ADR is an opportunity to re-record dialogue before finish the sound on a film. Kevin Joy plays the role of “Eric” in Private Life and spent a day in the studio recently.
During production in fall of 2012, cast and crew camped for 4 days and 3 nights in the San Bernardino National Forest. These are a small collection of pictures from that time. The location was beautiful. The hours were long. The cast and crew were fantastic, in great spirits, tireless and completely dedicated.
It’s a major milestone. For five months, we have focused in the picture editing process on telling the story visually–from which scenes are in the movie and which are out, to shaping those scenes down to the blink of an actor’s eye. It provides the backbone for the rest of the post-production process. Now we set picture editing
aside and move on to everything else needed to polish and finish the film: shooting pickups, editing sound, creating an original score, visual effects, color grading.
Amy Adler has done an excellent job editing the film into something we are eager to share. Check out her bio here on our website under the Crew tab. It’s very exciting to see the film taking shape!
We have wrapped production on Private Life! It was 10 intense and demanding days to be sure, but with such a great cast and crew, it was really a fantastic experience.
Production took us through a number of locations, including a number of places in Angeles National Forest; Mountain View Cemetery in Altadena, CA; San Bernardino National Forest; a private house in Van Nuys, CA; a sound stage at USC; and we even built a bridge in the parking lot of the Robert Zemeckis Center at school (a location often touted within our USC circle for its ability to become just about anything for shoots with hazardous conditions).
With principle photography completed, Amy Adler steps up to the plate to begin editing the film. Transcoding and syncing is finished and the very first cut is now beginning. Editing will take us through December, with Picture Lock scheduled at the very end of the year.
We are proud to announce that the three main roles in the film have been cast! Greg and the cast recently did a table read together. It was an exciting moment to hear the words on page spoken by aloud by the wonderful actors that will bring these characters to life on the screen. Expect an announcement on just who these talented actors are very soon!
‘Private Life’ has been very fortunate to have Mike Page (www.imdb.com/name/nm2969001) on board as our Casting Director. Mike is currently working on ‘Arrow’ new upcoming series from David Nutter that will be premiering on the CW network this fall. Mike brought in an incredible amount of talented actors to read, making the casting process very challenging! Greg was very thorough in the process, sitting down one-on-one with the final round of actors to discuss the script and the characters. Greg had this to say about the process: “It’s been a really fantastic experience. I’m so grateful to be able to take time to make this choice as it’s an incredibly important one.”
And now those choices have been made. Be sure to check back soon for an official announcement on who the main cast is! If you haven’t already sign up for our newsletter to get all the latest info on ‘Private Life’.
