Over the weekend, we had the honor of screening Sky during Lost River Film Festival in Lockhart, Texas at the 100-year-old Baker Gaslight Theater! Thank you to the festival staff for a fun (and socially distanced) evening and an engaging Q&A after the film.
Sky has an upcoming screening at The Lost River Film Festival in Lockhart, TX on Saturday, November 7 at 8pm!
Unfortunately, our October 9th premiere screening at MATCH Houston has been cancelled due to COVID-19. We have rescheduled the event for Saturday, May 1, 2021.
I know that May 1st is a long way off, but I think it is best for Sky to screen at a theater once it’s safe to do so, rather than a virtual screening. I truly believe that cinema is an art form that is meant to bring people together.
Sky was selected by the Julien Dubuque International Film Festival! However, the festival is postponed until April, 2021.
A couple of weeks ago, we drove to Austin to review the final surround sound mix by Stuck On On. It was such an immersive experience! I'm currently in the process of color grading the film, and will be done within two weeks.
After 9 months and roughly 400+ hours of editing, a reshoot, filming establishing shots and inserts, Sky is now picture locked! I went into this edit with the intention of stretching my imagination to its tearing limits in service of the story.
Amos, Caleb and myself had a great chat about the final iteration of the score. From there, we will polish the sound, get any ADR that is needed, color the film, and then... share it with all of you.
I had another great chat with composer Amos Cochran last night about the second draft of the score. Collaborating with Amos to further the protagonist's characterization through the score is truly rewarding.
The first rough cut of the film is now complete! Time to refine the edit...
Signed screenplays, posters, and the signed slate go out to our generous donors this week!
