Wanted to make sure we got everyone caught up with our progress, which in some departments is swift and steady, and others are slow but steady. Nature of making this ambitious film.
We have finished the soundtrack for the film! Our music composer Alexander Arntzen did an amazing job. In the next couple weeks, we will be bringing on people to record live instruments! It will greatly enhance the score and give it a richness that synth instruments just cant do.
We also have finished ADR with all the actors! Every actor had two or three lines where the audio could have been better, and now that everyone’s finished, it will sound smooth and seamless. Our sound designer Jordan King works regularly doing ADR with studios like Disney and Dreamworks, so we are in good hands 🙂
Perks are very close to being finished shipping. We have just started shipping $75 and up, and ordered most of the materials for all the perks. Please keep in mind as some people already receiving their perks were confused, that the DVD of the movie will be sent out only after the movie has released on YouTube.
The slow part is visual effects. It’s always the slow part. The director has made movies with visual effects before and it is always the last part to be finished. Don’t get us wrong, our team is hard at work getting the visual effects done and are excited to see it all come together. While there is a chance it will delay our release of the film, we are still hustling to get it done by the end of the year. No matter what happens, our priority is to make the best film possible in all departments. And what we have so far is nothing short of exciting, so we hope you guys will think the same.
We’re still awe struck that with our little teaser trailer, so many conventions have already asked us to be a part of their programs! November 1st at 1:30pm, room 515B, you can find the cast and crew on a panel at Comikaze in Los Angeles!
November 14th if you are in Atlanta, come find us at CONjuration! We will have a panel with the cast and will be mingling all day with fellow potterheads!
We have a full slot set up for next year and will be setting up a page just for conventions schedule, so keep an eye out for that!
Also keep an eye on our facebook page for regular updates, and keep an eye out for the 2nd and final trailer! When it is released, it will have the release date of the film 😉
Mischief in the process of being managed!
