Work in Progress by "Death in Arizona"
I have been working long and hard on the film. I have arrived to a first-rough-cut. I will let it sit for some weeks in the hope that It will ferment. I'm not quite sure when the film will be ready, but I am getting there in a steady pace.
I made a 5 min. teaser, it has a great feel on the cut. It has some new lovely music from composer Jorge Marrón. I would love to hear your impressions, to see if it resonates with you. I await your comments:
Thank you, Tin
He estado trabajando duro en la película. He llegado a un primer corte crudo. Lo voy a dejar descansar durante unas cuantas semanas, con el deseo que se fermente un poco. No estoy muy seguro cuando estará terminada la película, pero voy a paso firme.
Hice un teaser (5 min), tiene una sensación similar a la del corte. Tiene nueva y bella música del compositor Jorge Marrón. Me encantaría escuchar sus impresiones, ver si se identifican con él. Espero sus comentarios:
