Carnival of Sorrows update: Preliminary filming is done!

Posted by Rich - 21st July 2014

Our apologies for the lack of updates on the film shoot and the campaign – it turned out the strain of filming left no-one to write updates on what’s been happening! So, here’s the summary:

  • We have officially wrapped the main shoot of the film – over 6 weeks of constant shoots, late nights, early mornings and frayed nerves.
  • In total, there were over two-and-a-half thousand takes, over 25 hours of footage and over 240 hours of on-set time logged!
  • Already, the first draft of the film is coming together, and last weekend the team sat down and watched the first rough edits of core moments from the shoot. Suffice to say, the hard work is certainly paying off, as even in this truly rough form, the film feels tighter and more refined than many of our prior films!

Over the course of the next few weeks, we hope to bring you regular news on our progress, behind-the-scenes updates from the shoot, and much more – many of these will be exclusive to our Kickstarter backers so, if you backed us, make sure you check out our Kickstarter page as well!
