We’re in the midst of applying to festivals. Fingers crossed, but we know that Stay Then Go will find its best home/audience/place! Stay tuned for more news and a new website in the next couple months.
We’ve been busy in post production, with color, sound and music. Here’s a still from the salad bar scene – working on color correction. How ’bout those tomatoes?!
We are done with our edit and thrilled to be headed into color, vfx and sound work with Goldcrest NY. Fantastic people, great facility. We couldn’t be in better hands for this crucial phase of the project.
Our own Matt Kane was named one of the UK Stars of Tomorrow 2013 based on his roles in Stay Then Go, The Last of Robin Hood, and Switched at Birth. We totally agree! Click here to see the article.
Since March, we’ve been editing in earnest. Working in a humble spot deep in the heart of DUMBO NYC. The process has been fantastic, and we are very happy with how things are coming along. Our goal is to lock picture mid June.
Earlier this year STAY THEN GO was fortunate enough to be part of The Edit Center feature class in NYC. If you aren’t familiar with the Edit Center, they offer professional editing classes to some of the brightest up and coming editors in the biz. Taught by Alan Oxman (Welcome to the Dollhouse, Happiness) and Betsy Kagan, the class worked closely with our director, Shelli Ainsworth and was our first opportunity to really explore all our material in the hands of a group of editors with fresh ideas and creative spirit. Classic indie dramas Frozen River and Winter’s Bone went through this process – we hope to follow in their footsteps.
Since we wrapped principal photography in September, the movie is headed down the happy path of post production, one step at a time. Some of those steps are exciting: reviewing footage, planning the edit, working with our post-house (Splice), organizing production stills, thinking about music. Which we do, everyday. And some of those tasks are, well… what Producers do: polishing up accounting, paying bills, and working on the thousands of pieces of paper that go in files. But each step gets us closer to our goal of having an early cut of the film by late spring of 2013. So we couldn’t be more excited to keep this great project on its path.
