Dodgy, Hand-painted Cover Art which Vaguely Resembles Contents of Movie - Check!

Working on the DVD now. Going for an old VHS look, as with the film itself. I have sent a copy to Trasharama but I think I might get it swapped by the copy I did today.

Which is THE FINAL CUT! on Monday the 31st of August.

Still need to talk to ABC gallery and set a date for the screening.

Almost, but no Banana

I've sent a copy of the film to Trasharama. But I'm not happy with the sound and plan to re-send it.
I basically want to turn it all down and the music up.

I've also started work on the DVD, the cover, I've decided to hand paint (to the best of my ability) in a Frank Frezetta style.

Here's a dodgy photo of it in progress I took with the world's crapest phone.

I've whiped up a trailer and stuck it on Youtube.

Good thing someone else is doing the titles cos the one I knocked up ain't so hot.

You can hear how well the music works tho.

Music Score

I spent a couple of sessions with Peter Jetnikoff who has composed and performed the excellent music on an old synthesiser called a KORG MS-20. John Carpenter used it on all of his films and so did all the old Atari games. That's a total lie, but it did come out in 1978, the same year as Halloween. Daft Punk use one as well.

We've gone for a "John Carpenter" feel which a few people will notice, as well as it sounding very eighties.

P.J. also runs a film night, called Shadows, at the ABC gallery where we'll have our cast and crew screening of the film. More about that later. There's a link to Shadows in this blogs profile section.
