Opening film to Zanzibar International Film Festival

New postby Faisal Lutchmedial on Thu May 19, 2011 5:31 pm

Making the Band, directed by Phad Mutumba, will be making it's world premiere at the biggest arts and film festival in East and Central Africa. I co-wrote it, shot it, and edited it. We shot virtually everything in the movie with an HVX Brevis combo.

Some stills below. The photo in the festival website was just from a point and shoot.

We're still editing actually, they accepted the film on an early rough cut. When we have some moving pictures I will post. We shot 720p with the HVX if you were curious about the resolution, but we are happy with the images regardless of the relative sharpness.

Big kudos to you and your crew, Faisal! Just getting an ambitious project like this actually done is a major accomplishment, so getting it premiered at a big festival is a well-deserved feather in your cap; we hope this exposure will generate a lot of attention (and hopefully some sales!). Cinevate proud and honoured to have been part of it.
The stills look great, hope you'll have a chance to post a trailer when you have a moment.

Thanks so much Hubert - we are happy with this one, definitely. Done on a very small budget, with the help of lots of cinevate gear for my hvx. Here is the trailer we whipped up for it.

Hey Faisal

Great footage! I forgot that the HVX can actually make some quality images, lol. Best of luck at the festival and keep us updated on your work.

Thanks Luke! The film went on to win a couple awards at the fest! We're really happy about its success, and the amazing amount of support we got from the festival.
