Hello everyone. I’ve been getting lots of inquiries as to the status of NEW. Mostly of the “is it done yet?” variety. The short answer: almost. Admittedly that’s been my short answer for a while. Completing this film seems to be a task akin to accelerating to the speed of light. The closer you get, the harder is to get the rest of the way there.
There is progress, however: on June 27, I spent the day in San Francisco with colorist Gary Coates. We went over the color grading he’d done on the film, and I got a crash course on how to fine-tune things to get the final look we want. At this point, I can tell you NEW is looking more beautiful than ever before.
It’s sounding beautiful too: multi-talented actor/performing artist/composer Pete Stringfellow is creating original musical for the film. Pete also plays the role of the bartender in the final scene, so you’ll be seeing his name roll by a couple of times in NEW’s credits.
And as for when you can see it… it won’t be long now. Considering it’s now July, certainly we’re a bit behind where we’d hoped we’d be by now. For those of you who’ve been waiting, thanks for your patience. Hang in there. More news will be coming soon.
