You may have noticed a long period of silence here at the IWW blog.
Two days after the previous blog post, IWW director DJ Bad Vegan and his beautiful wife Jen welcomed their extraordinary baby boy, Ian, into the world. Since then (for the last nine months), the film has mostly been on hold while he has focused on all the post-production details of having a new baby in the house.
However, we will now be moving forward more aggressively on finishing the film. Hurray!
Since our last update, we've mostly focused on revising the rough edit and getting the pick-up footage that came in during the last stages of production slotted in.
Moving forward, the next major step is to take the first few minutes of the film all the way through scoring and visual treatment/coloring. This opening segment of the film will become our reference for the post-prod work we do on the rest of the film. In this way, once we have established the "look and feel" that we're creating via post-production techniques (editing pace and style, music, sound design, in-frame camera movement, coloring, visual treatment, etc), we can apply it to the rest of the movie as we create a final cut and into CGI visual FX.
Look for more stills and maybe even some footage from that process coming your way over the next few months.
Also, starting very soon, we'll be introducing some key IWW cast and crew right here on the blog. As we've said a million times, it takes a village to make a movie and we want to celebrate the tireless, dediected and highly-talented people who are making it happen.
Lastly, a huge, humble thanks to all our fans, friends, family, donors, cast and crew who are waiting patiently to see the film. We know it's been a long time since principal photoragraphy. It seems like forever. But this is a hugely ambitious project and we still have a long road ahead. Know that we're once again back in the saddle and moving forward with the same determination and vision that got this DIY sci-fi epic through 18 months of production across three countries.
Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more.
