FILM PRODUCTION BLOG » FILMING ON AMOLAD...1 DAY LEFT!
Hello W&G fans!
If you’ve been following our blog then you might know that our shooting deadline is tomorrow! We’re still finishing off 6 shots for 3 scenes towards the end of the film which are on track to be completed by our deadline tomorrow.
Once we’ve finished we’ll send all the footage to Nick Park. The next stage is called the ‘picture lock’ where Nick finalises all the shots he wants to use in the final cut of the film. The finalised version is then passed on to several departments to add the finishing touches. This includes finishing off the visual effects in the CGI department and adding music and sound effects. This process is extremely important - we have already gone through 2 versions of the music trying to make sure that it is right for the look and feel of the film - it’s amazing how much of a difference it can make!
Even though the film will be out of our hands soon, the crew at Aztec won’t be twiddling their thumbs. There’s still promotional material to produce for AMOLAD including a lot of stills shoots, plus we will also be arranging for two thirds of the of the studio floor to be taken over by new productions including Shaun the Sheep. To make room for the new productions all the unused W&G sets and models will initially be put into storage. The team will then sort through and save any pieces they might be able to re-use for exhibitions and future productions. The new productions will start in just over 2 week’s time and so there’s still plenty for us to do!
To celebrate the end of filming on AMOLAD we’re holding an official wrap party next week to say thank you to all the team who have been involved. Most of the crew will then start work on new productions over the next couple of week. As for me, I’ll be taking a nice relaxing holiday before it gets busy again! We’ll get someone from the post production team to update you on next month’s progress and so for now I’ll say farewell and hope you enjoy watching ‘A Matter of Loaf and Death’ as much as we’ve enjoyed filming it!
All the best, over and out.
