First Fruits

Well, after starting a search for a sound designer and mixer, we have had our first offer from a two-person team. This has led me to feel that the project is happening once more, rather than languishing in a limbo of someone- other-than-me's making. (Unless of course it is all my fault, in a perverse, subconscious sort of way; something I've actually considered. Must get some Jungian therapy!)

For this final bit of work, I need to find another £1500. Anyone have a rich auntie who happens to like arthouse films about suicde pacts? Let me know:-)

Plan B

We've decided to divide the remaining sound work up between two people, sound design and sound mix. That may make the film easier to finish, and give the prospective sound maetros less of a headache. I think it's more usual to have sound design and mix being done by two separate people, anyway. Nowt else to report at this hour, other than it's time to go to bed and catch up on my reading. (Which is currently The Fanatic by James Robertson.)

It Ain't Over Till the Fat Lady Sings

... and she's currently not booked to do any gigs for the forseeable future.

 We are now back to square one on the sound design and mix. The last 12 months have been spent at the mercy of two sound designers, neither of whom completed the job. So, 3rd time lucky? I hope so.I keep having to remind myself not to give up, and that it took David Lynch 7 years to complete Eraserhead, Martin Scorsese 5 for Who's That Knocking at My Door etc. We are not the first filmmakers to spend forever in post, and we certainly won't be the last. But even so, it feels like a never-ending nightmare.
