EDIE PLAYS TO PACKED THEATRES IN OHIO

Edie packed out the theatres in Cleveland, Ohio for the 42nd Cleveland International film Festival. Simon did a Q and A and introduced EDIE to sell out Ohio audiences in three separate screenings. The film was so popular that the festival doubled the amount of screenings to six. On two separate days director Simon Hunter was racing from one packed screening to another. Simon comments, "it was insane, so many people wanted to see the movie and you learn how important good word of mouth is. That doubled our audience overnight."

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 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)
