Dear friends of Dyke Hard!
We've had a lot of technical problems the last few months, so the film isn't done yet – sorry! Our camera was so old that the latest version of the editing program couldn't handle the material, but this didn't show until it was time to export. We had to cut the whole film again in an older version of the program, phew!
Other than that things are going well! The editing is done, sound is almost done, credits are done and we've started the colour correction for cinema screenings. Because of our low image quality, we didn't think so much could be done with the colours, but we are getting awsome help and the movie is now just as colorful as in our dreams.
Speaking of awsome help a big mainstream film production company namned Filmlance has taken us under it's wings and is now handeling everything from contracts and distribution to post production technicalities. Despite their size (or maybe because of it?) we get to keep our creative freedom and stick to our original vision, in all it's crazyness.
We still haven't set a premiere date, but you'll be the first to know when we have. Until then, you can enjoy some of our talented actors in a music video we recently made for The Knife! (They had seen the Dyke Hard trailer and liked our style!)
Also, our photographer Alexi developed some rolls of film he found in the refrigerator:
Two of our sweet stunt performers from Stockholm Parkour Academy, dressed as Peggy and Dawn.
Watch out for officer #1 and #2!
Can you believe we actually rented a Helicopter? For a home baked cake!
A perfect night for romance! Peggy and Dawn are getting ready for their love scene.
Famous music video director Nikeisha Andersson as the gas station clerk.
The owners of the vintage gas station. (It's in the middle of their garden!)
Peggy loves the smell of gasoline
Riff’s new obedient backup band.
Bitte and Alexi are taking a break from scrubbing 30 year’s dirt and moss from a trailer they have just purchased from the owner of the vintage gas station.
While our colorists and sound experts are on vacation, we’re giving a master class in queer lowbudget filmmaking at the touring queer filmfestival Cinemaqueer. They are travelling all over Sweden this summer with their rebuilt cinema bus. Come see us in Falun July 19th and Sundsvall July 21! http://cinemaqueer.se/
We won't participate in Stockholm Pride this year since we need to focus on finishing the movie, but we'll attend as civilians and hope to see you there. Have a great summer!
