Sound Screening

On Wednesday evening we had our first sound screening with myself, Erin, Fiona (our editor) and Xavier (our sound designer) the evening was a really great opportunity for us to evaluate how much work we really have ahead of us, and it's a lot! Xavier is now going away to create a test scene of sound design and music composition so we can better determine how much time we need to spend in the sound design process. Realising all the possibilities we have with sound made the evening exciting yet simultaneously daunting. We have a lot of work ahead of us, but I am so grateful for the amazing ability Erin and I have harnessed by bringing both Xavier & Fiona on board on the project.

1st Screening

Yesterday Erin and I had our first rough cut screening with our Editor Fiona Strain, our Executive Producer from Metro Screen David Opitz and a special guest Ian Brown from AFTRS.

The day went really well: David said it reaffirmed that he had made the right decision in choosing to give "Abbie" funding and Ian said it was a charming, sweet film, very slick. Aside from niceties, we had some really good constructive comments which are going to help us move forward in terms of refining the cut and the pace.

Bring on sound!
