FIRST REVIEWS FOR EDIE COME IN... AND THEY ARE GREAT!

Here's the first first reviews for EDIE posted directly after the Edinburgh International Film Festival. 

EDIE TAKES EDINBURGH BY STORM

Edie has taken Edinbugh international film festival by storm. Both screenings completely sold out within days. EDIE has subsequently been awarded "Best in Fest" selection which earns the movie another prime time sceeening. Mark Stothert producer commented "we are bowled over with the response to Edie in Edinburgh. Our screenings were amongst the first to sell out and everyone just adores the movie. It's so gratifying. Another screening gives the public the chance to see one of the standout performances of the year. Sheila Hancock giving perhaps the finest performance of her career."

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. "

SOUND MIXING AND GRADING START ON EDIE

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.

EDIE ARRIVES AT POST REPUBLIC

Edie has been locked and has now entered the world of post production sound, grading and visual effects. Work is being carried out at The Post Republic in Berlin, Germany. The film is being graded and conformed in 4K and mixed in Dolby Atmos

Simon commented, "I have always tried to push the envelope of post production sound. 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. Today we will venturing into object based sound mixing with the exciting world of Dolby Atmos, I can't wait. Michael and the team at Post Republic are ready to go and the facilities are second to none. With a bit of luck we will finish the movie in late January." 

EDIE IN POST PRODUCTION (UPDATE)

Edie is now heavily into post production - with one of our two pick shoots complete. The next shoot is in early September to complete a hotel interior scene with Sheila Hancock. Shortly afterwards the cut will be locked and we will move into sound post production and colour grading. The aim is to have the picture compete by late November of this year.
