The film festival journey begins with good news! In December 2021 we entered the Docs Without Borders Film Festival and we were selected for the 2022 festival and received an award! A great start to what will most likely be over a year-long adventure of a film festival run! Stay tuned – more good news to share soon!
Sound mix is done! The bubbles are poppin’ thanks to MelodyGun Sound Studio! Look out Film Festivals here we come!
We are in the final phase of post-production and are so excited our film will soon be ready to send out to the festival world.
The final edit will be complete by the end of August! Then we move on to color grading and we are thrilled to share that Persephanie Engle of Neptune Post is going to make those Beauty Bubble turquoise and pinks pop! Next is sound mix (where actual bubble pop in addition to equalizing dialogue and other sounds).
MUSIC: We are delighted the film is full of beautiful songs written and performed by Jeff Hafler and his brother Jamie Hafler. There will be some original score elements as well.
ANIMATION: Our awesome animator Lily Ericsson is working on the final animated elements (dare we say more bubbles and maybe a jackrabbit or two?).
So many details when it comes to completing a film!
CREDITS: As we develop the final credit roll we want to include as many names as possible. If you contributed $50 or above your name will be in that credit roll. If you would like to bring your level up to $50, and have your name on the credits, please do so by August 31st. You may contribute directly to The Chimaera Project (donate button at the top of this page) and be sure to include a note that it’s for IBB.
Please know that we are extremely grateful to you! You are a valuable member of our Inside the Beauty Bubble community! Thank you for every follow, share and contribution.
Stay tuned for future updates about how you can see Inside the Beauty Bubble.
