Auditions for our two lead roles were held today. We saw some great people and picking just two will be a challenge. Thanks to all those that auditioned for us, and final casting will be announced soon.
Over the course of two days, the team conducted some test shoots at Pinewood Studios. Our camera department worked with cinematographer Stefan Lange to develop the overall look of the film, and we all gained invaluable experience in our roles on the film. We got to use cameras provided by Movie Tech and lighting from Pinewood MBS Lighting. Having the crew working together for the first time was a really positive experience.
Pete Flint has joined the crew of The Nail That Sticks Out. He will be recording sound during the shoot as well as creating an original score for the film. We are all very excited to be working with him, and based on hearing some initial musical ideas audiences are in for a real treat.
Our crowdfunding campaign to raise part of our films budget goes live in May. So we decided to shoot a teaser trailer for the film, along with the director, writer and producer explaining why the project is so important to them and what are intentions for the film are. We quickly discovered that dealing with paint on set can get pretty messy.
Today we had the opportunity to watch the fantastic short film Wonderkid and speak with the director Rhys Chapman. It was inspiring to hear how Rhys got the film made.
You can watch the Wonderkid here.
After a selection process The Nail That Sticks Out was chosen as the film project that we would be working on, and the crew was assembled. We are all excited to get to work bringing this short film to an audience.
