So we have a cut. It’s a tad long. But it’s in great shape thanks to Giovanni our talented editor. Tomorrow we begin the journey to bring the films together in the best quality available, from the supplied drives. We have been working in a kind of ‘offline world’ for the edit as there are so many films in so many different formats.
One major challenge we face now is the end of the film as we don’t really have a satisfactory conclusion.
We are deep into the edit of Impact50 now and hoping to have a completed cut by the end of the year.
More ‘concept album’ than ‘playlist’, the building of a feature film from all the films submitted is taking some management, creativity and occasionally flashes of inspiration.
But it’s looking really great!
Every film made for a Create50 has two potential lives. First and foremost, each film takes its place in the final Create50 film, making its way to a big screen alongside the work of other filmmakers in a celebration of creative collaboration.
The second life is as a standalone film, allowing the filmmakers to send their film out into the world through festivals, social media, short film platforms - whatever. Watch the original version HERE.
