We had the first screening of Antarctica: A Year On Ice, at the Ice Fest last week, and I am getting a lot of really great feedback. There is one more screening on October 2nd. If you are in the area tickets can be found here.
We are treating these showings as advanced preview test screenings, and gathering feedback to give the film a final tweak before going for a wider release next year. This means another few months of editing and sound work to bring it up to the best standard possible.
Plan 9 have done a fantastic job on the music, and Simon Price has been working hs magic on the screen story and editing. Also, some more great news is that Tim Prebble is keen to jump on board as sound designer/engineer to give it a full cinematic 5.1 sound mix.
I just appeared in a feature story on the TVNZ Sunday show, which was watched by about 1 million people locally, you can see it for yourself by clicking here. They did a great job, there are some great behind the scenes shots in there.
I donated a number of my photos to be used at the Ice Festival, this one of the Barne Glacier is being used as a backdrop for the Ice Skating Rink. It looks quite impressive on site printed out 5 meters tall.
