This Friday say the conclusion of pre-production on Quandary Productions’ next feature film ‘MUTE’ (formerly ‘SPECTRUM’ – see last blog entry for more). We have been busy applying the finishing touches, so Michael, James and crew can get on with the production stage of the film. The first shoot day is fast approaching – June 19th. The team will be shooting the ending set-piece in a TV studio first, then taking a short break to shoot some more in-film VTs. The remainder of the shoot will run Monday to Thursday from June 29th through to July 30th.
The primary focus for this week was propaganda for the SPECTRUM Corporation. Tasked with designing posters, to manipulate the people of the in-film world to stay silent, was Callum Emms of the design team. Working alongside Callum were, Morgan Mellor and myself, coming up with ideas for in-film SPECTRUM commercials, again promoting silence, suggesting it’s in the best interest of the public.
Sticking with the propaganda theme, Kirsty Cheetham and Oscar Peek were busy making in-design props. Kirsty worked on creating professional-looking SPECTRUM brochures for use in the film, and Oscar made some beautiful business cards for the Corporation.
