more sound recording

Here are some photos of Alex and Julien recording more sounds for Reel 2.
Such a  romantic a job compared to most of the film making process which is basically
sitting in a room with computers all day.

Alex went to Brittany to record and even found an old car like Grannys.

I heard Felix's first pass on Reel 1 on Monday, its really sounding great and its amazing to hear Cu barking like a really big English sheepdog instead of the library temp efx we got used to all thru production.
It really gives that a character presence in the movie that he didnt have before this step.

As sound design continues our Foley artist Julien has send some photos from his studio in Angouleme , France.

I cant wait to hear what he has come up with in Paris next week.

We are reaching the last phases of compositing on the last two reels in Liege and we had a big screen test in Paris last week where we saw some of the first reels  images on the big , big screen.
Everything is there to see on the big screen! Stuff you would never spot on a smaller computer monitor like the really subtle painted textures on the characters and the detailed linework by Adrien and his team on the Bgs.

I'm working now on designing the posters and we are starting to think about possible book publishing deals and other tie in promotional ideas with our partners...exciting times ;-)
