NEW EDIE WEB SITE OPENS

Simon's next movie, Edie has opened it's new WEBSITE News, videos and articles about the movie can be seen there. Simon is in Berlin finishing the film with final checks on titles, the grade and visual effects. Simon commented "It seems funny to be doing visual effects in a movie that was shot entirely for real and on location. We are really smoothing out a few things, the removal of crew in a few arial shots, adding stars and removing roads and traffic in other shots. We are almost at the finish line....it's been great and VFX company Automatik in Berlin have been fantastic. "

Edie has moved on to it's final stage of colour grading and sound mixing. The film was shot 4K with Zeiss Prime lenses on the Arri Alexa. The sound is being mixed in Dolby Atmos with multiple records of wind and atmospheres specially recorded for Edie in Scotland.

My very first student film, Tea and Bullets was mixed in Dolby SR which was unheard of for a student film back in the day.
