Can’t quite believe we’ve just returned from Mull, it felt like we’d spent half our lifetime there and then all of a sudden we’re back in the grey bleak metropolis of . Everything feels a little cramped and sped up just now and where has the sky gone?! What’s more the energy has been sapped from Liz and I and we find ourselves gawping more than usual at each other with very little to say. Having just come back from a lunch with Rain we’re reassured to find her in the same state and eating more food than ever. Seems we can’t drop the routine established in Mull of eating every 2 hours (and even during the night sometimes).
Return from Mull
December 21, 2008 by Tailormade Productions
Complaining over we’re very excited bout the rushes we’ve returned with. The performances are brilliantly enticing and the camera work and pacing of scenes works a treat. However, we have returned not having shot the whole film and so we’ve all got to knuckle down now and get orgnising again to make a 2nd return trip to Mull in early February to shoot 2nd unit material and a few pick ups. Everybody agrees its a huge benefit to be able to rough assemble the material and get a strong overview of the piece and reflect on what is and isn’t needed. The poetic thriller look and atmosphere is dramatic and exciting but not an easy one to achieve so more time reviewing the process and balance of picture and sound is blessing.
Other issues for now include raising finance for the return trip and some post production money, so the applications are being sent and further phonecalls made.
Meantime Liz and I are doing our bestest to get as much done as possible before Christms takes over – think its going to have to be homemde Christmas chutney for everyone this year as myis very much empty.
Happy 2009 if we don’t write before then.
Brek and Liz
