Friday Mailbag (March 8th Edition)

It’s been a busy couple of weeks and we hadn’t had a chance to do this BUT, this week, we’re back at it! Here’s a recap of this week’s Friday mailbag from our Facebook page!

Susan Breece asks: “How long does it take to finish the movie after filming (like editing, etc)?”

Good question! Honestly, this varies from movie to movie. Sometimes it can take a year to edit, add special effects and all that jazz! For us, the process has been pretty smooth…thankfully (SPOILER ALERT!), we don’t have any explosions or alien landings.

We wrapped shooting at the end of September and went straight into the editing process. We’re tweaking the final credits as we speak so, all together, we spent about 5 months editing picture and sound, balancing color, adding a few visual effects and music!

Amy Porterfield asks: “Are you coming back to WV or VA to make anymore films in the future? You should really check rockbridge county in VA.”

We honestly LOVE that area of the country…obviously because WV is home, but also because it’s just absolutely gorgeous! We are developing a few other scripts/projects right now and it will all depend on what locations are called for in those stories.

But, trust us, if the story can be set there, we’ll be back. 🙂

MaryEllen Baker asks: “I’m wondering how did you choose music for the movie? With the movie being set in WV did you try and find native singers or songs?”

Most of the score is made up of either original music composed by Chris Eldridge or traditional songs that he chose and arranged with the amazing artists he brought in to record it! We had always known that we wanted Bluegrass/Old Time/Traditional music in the score, but Chris took it to a whole new level.

Within the film, J.T. actually wrote a role that called for a bluegrass/old time musician and a band to accompany him. Thankfully, WV native Homer Hunter came into our lives to fill those shoes and, with him, an extraordinarily talented group of local musicians who are featured throughout our film. 🙂

Susan Breece asks: “How did the casting process work? You really have some fantastic actors and actresses!”

It is a CRAZY PROCESS! It all starts with what they call a “Breakdown,” which is a list of all the characters and description of the role. That went out to agents who then submitted the actors that they thought fit each role. At the same time, we were calling agents and putting out offers to actors we wanted. It’s a fascinating process that requires a LOT of patience. We met with actors, talked to their representation, worked out availability (a GIANT jigsaw puzzle).

In the end, we got very lucky with our cast as we were able to assemble an AMAZING group of actors (both from L.A. and local) who believed in the story we were trying to tell and wanted to be a part of it!
