A friend of mine who recently finished a round of crowd-funding to wrap up production on a years-long passion project of his about the cryptozoological phenomenon known as (many names, including) Sasquatch reached out recently because he wanted to re-master his final cut for submission to film festivals.
The film festival business has always interested me since a previous film I worked on, Kayfabe (2007), was a contender in many indie film festivals and won a handful of trophies (woo hoo!). Today, it's a much easier process to submit - there are services like Withoutabox which, as long as you have the festival submission fees handy (not a new phenomenon), allow you to easily submit to the big banner film festivals and the niche festivals that suit your style of film-making best. It's a brilliant yet elegant solution to the challenges for filmmakers to get their creations in front of interested audiences.
At any rate, the work Darcy (Weir, the director) and I did was brisk, essentially he had no sound post done in the final cut he had released to his crowd-funding backers and so we we able to put the multi-track into the edit and make some repairs, re-mix various scenes and interviews and add some voice-over. There was also a bit of music added and remixing of tracks he had acquired from producers Lee Lustig and Trevor Browne. It was a real trip.
