Second Assembly

After my somewhat vague entry last week about finding solutions for Hellbride‘s structural problems, I called a member of cast back at the end of last week for some dialogue looping, which has done the job fantastically. Sometimes simple solutions are all that’s required; I must admit I’d been panicking that we might need another reshoot. Funny old business.

Still being trying to sort out certain leads on distribution for KK, but it’s getting increasingly futile as everything winds down for Christmas, and come Wednesday I’m chucking in the towel for the rest of the year and taking a couple of weeks off.

Hellbride is looking pretty damn good in Second Assembly actually. I’m getting this cut over to our composer over the next couple of days, so that he can start putting together some score for it. Funny how music brings things to life so much. I can’t imagine KK without the score and the soundscapes.

Solving problems

Still trying to suss out exactly how my brain works.

Either way, the Hellbride issues are now considered sorted. The solution came to me fully formed yesterday, and I’ve been babbling about it ever since.

We might even hit our deadline.

Woo, and hoo.

And another…

Been spending my time sorting out various enquiries from sales agents and distribution companies. Hit a bit of a bummer earlier in the week with the news that my ‘ideal option’ isn’t dealing in horror any more. This is not only a pity from a KK angle, but also as a customer; they did some of the best horror releases out there. Won’t name the company as they don’t seem to have made the change of direction public yet.

Watched the current assembly of Hellbride straight through again this morning, and it needs… Goddammit, I’m not entirely sure what it needs. It’s got a whole bunch of brilliant stuff but doesn’t quite seem to be heading the way I want it to as a whole. I’ve been very eager for it to be done and dusted by January so that it stands a chance of getting premiered at a certain festival, but I think hand-on-heart that we’re probably going to miss that date because I want to get the sucker perfect. I’m still scratching my head about it, to be honest…
