Four – Illinois International Film Festival

Posted in Current Projects, Four on September 12, 2009 by conorsound

Four was screened at the Music Box back in June.  It recently got accepted into the IIFF (Illinois International Film Festival).  It will be screened on October 24th at 9am.  Another chance to get to hear my work in a theater setting.  It will be screened at the Arcada theater in St. Charles.

Festival Schedule

More of my work will be shown on the last day of festival (the 25th).  My previous freelance job was doing production sound for promos for Digital Cinema at DePaul.  We shot 4 different promos.  I’m not sure what the structure is with showing the promos.  I just know they’ll be showing the last day.

Four Premiere

The journey came to an end last Wednesday.  Four is an international independent film I did sound for.  It involves four different stories in Paris, Amsterdam, Dublin, and Chicago.  I got hired for the project back in September of 08.

The turnout was amazing.  Everybody loved it and I got numerous compliments on my sound work.  The Music Box is an old, well known theater in Chicago mostly known for showing independent films, older films, and more cult oriented films (for the majority).

The director saying a few words.  I still can’t believe the amount of work and money he has put into his project.

What is next?  We might make some slight changes before we send it off to international festivals.  Hopefully the film can make it into Irish festivals so I have an excuse to travel there again.

I’m currently heading (supervising sound editor) the post-production sound team.  We make the finishing touches right before the screening at the Music Box. Juggling this and several other projects has a been a challenge.  I’m looking forward to completing the film.  It’s been my main focus since October of last year.  The amazing journey, starting from the intial trip to Europe, is almost over.

Independent Film

Back in October of 2008, I went to Europe to perform production sound duties.  The film was shot in four different cities (Paris, Amsterdam, Dublin, and Chicago).  Post-Production sound is about to begin.  I will be having a spotting session with the director shortly.  Then the sound duties will be divided amongst my sound team and I.  I recorded a bunch of sound effects while over there.  I will post them on here shortly as I start preparing background sound effects for the film.

Here’s the website for the film.  The trailer, updates, pictures, cast, and crew listings will be found within.

Father of the Flame Days 1-3

Production sound

– Days 1-3 –

I’ve been performing the production sound duties on this independent film.  I much rather prefer to just focus on post-production sound but I feel owe a favor to the director.  This is an intense shoot for an independent film.  I’m learning even more headaches that come with making a movie for production sound.  Sound always suffers on the independent project.  We don’t have the luxury of shooting on a sound stage.

I recorded some sound effects on set on the 1st day that I’ll post on here very soon

-Independent Film-

Pre-production is over.  We start shooting Friday.   I got hired for production and post sound on this film since it’s hard to come by a lot of sound guys in our network.  This is quite the ambitious shoot since we’re shooting with the Red Camera.  I’ll post more updates when shooting begins.
