So there I was...

... working on the latest podcast in between finding music for the new podcast episode, when I realised I haven't updated this blog for a good few months.

So where are we in the grand scheme of things?

Reading up on the last blog there's still a lot of unfinished work One Foot continues to move forward, but due to bust Christmas, the edit took longer than planned. However, the first edit is now complete. It has been passed back to our DoP for the grade whilst Charlotte and I continue with the animation.

On that front, we've completed roughly half the animation. I haven't put it in the edit yet as I need the grade, but I can still work on the 2nd stage of animation first.

Soon we also need to start on the sound edit in case we need to ADR any scenes.

From Project 30 I have learnt that it is always good to have a realistic time frame to set yourself. Therefore, based on the length it has taken Brother Chris to complete Jenny Ringo, I think I have about 1 year to complete the film fully. That means by October, or specifically, Halloween, I will have a completed short film to do the festival rounds in 2014.

So what else has been taking up my time. Well...

All good films need a good trailer. I've roughly edited a trailer together to show at Moviebar next month - this also happens to be the last MovieBar we will run. Sad to see it go, but glad for the time back to work on other projects. Anyway trailer is getting there, just need music.

Charlotte has been working on a poster for the film. So far it looks amazing and really captures the creepy atmosphere we tried to capture with One Foot.

What's that you say? "You're doing a podcast now"?
Yep. Brother Chris and I have begun a new podcast in which we discuss the merits of films that have only cost us 1 English Pound. You can find the first episode (and all future episodes) here:-

And that's that really.

I completed Mass Effect 3 by the way. Currently on the excellent Tomb Raider. I should post about that really but who's even reading this.

I'll let you know when I have made more progress on any of the above.
