Last week we shot the final scenes (bar a couple of composite elements) of 'Seven Cases'. We were lucky enough to have been able to get the great Steven Berkoff to play the lead antagonist role of 'Lawson'. As you might expect, Steven brought a level of performance to the scenes that has elevated the film to new heights. His intensity and talent in playing complex characters was a pleasure to watch and directing him was a real privilege. The rushes look excellent and i'm about to start slotting them into place in the edit.
Jon is about to start working on the score now. He's been working on his template for the film and is now just waiting for me to send him the reels to make a start on.
I'm going to be tightening up the edit, tinkering with the grade and then diving into the foley and sound design. Hopefully, we'll have a cut ready to screen soon in the new year. We were aiming for Xmas, but i think February is a more realistic timescale after the mad few weeks we've had with all the other work we've had to fit in.
We sat and watched the film through the other day and we're incredibly pleased with it. It's come out so close to my initial vision for it that once we're done with the post process i think we'll have a truly stunning indie film to show the world.
We'd like to say a big 'thank you' to Leoni Kibbey casting for all their help.
