Normaliteten (Normality), How it came to be, pt 2

July 2011 (yup, this is a long story, but you have to spend rendertime doing something) Sanctuary was kinda “almost” finished, but didn’t really make it out the door. The angle on the narrator was yet not right, and we lacked a voice. Tuva had convinced med that we should work on these two new major projects, “Normality” and an unrealized project. It had become clearer to me that what we were working on and studying and collecting material for, since the start-up with Sanctuary, was something along the line…

Normaliteten (“Normality”) – The way we came to make it – Part 1

Tuva and I met on the set of an “arty” short, Arien. In the shower… Me with the camera, she as an actor. I had been working mostly with producing/filming/directing commercials and internal films for companies the previous years, but wanted to get back to long-form and fiction, which I had worked with as a musician/composer. I had made a very unsuccessful short the previous summer and was generally a bit confused about where and what to take work. Not happy with what I did, and not really seeing ways…

Tech Fun – Resolve

  Prepping an edit-screening with assembled audio and rough-grade. And until rendering, everything turned out just fine in Resolve. Resolve has a few quirks still (at least the copy I am sitting on here) When conforming RED-RAW files you must change the default TC setting in the RED-RAW tab. from “Camera” to “Absulute”, then it conforms like a dream from a FCP7 XML. This time a lot of the “basic motion” settings did not come over.   Bliss is that basic retiming works. But I am not on the latest…

Normality

  Some 4 years ago, Tuva approached me with the idea of making a new movie. About everything “Normal”. We had just finnished recording (and was far from even approaching the early stages of editing) Sanctuary. I guess I was initially less than enthused. But eventually she had me over. (She can be rather convincing) and we started working on the idea. Not sure if I regret that or not. It has been the most bumpy road imaginable. On many levels. But all of a sudden I am sitting here…
