Update #4

Picture lock!

4 comments

Dear Backers,
We've hit the 2/3 funding mark! Thank you all again for your generous pledges.

This past week Dressing Up hit a huge milestone! We have picture lock - the visual story has been completely laid out and is final/locked. Much thanks to my wonderful editor Val who has been working with me on this since January.

On to color correction! I have a meeting set up with a colorist next week to discuss correcting some shots that came out too dark or too light and also laying out an overall color palette for the film. We shot with HD camera's and have megabytes of color information. Looking at the film I'm thinking about possibly a bright, saturated look or a pale, faded look or even possibly a combination of the two that will correlate with Jenny's journey from quiet young woman to outspoken young woman.

I've also recruited a Reel Grrl, Gwyn, to create the credits. Laying out the credits is an exacting process and if not done correctly the credits will stutter instead of scrolling smoothly down the screen. For those of you who don't know Reel Grrls - it's a wonderful organization that trains girls in media creation and gives them the tools to tell their stories. I've been involved with Reel Grrls since 2009 and enjoy working with and mentoring the grrls. Gwyn and another Reel Grrl, Sahar, helped out during pre-prodution by filming all the actors so I could review their auditions. Vange, also a Reel Grrl, created the beautiful title that unfurls like a ribbon at the beginning of the the film.

Finally, next week I'm meeting with a local musician who has her own studio to discuss recording, mixing and mastering Jean Mann's song. I'm excited to learn about this process of creating a polished song and checking off another milestone.
Have a wonderful weekend,
Ilona

      I took a look and they use lots of dark grays/browns with bright oranges and reds, very cool. I also like the color palette in Moonrise Kingdom. Red is used intentionally in Dressing Up.
