Behold! It’s our champa tree, still clothed in its blessed strings! Kulap's incantations helped it thrive into our living, breathing post-production mascot. The champa’s first bloom marks today's one-year anniversary of our successful IGG campaign and the start of our project's third act. All the additional shoots, storyboarding, experimenting and rewrites have led us here. Now intimate edit-bay brainstorms are mixed in with monthly screenings for the whole crew. Next we'll be approving final graphics and musical score, while debating the micro-trims that'll make all the difference.
While you await "Origin Story," meet the stellar post-production team tasked with turning Kulap’s emotional trip into a dynamic mixed-media motion graphic novel. Our newest additions join our editor, Oona Flaherty, who came to us last winter following her work on “Rudderless,” “Welcome to Me” and “Dope.”
Composers Steve Jablonsky and Michael Cassady have joined forces for this project. Jablonsky has scored the “Transformers” series, “Gangster Squad” and “Ender’s Game,” in addition to “Desperate Housewives” and various video games. Cassady is a musician and actor with roots in the UCB theater who’s contributed music to “Don’t Trust the B- in Apartment 23,” “The Dramatics” and “Freak Dance.” The two are working closely to create a complex, cohesive sound for the film, with its live action travel footage, emotional interviews and illustrated sequences. Meanwhile, Graphic Artist Kevin Dalton is bringing key moments in Kulap's story to life using a pastiche of stylistic approaches and cultural influences. We are overjoyed at the results thus far and can’t wait to meet you at the finish.
Thank you, as always, for helping us get there.
