Gabriel Coss from Rojo Chiringa helps out with editing and finishes rough cut for screening at the FESTIVAL DE CINE EUROPEO held in Fine arts Cinemas Miramar. We screened LA LINEA IMAGINARIA as a rough cut with temp tracks. Although a solid screening, the film needs an original music score, further editing and a proper Sounddesign.
MARCEL BARSOTTI, renowmed swiss-italian composer for the German blockbuster films DIE PäPSTIN & DIE HEBAMME agrees to score the picture. After discussions, MARCELS embarks on a musical journey with heavy synthethizer wok and voices. He constructs a wonderful soundtrack that emotionally underscores the story. the score is available on iTunes, Spotify and other social media outlets.
FINAL steps with CHANNEL WIPR and tHE FONDO TALLER DRAMATICO LUCY BOSCANA are undertaken to secure a partial sale of the rights to the film in Puerto Rico. This helps to pay a part of production costs. LA LINEA IMAGINARIA will be screened later in the year as part of WIPR and its app WIPR+. This helps repay a loan undertaken to finance the filming of three days of shooting. The total estimated budget of the film is $46,000.
After a brief hiatus, Philip Escobar Jung re edits the film for a final Festival Version. the film is two minutes shorter and contains the new soundtrack from MARCEL BARSOTTI. Partial color correction on added shots is made and subtitles are created.
ARJUN DEMEYERE agrees to jump on board as Sounddesigner. Having worked with Philip before, ARJUn begins the painstaking work of creating the soundscape off the film, which includes cleaning up dialogues, reducing ocean noise and adding atmospheric sounds to the picture.
Philip submits to THE PR FILM COMMISSION (CORP. DE CINE DE PR) a request for funding for postproduction and marketing costs. LA LINEA IMAGINARIA created about 50 jobs for local crews and injected about $46,000 into the Puerro Rico economy. But those funds were paid by private monies from SUPER SEVEN FILMS which need to be recouped in order to continue shooting movies in Puerto Rico. SUPER SEVEN FILMS is awaiting their response.
CROWDFUNDING CAMPAIGN 2 for POSTPRODUCTION AND MARKETING will be LAUNCHED. The funds are needed to finish sounddesign and finish the final mix of the movie fro cinema projection in surround sound 5.1. They will also help secure a budget for submissions to film festivals across the world and for the creation of print and marketing materials such as posters, t shirts, Banners, etc.. The funds will also help set a proper film premiere to be held in Puerto Rico..
Talks begin to hold a proper CINEMA PREMIERE-FUNDRAISNG EVENT in the refurbished ROOSEVELT CINEMA in Hato Rey.
