EDIE has been winning festival awards across the world over the last few months. The films acolades include, audience awards in Hell Half Mile festival in Bay City Michigan and the special jury award at the Nordic Adventure film festival in Copenhagen. Simon and everyone who worked on the film are delighted the audience has responded so well to the film. The film was a summer sleeper hit in the UK, Australia and New Zealand and will one in US cinemas in Summer 2019.
We are now entering the final month of post production on my film Edie. One of Britiain's finest film composers Debbie Wiseman MBE recorded the score last week at Angel studios in Islington, London. It's truly a beautiful and poetic piece of work that richly enhances the film. The score is orcestral with solo guitar symbolising the heart of Edie, our adventuring hero. Attention has now turned to sound mixing and grading at Post Republic in Berlin, Germany.
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.
Simon's latest feature film Edie has wrapped principal photography. Shooting took place over five weeks, shooting in north west Scotland and in London. Sheila Hancock plays the title role of Edie and she is joined by Kevin Guthrie as Jonny. "The shoot was really hard but we had a fantastic crew who really worked around the clock and help make what will be a special movie I think" said Simon. The movie is shot on the Arri Alexa mini with Zeiss master primes lenses. About fifteen weeks of post production will start in June and the Simon and the team aim to have the movie completed by Christmas.
