The Producer’s Report #89
Oct 2009 15

Ian showed us some pretty hardcore battle scenes today, all of them wonderfully amped up with explosions and scintillating visual effects. Jen reports that Josh did come in last Saturday to complete his last session of ADR. Ed and Dan are working to finish scrubbing audio for a small number of remaining scenes by the end of October. Then we’ll be able to resume ADR again.

Here are the stats.

Status of Visual Effects (VFX) Shots:
Number remaining: 89
Number in progress: 6
Number completed: 528
Percentage remaining: 14.4% (LESS THAN 15%!!)

Doom: “Look out! The chandelier!” (calculated by Ian)

Projected date for completion of all VFX:
24 January 2010 (based on projected time estimates of all tasks)
18 February 2010 (based on spreadsheet items completed per week)

This week’s recommendations:
Ian: “PB & J with chocolate” because, how can you not like peanut butter and jelly, Jen Forbes.
Jen: “Fly Film Making” because getting everything written, shot, cut in a weekend is the only way to make a movie. If you have time, then it will take time.
Bryce: “Rx Bandits” because they’re amazing.
Nate: “The Nurse Who Loved Me” by A Perfect Circle. This song falls into the Mellow Gold and Madness categories. The singer has a fractured relationship with reality. The music has a solid relationship with your ears.
Phil: “Olias of Sunhillow” by Jon Anderson. Still one of the most beautiful and moving albums of all time.

Cheers,

Phil McCoy, Executive Producer
