Good news! I know it's been a LONG time since I've updated this blog, but I am pleased to announce that "NYZ" is going to have its world premiere next month Saturday March 24th at NYU's First Run Film Festival!
I've been spending the past year mostly working on getting a job and securing my finances. However, I have been slowly chipping away at "NYZ," working on it whenever I can usually on the odd night or weekends, working with composer Ryan Kupchick last autumn on the score, finalizing color correction, making some special effects to sweeten the visuals, and, more recently, the sound design.
I regret not being able to get with a sound editor, but with the budget non-existant, I had to take it on myself, and I am no stranger to sound design, having worked on "The Sunset" by Misha Sundokovskiy from last year's First Run, and "Knee High" by Alexandra Naides, which premiered at the All Sports Los Angeles Film Festival last year and will be screening in New York both at First Run and at the Film Anthology Archives for NewFilmmakers NY in two weeks.
Anyway, I'll post more details about the upcoming screening when NYU updates the festival website. Stay tuned!
