Here is a long overdue update from OceanGybe and the Tidelines production team! Since our wildly successful Kickstarter campaign in the spring, we have made great progress on Tidelines and are extremely excited about the direction Tidelines is heading. Firstly, our sincere apologies for the delay, we’ve been waiting until we had something tangible to share. Now is that time !
After the campaign wrapped up, Andrew Naysmith (Director, Editor) and Arwen Hunter (Producer, Assistant Editor) dove into the footage from the trip in depth. Given the shear amount (200+ hours) of footage and the entire teams' positive, and maybe perhaps overly ambitious timelines, the editing process has taken much longer than we anticipated. As the narrative began to emerge they found that there were certain stories that needed more explanation, so had to organize extra shots, graphics, animations and interviews. All these elements have taken extra time but are invaluable to making the film polished.
We’re really excited now as Andy and Arwen have taken all those hours of footage down to a rough cut. Next week they are holding an Industry Screening in Victoria to get professional feedback. With the advice from all their peers and industry professionals they’ll be making any final edits, then work on the final touches of film in post production (audio mixing, colour correction, titles etc). They are aiming to have the film ready to screen in November.
Once again, thank you for your support and patience as we work to make Tidelines worthy of Oceangybe and all who have helped us.
