Have now completed both sets of character back stories. Now to the storyboards!
Thinking about tag lines this morning:
'The beginning isn't the beginning'
'Our records have been changed'
'Aliens have landed'
'History is not what it seems'
'Anyone can make history'
'Who writes history'
Christie has confirmed she is very happy with her new showreel - all done. Very pleased!
Received the InBetweener Movie clips and now added into showreel. Did a new edit of one of the Red Zone clips to make room - spotlight version is still 3 minutes!
I reckon this is done now! Await to hear feedback from Christie this week.
After thinking about what the film is about (!) I realised that a blue colour for the text isn't really appropriate... Replaced last night with a Mars colour...
Following feedback from Christie and some brutal editing we now have 2 versions almost ready. A dead on 3 minute Spotlight version along with a 3min 30sec website version.
Christie is very happy which is great news - always pleasing to help a friend. Just one more clip to add which is from The Inbetweeners film. A DVD is I the post so should get that tomorrow so I can get cutting!
Great news - she likes the new version! Apparently Spotlight require nothing over 3 minutes so as this is slightly over it needs to be cut down even more. She will be sending it round to colleagues and friends for feedback on which bits should come out.
Piano music has been supplied and I have added it in at the beginning and end - works well.
Await feedback before doing anymore.
Have now taken the opportunity to revisit my rough edit and be quite ruthless to get the reel down to just over 3 minutes 40 seconds. Not heard from Christie about her music so have colour corrected and added titles ready for it.
Just waiting for a Vimeo version to encode and then will send her the link for review ....
