Sept 1st 2014.
This is an anniversary weekend. On this weekend a few years ago, Right Hand Drive production was supposed to wrap. Saturday was the last planned day of shooting but 2am came and we found it impossible to complete all the shots. Sunday was a day off and Monday was a bank holiday. We had no choice but to send everyone home and reconvene on the following Tuesday for one last day.
** Update** Feb 2014.
Finally the movie is available for streaming on Amazon. Check it out here: Don't forget to write a review!

To all our friends, fans, cast and crew . . . MERRY CHRISTMAS and a Happy New Year for 2013!

CAST AND CREW SCREENING at Whirled ART. It was great to see all of you who came out to see the private premiere London Screening last Sunday. Especially those of you who came all the way from the West Country. Some of us came all the way across the Atlantic, and it was very gratifying to see your reactions.

Post Production is officially finished on 'Right Hand Drive'. Applause!
Champagne please . . . ahhh I'm sorry, but the money for the Champagne toast was spent on ADR!!
Never mind. This is indeed a good day, and well worth waiting for. Now begins the voyage to the audience. We trust it won't be as long as it took to reach today!
** Update** 12th October 2008.
Sound design is complete! Color grading is complete!
With the finished Sound tracks arriving from London "Right Hand Drive" will be completed this week. Sound and picture will be reunited , and yes, the film will be finished. Very exciting news indeed! We will be cutting DVD's and arranging for the HD master and having a minor celebration. Details of a Premiere to follow.
All rights for "Right Hand Drive" are still available.
Well, this is the month we should finish, and we're getting close but maybe not quite close enough to make it this month. ADR has been taking place throughout July and that has been a cause of some delay due to the difficulty some actors have had in breaking away and coming in to the recording studio. The final 3 weeks of mixing should be taking place this month, but looks like it will slip due to the outstanding last remaining ADR session.
Color grading proceeds at a good pace, on schedule in the US, and yes, the film has been submitted to the Toronto Film Festival.

CELEBRATION! For the past month, Peter Hollywood of New Media Ventures has been finishing the picture edit, and we finally have locked the picture!
Peter, works at Pinewood Studios just outside of London. (firstname.lastname@example.org) The picture now moves over to the Sound Designer, for Foley, ADR and EFX work. So with the score underway and preparation beginning for picture color grading, it looks like a finished film is a distinct possibility for August. Celebration indeed! A year later than planned, but nevertheless an exciting milestone.

The big news this week is having the pleasure of George Kallis join us to score the music for the film. George (www.george-kallis.com) is a highly regarded new film composer based in London UK. He most recently scored the music for the latest Highlander film, Highlander-The Source.
We are still seeking a finishing editor, and a Sound designer, but we may have some announcements on that subject very shortly. Finishing funds are extremely tight, so we are always interested in hearing from any investors who can see the potential in this great film.
Since our last update, the whole movie has been successfully transferred from the Cineform based PC edit solution onto Apple's Final Cut Pro. Life is a lot simpler without the continual crashes!!
Check back soon for more updates.
For all of you who've emailed, asking about release dates and the trailer. Thanks for your interest. As soon as we are close to having distribution in place you'll be the first to know.
The trailer is waiting on the sound work so it's not too far away now.
Principal photography took place during August 2006 in various locations in Wiltshire. Shot on HDCAM AND the Silicon Imaging SI-1920HDVR, post-production is now in progress in the USA.
