Hello Beautiful People,
After months of hard work, we are thrilled to announce that we have a final cut for And Breathe! We know from following other films on Seed & Spark that our updates have not been as frequent as they could have been and we thank you for your patience. We hope you enjoy some of the screenshots of the film that we are including in this post.
Wesley and Molly started editing nine months ago in January, with Molly picking the takes she wanted to use in the film. Next, Wesley completed our first rough cut in February. In March we worked on Sound Editing. Then in April, we got the first draft of the score from our talented composer, Caleb Straus (check out some of his other credits here: www.imdb.com/name/nm5478482/?ref_=nv_sr_1) and in May we worked on Sound Mixing.
Then in June and July we had to take a hiatus from editing. Molly received a promotion at her day job (as a Buyer at Whole Earth Provision Company) and had to focus her attention on learning her new position. But in August we came back to the film and made our final rounds of notes. And finally, in September we made the last adjustments (cutting a minute and thirty seconds off the film) and we have our Final Cut! The film comes in at sixteen minutes and nineteen seconds. We are so proud of this film and giddy with gratitude for our crowdfunding team, our crew, our cast, and most of all you-for supporting this film and making it a reality.
We've heard independent filmmaking described as running four marathons back to back. First there is acquiring funding, then production, post-production, and finally film festivals. We are thrilled to be entering the next stage and will begin submitting And Breathe to festivals later this week. If you know of a film festival that you think would be a good fit for this film, please let us know.
So when do you get to see the film? Well, we won't be able to release it to the public until we have had our world premiere. But we will send you an update when we get good news from film festivals and let you know ASAP when you can see the film that you helped make. Wishing you all the best.
Molly, Wesley, and Brittany
