Well It's been awhile since I posted anything in the diary and I thought now would be as good a time as any. It's only been 2 years!
At the begining of this project I didn't quite expect to still be pulling together the vfx in 2010. A lot has happened since shooting Terminal, now Fracture.
So what happend?
Well, I was made redundant from my full time job of 12 years, confronted with some serious medical issues, been involved in a car crash - this is followed by a long list which I'll spare you all from!
Well, I directed some broadcast material for the Arts Council England and the 2012 Olympics, won some awards for the collabrative work with Cottage Industry Films, did some script writing for Pathe, found a new job and was made an uncle, twice! All these events followed by the expansion of Fxhome make Fracture's shoot seem a very distant memory.
I also have been enjoying the piste, snowboarding being the only thing I can actively call my excercise with any sort of skill. Everything else is rather meh, except hiking.
The format we used has become obslete and it's surprising how quick technology changes. My technical skills have developed a lot since the project so it'll be strange for me to watch along with an audience. At the time of shooting I stand by my decisions and choices because at that time I felt they were the right ones to make, for better or worse.
Currently we are cutting the trailer - there will be influences on the style from my favourite director. Will anyone notice? It'll be interesting to see what kind of reaction we get, I have no idea where peoples expectations are. Time will tell.
It's drawing to a close and the many delays will finally come to an end. It's been a very long, fustrating, agonising, emotional journey, but one I wouldn't change. I've learned so much through this experience and I'm very grateful to have had the opportunity to work with and alongside some amazing talent.
My only concern will be once the film is finished what I'm going to do in the evenings!
