Production Diary Blog - (Peer into The Rift!)


Hi there, Rifters!

Today, Alyssa and I watched a rough cut of the film. It was an exciting moment! There's still some work ahead in refining the edit, then visual effects, sound, music, and coloring -- but it's still quite a milestone.

The footage is cutting together really well, and the scenes are taking shape... thanks of course to the work of our wonderful cast and crew, AND thanks to our editor, Alec Styborski, who has worked on some things you might recognize like True DetectiveEuropa ReportBoardwalk EmpireLife of Pi, and the new-ish Netflix show Marco Polo.

So, post-production is moving along. I wish it was moving a bit faster, but we are just taking the time we need to make sure the film is in the best shape it can be. We will be posting another update soon with some more behind-the-scenes footage for you, and keeping you abreast of what's happening with post-production. For now, we will be working with our editor, Alec, to keep refining the cut until it's ready for VFX and score.

That's it for now, folks. I can't wait until we can show you the finished film!
