Even though Kyle was out of town on vacation, we wrapped up our reshoots for Maudie (my favorite thing I’ve written and directed, to date). I’d love to show you the film in its current, near-complete format, but I’m afraid that will have to wait until after festival season. So far, we’ve submitted to about a dozen fests and have had two different festivals reach out to us after coming across our IMDB page. Although I can’t show you the entire film, here are a few of my favorite stills from the reshoot:
Unfortunately, the earliest we’ll hear back about any of the festivals is December, with others not guaranteeing feedback until as far out as next summer. But I’m sure we’ll get into at least one or two, and I’ll do my best to update this page accordingly.
One last thing I should mention. I wrote down the Sundance deadline incorrectly (because I looked up the submission dates for 2017 instead of 2018, like a dummy) so we ended up in a position where we needed a composer to fix our sound design in less than 24 hours. I hired a guy from Boston named Dallas McKinney…and he did not disappoint. If you need a composer for your project, he comes highly recommended.
