It’s been a while since the Island team have written a blog so firstly apologies.
Just so you know the dedicated ISLAND ‘Coming Soon’ website is also, er, coming soon from our friends at Name Creative….it will give a further sense of our aesthetic – with stills, music and bios of the team. It should be available by October at www.islandthemovie.com – We’ll let you know as soon as its live.
The film is now 99% complete. Our time at Ascent Media (home of the comfiest sofas and endless coffee) is almost over: we have just one day left of the grade (colouring the film including FX such as fades) and one of the sound mix (sound effects, score) before we can declare the film properly FINISHED.
In the meantime we have had the UK Film Council – who loved the film in its incomplete stage – offer some provisional support to our UK distributor Soda Pictures in the form of Print & Advertising monies – Yippeee. Fingers crossed the precarious nature of this quango’s funding won’t adversely affect the film – Eeeeek
Some other news Lawrence Atkinson, the CEO of DDA PR (www.ddapr.com) has come on board as our publicist and press agent on the strength of the film. Lucky us! and there is a new podcast coming very soon….. stay tuned
More news to follow on sales agents, distribution deals and festival updates!
Thanks for reading…. The Island Team. xxx
