PREY – Title Intro

I pretty much have the Title graphics done tonight…and it’s looking really cool. I was a little worried that the film wouldn’t have a solid opening shot, but as of tonight it’s starting to round that corner. After tweaking the camera curves, the move looks really smooth and solid now. I ended up with this […]

Priest – Not Bad / Prey – On final Lap…

 A film that kind of came and went really fast a few months ago, I picked up the BluRay of Priest that just released. I wasnt expecting much, but Adam McKay posted a link to the trailer mentioning that he had worked on it, so I thought it would be a decent study piece for […]

New Corridor Digital Vid –

Nuts as usual. This new Corridor Digital piece has this fun Video Game / Music Graphic style to it. Pretty crazy VFX. Looks like they had a lot of fun shooting it.

Luggage Trailer – Go Ivana!

Ivana sent out an E-mail the other day asking people to check out the trailer for this film she’s in. It actually looks pretty cool. I really like the theme and look of this. I remember seeing this a while back when it was just a little snippet of what there is here now. I […]

Holy Smok’n PREY Track Batman! –

How do you make your Film instantly a little better? Just add a track from Troy Stetina’s Exotica CD! Last night I was working on the end credit sequence which is looking killer, and It was time I needed to put together a music track for it. As I normally do, I put in a temp […]

Eric on Good Morning Sacramento –

Eric was on Good Morning Sacramento doing an alien skin make-over on one of the hosts and getting some good publicity going for his Face-Off run. There is still time to get a vote or two in before the SyFy polls close tonight to help secure his place on the show. I’m sure he would […]

It’s been a busy weekend. Spending some hard time on Prey which is coming together really well. Lauren and Lylah came over for ADR this afternoon and that went really well. The tracks went in just fine and outside of Joe Hurley’s Dialog I plan on getting Tuesday evening I’m pretty much done with all […]

PREY – Update 8.12 – SbiG News

Last night I managed to get most of the Audio done for the second half of the film. I reconstructed the stair ascend shot with footsteps, and adjusted EQ to offset the sound of the steps as they travelled up to the second floor. I matched the reverb in the room with the dialog so […]

PREY – Fun with Audio

[audio:http://www.midnightdrivepictures.com/blog/audio/neckrip_soundFX.mp3] Working on audio tonight for prey, I have a good majority of the upper floor scenes finished for dialog and some of the SoundFX. I have to ADR the initial walk up the stairs due to those obnoxiously annoying DJ light motors…but most of the other stuff worked pretty well. I did some notch […]

PREY – Snippet

Working on Sound…and more sound… got some more ADR work done tonight with Ivana and Laylah. I put together this really quick snippet for Lylah to show some peeps for a Vampire role she’s auditioning for. This was an extremely quick throw together, and I loosened up the edit to show a little more of Layah […]
