Oy, mates! Just had a totally wicked weekend! Chris Haigh, our soundtrack composer, was in New York City with his family on a vacation! For you blokes who haven't been keeping tabs, Chris is from South Yorkshire, England!!
We've been collaboraing over email and IM since we met on the 'net since we met half a year ago! This was our first time meeting in person and it was totally sorted!
We had lunch on friday, dinner in Little Italy on Saturday, did a crew interview this morning at the Nickelodeon offices, and had breakfast in the Viacom cafeteria. We managed to get some good discussion in about the soundtrack composition and its role in the film. Chris' brother Dave is proper cool and so are his parents! Good to see you Chris! Hope you got home ok!!
Had a really productive editing weekend! Completed the roughcut for a couple of cool scenes...Thought I'd post some stills from them for you to see.
The main sequences I started on were ones that revealed the rogue programmer, his employer, and his "pet" sexbot. That lead straight into the first confrontation scene with the soldiers of D9.
It was great to be interacting with the footage again because the raw clips always bring you back to the fun you had during shooting!
Hey guys, here's another WIP update on Andrew's police carrier.
We've done a test composite here on the bg plate and I added some glowing after burner effect. (The bg plate is a photo taken from the offices here at MTV!)
This isn't a clip from the final film, but just another test.
Andrew's work is awesome and I love his attention to detail!

Jeez, it takes freaking forever to log video! We had roughly 10 hours of video to go thru and log. Just started editing the first scene: the locker room.
sorry it's been quiet here for a while here are some progress report notes...
The editing process has begun!! We've also just done our own video press junket for the making-of documentaries and some video blogs we're working on!
All video is captured on my PC and I'm in the process of reviewing and logging all the video. Since we shot completely out of sequence, things are all over the place. Everytime I think I have a scene cut together, I realize I have more coverage and cooler angle or performance from the actor(s). I'm assembling the film using Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects. I've tried a couple basic visual effects to make sure I know what I need to know. It's been a while since I've done editing and fx work, and this is by far the largest project I've worked on, so hope it goes well!
this winter weather in NYC/NJ is a nasty! I'm back from my rest & recovery week in Florida, and back at work! I started editing the rough cut of the film and am beginning to ramp up post-production. I was up till 3am editing (in NJ) and had to be here in the city by 10am. I'm getting tired again!
Hopefully will have CGI artist and 3D effects work up and running soon... Will try to post screenshots from our shoot as well as some behind-the-scenes photos. For all that detail in the Director's blog entries, people are still screaming for photos! I will get them to you!!
It's the first week of post-production!!Â
I just posted all the production blogs from last week and back-dated them so each blog entry represents its respective shooting day. Check it out. I'll post screen captures as soon as I can. (I'm trying to recover on vacation now ;) The dailies look great and I can't wait to edit! More next week...
