I am excited to announce that NORMAN has been officially selected to premiere at the Richmond International Film Festival in April! I am so happy to finally start showing it to the public, and what a great place to start our festival run than within my home state of Virginia.
We have prepared a special video update for all of you to give you an idea of whats been going on lately and where the film is at. First I explain what we are doing next with our finished film, IE: Sales, distribution, film festivals, and our hopes to get it out to you as soon as we can.
I have tried to capture along the years, the process of making this film, and I wanted the same for the premiere of NORMAN. I had my friend record day of the premiere for everyone to join in on the fun. We are so excited to finally be finished with the film, and are ready and already moving onto the sales and distribution phase of the project.
Words cannot describe how I feel. I will have more to share soon, but I need time to just take this all in right now. The sense of relief is unbelievable. I am SO proud of this film and all who helped make it happen.
About 120 days ago, we set an ambitious goal to be 100% done by July 20th. We had finally gotten to a point in this extremely long and tiring production where we knew we had all the pieces to finally put together this puzzle.
When Adam and Sam told me that all of the visual effects had been completed for Norman, I took my camera with me and captured some really interesting off the cuff interviews about what it was like working on Norman, and completing the monumental task that I had given them.
Norman is coming along well, and we expect to have the first half of foley finished in the next two weeks, with the second half early to mid November. Things have been a bit stressful for myself and my brother lately, having to do a bunch of extra free lance jobs, and balancing work, family, and life on top of finding time to keep chugging along with Norman.
It's been awhile since our last sound update, so while I was over at Jonah's studio the other day, I recorded a quick update on how things are going. Jonah estimates he has about 25-30% left of the film to do until he is done. We are making major progress.
