The ‘Gothland Elysium’ rough cut (a.k.a. ‘Alpha One’) is done!

I am proud to announce that our first rough cut (which I named ‘Alpha One’) of ‘Gothland Elysium’ now is done! I have spent 30 hours in a non-stop crunchmode this weekend to get this done. I just reached 100% on this editing project, but now while I scroll through it, in Final Cut Pro 7, I feel around 20% finished in total haha… There is still SO much tweaking and polishing to be done. And also some parts that really doesn’t work too well and requires some magical fixes.

‘Alpha One’ is around 40 minutes long and then there is still large parts of our intro missing, some scenes here and there and also the end credits. So I think that GE will be around 50 minutes long, unless we decide to remove parts later due to the lack of magical fixes.

I have also added our soundtrack to 80% of the entire film and done color grading, in Apple Color, to various scenes as tests. I created four different color grades this summer and I think that we will stick with these, because I really don’t want to use too many grades. One third of the film has also got audio/foley fx, which I started today when the cut part was done. But the audio/foley/fx/ADR is merely in the beginning stage. While I get this ‘alpha’ into a more proper ‘beta’ I will work on VFX for the +20 scenes that requires this. Stay tuned!
