Week Nine – Tales from the Edit – Cinema test and our first festival entries
In the last few weeks, we have watched Addicted to Sheep on many screens (TV, desktop computers, laptops…) and each time it feels like a different experience.
For our final test before we said ‘that’s it we are happy with the sound mix and the colour grading’ we watched it on a Cinema screen.
The technician did all the set-up for us to make sure we got the screening format right and the sound levels spot on.
After 4 years of hard work, it felt like the first time we could really sit back and relax, and enjoy taking in the scenery, appreciate the sounds and music.
We have watched it many times, but this time it felt like we were all enjoying watching the completed film as viewers. Secretly, we all had a little tear in our eye!
We have now entered a few high profile film festivals. Fingers crossed they like it as much as we do! It’s the first step to taking our film out to the world. We have a few busy weeks ahead of us! As well as cutting a new trailer, we will be applying to more festivals as well as arranging a ‘sneak preview’ for all those who have supported us to get to this stage. Very exciting times ahead! Watch this space!
