Editing Update #2

Anthony Sylvester (editor) and I got a lot of work done this weekend and as a result, I'm happy to announce that picture on WAFFLE is now locked. Visually, it's looking great and it has a good flow. I'm now approaching the final stages of sound work before color-correction is applied.

A teaser for the film will be posted very soon.

Editing Update and Stills

This past week, I watched a very promising rough cut from editor Anthony Sylvester. We are now in the middle of making some crucial picture adjustments before moving on to color correction, which should be within the next two weeks. The goal is to spend most of June working on sound and have a final cut by early July. More post-production updates to come. In the meantime, here are a few more stills from the shoot:
