I've been hiding out for most of the winter. I gave birth to a baby girl at the beginning of January and have taken some time off to care for her. It's been an amazing time getting to know my little person, and my film's been going on the back burner the whole time. As the weather warms up, it's time to get it in high gear again! The good news is that a lot has happened since I last checked in.
One of the biggest pieces of news is that I was awarded at RACC (Regional Arts and Culture Council) grant to finish this project. Funds from that were allocated to higher-quality color for the illustrations and bringing on a more experienced documentary editor to finish up the story.
The other big piece of news is that the posters are done. I just got back from seeing proofs, and I'm really happy with them!
Right now, I'm working with a rough cut that has the final structure. We're still tweaking the pacing and working on music to see how it all fits together. I'm also waiting on motion design to come in. Once we have all that locked, it's off to do a sound mix and THAT'S THE LAST STEP.
