Post Production

We have reached the final phase of the film, the big clean up. Today we lock the picture, which means that we can make no additional edits. Now we begin to enhance the soundtrack. This includes ADR (additional dialog recording), foley, wild ambient sound, walla and of course, the score.

We have assembled an incredible team for sound post production. The tracks will be mixed at Beat Street ( by Matt Longoria. Our ADR will be recorded at the famous Sound One ( studios by the amazing David Boulton. The score is being composed by Kyle Bobby Dunn (

We hope to have a final mix by the end of the month, in time for our Locarno and Toronto film festival deadlines.
