On Saturday (Sept 21st) we shot my entry into the ABCs of Death part 2 online competition. I wrote all about the specifics of the competition in my last post: http://www.alwayswrongfilm.com/2013/08/21/abcs-of-death-part-2-auditions/.
Because there’s a deadline with this film, I had to put my other horror short film “Trap, Neuter, Kill!” on hold. The only major thing I was waiting on was a visual effect, but I the artists finished that this past week. Not only have we shot the whole film in a single day, but as of this post I have the film completely edit! I’m really happy about the editing process with this project, because I was working with a tight time frame of 3 minutes, but I never ran into a roadblock of too much footage and not enough time. I did cut a couple of lines but nothing major.
I knew I would need music for the short, and usually I wait til I’m actually editing the film to find the right music, so instead I approach an independent musician before we even shot. Thankfully the musician agreed to the project and was able to compose an original song for the short without seeing a frame of footage. It was all based on the script and it came out really good!
The film will be posted sometime this week on youtube, most likely on Sunday. I’m really excited for people to see it. I’ll post photos real soon on my facebook: facebook.com/alwayswrongfilm.
