilled even though he saw no VFX shots and was listening to the temp score both of which in final form will enhance the film greatly.
There is a lot still to do.
Ray is coming in to do his ADR in the next couple of weeks, which completes sound preparations once it has been fitted.
The Visual FX Shots are looking great, they’re not all done yet but we’re getting there.
Unfortunately we have had to push back the Music Recording as some of the musicians Guy wants for the score are on holiday, a bit of a nightmare but I understand it because a John Barry like score needs great musicians to put life into the music.
So we are having to schedule the finishing of the film around the recording of the music score which will mean Final Mixing the films Soundtrack either the first (I hope) or second week in September.
Work in all other areas will continue concurrently and we are planning to have a 35mm Print – Mid September I hope – to screen to Distributors in London.
Thankfully, interest in the film is high and I remain confident in a positive result in terms of the UK sale and other sales going forward.
Once the Distributor screening has been done I will screen the film to all Wardour investors in the West End followed by a little party! – This will probably be at the end of September so hopefully you’ll all be back from holiday – I’ll let you know dates in good time.
Finally, thanks again for your patience, we’re getting close to the end and I look forward to seeing you all soon.
