Review at Wade On Birmingham.

I managed to write a movie review for the Wade On Birmingham Sidewalk coverage.

Check it out, if you are so inclined.

Thanks to Wade for the opportunity to write about a movie other than Interplanetary!

Good news, everybody!

Interplanetary is going to Norway!

Our little opus will be screening at the WT Os International Film Festival in November. You can visit the festival web site, though Interplanetary isn't listed on it yet (I just heard from the fest director a few minutes ago).

More info when it is available...

This and that.

Chuck, Sanford, Tim, Michael, and I met down at Trap's on Sunday, and I think we finally finished up Interplanetary pick-up shots. I'll know for sure when we get the footage back from the lab, hopefully sometime next week. Here's Chuck about to get his lid on...

Melissa stopped by on Tuesday to do some ADR. She knocked it out of the park, as usual. It was great catching up with Melissa (and seeing photos of her new baby!).

Stopped by Eric McGinty's last night and heard the first bits of the music he is working on for Interplanetary. It's sounding awesome. And strange and cool and creepy... well, words can't do it justice. But hearing the direction McGinty is taking with the score has me even more excited about the movie.

And Erik Jambor informed me today that we already got a little Memphis press for the October Interplanetary screening...

"On Its Way: The Indie Memphis Film Festival"

Thanks to Jambor for the heads-up and The Bloodshot Eye for the mention.

Otherwise, it's just been day job and mixing/editing. As I expect it to be until mid-October (with some breaks for Rock Band 2 and the Sidewalk film fest).

Whitney (one of my Rock Band sisters-in-arms) ("Run To the Hills!") just posted a nice interview with me about Interplanetary and stuff at The Terminal.

Please do check it out.

Friday night pick-ups.

Went down to Sanford's (awesome) place to get a few pick-up shots of TV monitor playback stuff. And forgot the lenses! I really need to get my brain together. Anyways, after a quick trip home to get said lenses, we knocked out the shots pretty quickly.

We filmed in Sanford's workshop because he's been kind enough to store the console prop there. Which is fantastic, as I'm not looking forward to dragging it back up the stairs and cramming it into the condo. I keep hoping Stacey and I will get a place with a basement for storage of large props like the console, but, given the current banking environment, that's probably not going to happen anytime soon.

And so it begins.

Kevin Van Hyning stopped by earlier for the first ADR session of what I'm calling the "Memphis" cut of Interplanetary.

As most of Kevin's lines were of the off-camera variety, it didn't take too long to do the actual work. So I showed Kevin the first 20 minutes (give or take) of the edit, and we talked about other movies and drank the beer Kevin was nice enough to bring. Kevin's got excellent taste in movies -- his favorite flick is 2001. Go Kubrick!

A couple of pick-up shots with Sanford tomorrow, another short ADR session with Nick Crawford on Saturday, then to Trap's on Sunday to finish (hopefully) the Memphis cut pick-up shots.

On like Donkey Kong.

A special sneak preview screening of Interplanetary (the whole movie!) is scheduled for Saturday October 11, 11:59 a.m., at the Indie Memphis Film Festival in Memphis, TN.

More details as they are available. In the meantime, lots of post-production work to be done!

Have a good weekend...
