With regards to "Of Shark and Man," things are going great, I am just waiting on a few clips of stock footage for the section about mangroves and that part will be done and then it's on to the final, epic dive sequence and the climax of the film and that's it, first timeline, cut and ready to go into post and audio!
On the subject of stock footage, I purposefully set out from the start to avoid it and use only what was shot during the month I was in Fiji, mainly to stand apart from almost everything else being made about sharks, even by the big studios, go organic and go real. However, much to the benefit of the film, I am including a maximum of around ninety seconds of stock purely because it is footage I simply couldn't shoot myself and which aids the film's narrative, not only that, the footage is being provided by professional cinematographers I both respect and like as people so that's a bonus!
Check it out below.
Finally, if you have been looking for updates on the "From the Office..." site and/or the Scarlet View Media page, I'm afraid with regards to the former, I haven't had any time to do updates recently and with the latter, thanks to the Wordpress update and the updates to some of the plugins, the site has been killed and due to Wordpress' sucky support (or lack thereof) I now have to start that again from scratch, new theme, new build, the works, so you can imagine how overjoyed I am at that prospect.
Fear not however, I will prevail.
More to come soon...
Edit: Emma Shepherd, on of the animators working on the film has just launched her new website, please check it out, she's very talented and deserves a break!
