Hello again everyone!
So as we prepare for a trip to Nashville and the FILM-COM Development, Financing and Distribution Market, we thought we’d give you a recap of the whirlwind that has been the last few months criss-crossing the country on our national Film Festival Tour with our award-winning time travel feature DISPLACEMENT.
Most recently we were in Dallas for the USA Film Festival, where the fest also presented a tribute to our amazing cast member Bruce Davison, and both he and our star Courtney Hope appeared on local news programs promoting the film. Scroll down to check it all out below:
North Texas actress Courtney Hope talks about her new movie at the USA Film Festival.
Bruce Davison and Courtney Hope stop by Daybreak to talk about ‘Displacement’ which screens Saturday at the 46th annual USA Film Festival.
Prior to that we were an Official Selection in the Phoenix Film Festival, where Mr. Mader was invited to join a Director’s panel along with an educational outreach seminar.
Our West Coast Premiere was February 19, 2016 (on the 3-year anniversary of the start of filming!) in the Hollywood Reel Independent Film Festival, where we won the award for Best Science Fiction Film and Best Supporting Actor for Bruce Davison, plus were nominated for their People’s Choice Audience Award!
Two weeks before that we screened in the Boston Science Fiction Festival (brrrrrrrrrrrrr) where we took home their Chrononaut Time Travel Award for outstanding time travel film!
It’s been a wild ride, and we’ve only just begun! We are currently negotiating with major distributors as we now have multiple offers on the table for a North American and Worldwide release later this year, and will be scheduling more screenings in the weeks and months ahead. CLick here to join our mailing list and be the first to reserve your copy of the film, hear about screenings in your area, and more. Or you can book your own hometown screening! More info here.
Here at long last is the first Official Trailer for our feature film DISPLACEMENT, featuring new footage, sound design, original music and our amazing cast. Enjoy!
So after a marathon 18-hour color grading session, another marathon 13-hour sound mix session, an outstanding music score delivered in record time, and days of conforming, fine-tuning, tweaking, rendering and uploading, we finally have a near-finished version of Displacement submitted to the Sundance Film Festival!
Thanks to Gavin Fisher, Clancy Troutman, Patrick Giraudi, Savannah Auch, Bruce Chianese and the entire team for all your hard work and burning the midnight oil to hit the deadline. This begins our festival process. Now on to the final phase: ADR looping, final color and vfx, live musicians recording, final mix, mastering, then… Screenings!
Here’s the view from the Director’s pilot chair at the mix session. That’s sound mascot (and new friend) Bootsie Boots on the left supervising the session.
Emmy nominated and award-winning composer BRUCE CHIANESE has signed on to score the orchestral music for our film. Bruce is a brilliant and talented artist with over 100 credits in film and television. Having worked with director Mader on a few smaller projects in the past, this will be their first feature together. And their collaboration is off to a rousing start, with Bruce having already delivered what is arguably one of the most sweeping and magical music cues to grace the soundtrack of an independent film in quite some time. It is truly amazing, and it will only get better from here.
In addition we are also very proud to be working with an amazing sound design team headed by Sound Supervisors Clancy Troutman and Savannah Augh, sound designer/mixer Chip Mulaney, award-winning re-recording mixer Patrick Giraudi, sound effects editor Reese Miller, backgrounds editor Lisa Neidhardt and Foley artist Lorita De La Cerna. With a list of credits reaching some 400 titles, we can rest assured that this film will now sound as great as it looks!
So as we drill deep into post-production and visual effects on our feature Displacement, we are finally getting caught up on our BTS Videos. Here’s a look at our beach days including the ever lovely Susan Blakely. It’s ‘Beachin’. Enjoy!
We are proud to announce the Ultimate Collection VOD release of our multi-award-winning short film PASSING DARKNESS which includes its 49-minute Behind-the-Scenes Documentary, Commentaries and some fun free Extras. Click the link below to watch the trailer and see the film. More of our award-winning titles are coming soon so stay tuned!
So 2014 proved to be another exciting and challenging year for us in the production of our feature film Displacement. Between our efforts to raise more funding, shoot around work-for-hire jobs and other scheduling challenges, plus trying to lock down our final name actor (exciting news on that front coming soon) we actually managed to get over 95% of the movie in-the-can, were contacted by nearly a dozen interested distributors and international sales agents, and welcomed Golden Globe Winner Susan Blakely to our cast! Not a bad year all things considered.
And as we look ahead to finishing the film in 2015, here is the first of some exclusive video recaps to highlight what we’ve been up to since our hotel stage shoot. As Aza Allen says in the vid, “It’s Displacement. Awesome.” Enjoy!
