FINAL PICTURE AND SOUND UNITED AT SKYWALKER!!
You know it's going to be a special day when Ben Burtt (legendary sound artist and pioneer from Star Wars to Wall-e) gets you a chair to have breakfast with him and asks about your film. And then Randy Thom joins us. If Walter Murch had stopped by it would have been the absolute trinity of film sound pioneers and legends.
Suffice it to say that we had a great day tuning-up our sound mix with the talents of Zach Martin, who worked some special sonic magic for us. Then it was time, after many years of work, to see, for the first time, our final, beautifully color-graded picture, united in marriage with our final sound mix on the most cinematic stage I've ever experienced: Skywalker's Stag Theater.
From the opening, the scenes flowed together and the narrative linked up. Mandorla, the story that has always wanted to be, came to life on the screen and filled the theater. Liz and I knew it in the moment, and look forward to showing it at film festivals in 2015, and then releasing it in the fall.
Stay tuned, with Mandorla now alive on the screen, things will start to happen. If you're not on our list yet, sign up for email updates and event notices!!
