Ok so, my weekly news post this week lacks specific information (I signed an NDA), however, it’s still interesting. Don’t leave, keep reading! So IM Global is currently working on a film called Viral, and it’s currently in post-production. After meeting with one of the execs in the office and explaining what i’m interested in, he gave me a rather large project that fit my interest exactly. He was going to show me each step of the process to create a film. So he introduced me to Viral. He gave me a series of steps to complete, and after each step we have to get together and discuss my thoughts and opinions.
Step 1: Read the draft script
Step 2: Read the actual production script
Step 3: Talk about budgeting, distributing, shooting, casting, etc.
Step 4: Watch the dailies from production.
This project has taught me so much about the process of producing films. I have never been so anxious to learn, ever. I got to see the changes they made from the draft, why they changed them, what the budget was, why this was the budget, etc. I am honestly so lucky to be interning with a company that truly cares to see their interns grow and learn more about an industry that we are so passionate about. I can’t exactly discuss when Viral will make its release, but know that when it does, you MUST watch it!
