A Musing Post Production
The last six weeks, the A Musing Team has been working on all aspects of post production for our film. Phil Seneker is continuing work on editing and titling. We’re about 99% complete with the final cut. We found that we needed to get a few pickup shots that will tie in the story a little better. Hoping to get those shots on film and have editing at 100% complete in the next week!
Tania Backus has been working to align the music score for our film. We are working with several local artists that have volunteered their work for consideration. This has helped quite a lot and definitely the route any independent filmmaker would want to go in terms of music for your project. Tap into your local resources and stay away from paying royalties to signed artists. The license for one song could be as much as your entire film budget. Use indie music for your indie film.
Josh J. Svare is A Musing Film sound engineer technician. He’s responsible for volume control and overall sound quality. Josh also worked on A Musing Film as our audio mix/boom technician so he is very close to the work that needs to be accomplished. Volume control can be quite tricky: loud noises must be loud but not blaring to an audience and an actor's whisper must be soft yet loud enough to be understood by listeners. Josh is using the sound from live action on the set and completes the soundtrack by adding and blending in other tracks such as background music, additional dialogue, and sound effects. The mixture of the many tracks results in one complete soundtrack, which will match the visual portion of the film perfectly.
David Spies is currently working on several different poster designs for A Musing Film. David has years of experience using Photoshop and due to budget, took on the responsibility of Graphic Art design for A Musing Film poster and prints. When designing a movie poster it does help to be very close to the film. It definitely helps to know the plot, characters and the story when working on a design. This has helped in my decision in utilizing certain images, text and even the layout. Some things to keep in mind when designing a poster; the aesthetics should be pleasing to the eye, It should focus and communicate a single message to your audience, It should have order and make people want to watch your film. A Musing Film poster will be awesome! Next step is locating a local print shop that has outstanding rates!
Overall we are definitely getting close to wrapping up post production on A Musing Film with the first week of December looking promising. Our anticipation and excitement is growing as we get close to finishing this wonderful project. We can’t wait to share A Musing Film with our backers and those in the community that have helped to make our project possible. We could not have done this without the wonderful help from our supporters.
