A Banshee’s First Year

None of us can believe we’ve been working on The Babbling Banshee for a year now. We’ve filmed, completed pick-ups (snow–LOTS of snow–happened and we had to postpone shooting some scenes), put together a very rough cut, filmed re-shoots, and recorded a good bulk of the ADR.

On New Year’s Day, Russell, Cindy, Chris, Meagan, Bryan and I sat down to watch the rough cut of The Babbling Banshee. Not all of the re-shoots were incorporated back into the rough cut yet and the film still lacks audio/Foley, color correction, and animation; however, it was gratifying to see everything put together. Progress!

In the new year, we push forward with post-production on Banshee. We have set a very ambitious completion date but, as almost everyone is working on this film part-time, we’ve had to admit to ourselves that our projected end date is flexible. Animation will probably be the most time-consuming aspect of post-production. Fortunately, Russell will be able to work more or less full-time on animation. Our editor, Ben, has a number of tweaks on the rough cut to work on before beginning work on color correction. As aforementioned, Nick has already done the majority of the ADR and will be doing some more in the next few weeks. Nick will also be composing the score for Banshee once Ben is done tweaking the rough cut.

Chris will be working on a trailer in the near future and we hope Russell will somehow find some time to do some posters and lobby cards. Once these promo items are ready, we will finally go live with a Banshee Facebook fan page. Fear not, we will post details when we have new content ready for your perusal. Keep an eye on the Starrynight Productions’ Facebook fan page and our Twitter account for future announcements.

Happy New Year!
