If you recall last month our film 'Eyes in the Dark' was showing at the HP Lovecraft Film Festival in the states and whilst we were unsuccessful in winning I was told by Brian Callahan that Eyes in the Dark "got some great reactions from the audience, and quite a few votes in our audience choice ballots. A fine film!"
What more could you want from an Audience other than a good reaction!
We've done a good few tests with the new kit and so far so good. We conducted an interview on Dartmoor in challenging conditions as well as a couple of interior interviews. Good news is the sound kit works very well although the sound sync work flow hasn't quite been pinned down! Pluraleyes 3 which we recently acquired seems to get confused with lots of audio. We put half an hour of material in the time line to synch and it failed to match footage I'd previously synced. When I put this unmatched footage in its own project though it synced just fine though!
Now for the main announcement of this months news. We're in the project planned stage for Blackout Production's first Horror film!! This is quite a popular genre and has wide variety of styles and sub-genres a lot of which we don't like! We find there is too much torture porn these day which started out as snuff movies and became main stream in movies like Saw and more recent Hostel. Why do people want to watch people suffer and in great detail? So we are going to try and make a more cartoon horror which isn't too graphic, has a good level of humor but still has shock factor. Not quite a troma movie and not quite hammer horror but somewhere in-between!
So as you can see things are starting to get busy!
