There’s a lot to talk about in this post. First things first, post production on He’s Here has wrapped, and I want to take this moment to thank a few people. I want to thank my thesis partner and great friend, Kaylin Allshouse, for putting up with me. While we originally had hoped to work together to make a documentary, going so far to even take a documentary camera course in Maine, I’m glad we were encouraged to make a narrative. Had our professors not encouraged us to do so, the story of Lane, David, and Will would have never come to. We’ve spent a lot of time this past summer corresponding with each other, and workshopping ideas left and right until we finally found the right story. Secondly, I’d like to thank the crew and actors for giving up part of their day just to help us out. Even though there were hiccups that came up while shooting, they were always ready to help resolve the issue if they were able to. Finally, I want to thank our professors and film seminarians for their feedback during class both this semester and last semester. Without their help, He’s Here would not be what it is now.
Over the past week, Kaylin and I have been toying around with the audio of HH. While it’s been challenging, I’d like to think that the progress we’ve made has made a world of difference in making sure that the short is coherent and void of any audio issues. We’ve been trying to build a soundscape for each scene, in order to better unify the individual shots within a sequence. Additionally, we’ve been working with our Sound Designer Ethan S. to try and find music that fits each sequence within our short.
Overall, it’s hard to believe that deadline for HH is finally here. It has been an incredibly rewarding experience to assemble the footage that we shot and watch the entire short come together. I’d like to take this time to address the future of Savagely Rad. In the coming weeks, I’ll be working on various side projects, in an effort to expand my portfolio/reel. I have no idea what these projects will be, but rest assured, I’ll keep you updated on this blog. Thank you again for following my blog, and I look forward to communicating any updates to you in the future.
