Dear Diary,

There are too many things screaming in my head at the same time; I cannot differentiate between

my thoughts and the voices.

 

7:
We are currently looking for colorists, foley artists, composures to write a score, and any marking majors or recent graduates which would like to assist in the process of post-production for The Skin. You can contact us at Sublimationsinema@google.com.

 

OCTOBER

24:
The pickups and reshoots have been completed. Photography was challenging as the special effects seemed to function as an obstacle but the team managed to pull through and finish in two days. We now have picture wrap on The Skin.

 

11:
The Ss team is preparing for special effects pickup shots and reshoots for The Skin. A skeleton crew and Sarah Byington will helps us finish photography on The Skin.

 

SEPTEMEBER

27:
Post production update: We are taking our time on the second edit and making sure we have the correct momentum of the movie. We are planning on having this complete at the beginning of next year.

 

13:
HorroHound was great! We showed 2 exclusive clips from The Skin at the Ss booth. The response and feedback was excellent and suggested that we are heading the right direction with the movie. We cannot wait to reveal the full movie to the world!!!!!!

I would like to thank all the people and new friends who visited the Ss booth at HororHound Weekend in Indianapolis. We very much appreciate the support and interest.

All of our merchandise and promotional material for our booth at HorrorHound is either ordered, on route, or has arrived. Indianapolis here we come.

The Skin is in post!!!! I would like to thank all who have supported the project. The Skin is coming.

Post-Production Update: 8 hours spent last night syncing audio... everything is ready for cutting... 2 1/2 hours of footage left to review for tonight. 53 hours clocked!

 

22:
Day 4 on The Skin!!!!! This is the last day and it is another heavy special effects day. Josephine and Sarah gave great performances and pushed through a tough schedule. The day was challenging and long but we managed to get through. Josephine had the most deal with being in the creature costume. It was think, heavy, and hot but she did not complain and still gave a great performance. All of our cast was amazing!!!!!!!! Ss was definitely spoiled with talent on this production. The crew worked their butts off to make everything run as smoothly as possible.

 

21:
Day 3: Day 3 of production for The Skin!!!!!
And the first of two SPFX-laden days. With all the effects today, we had some delays in the schedule but nothing too serious; we worked out the schedule for such circumstances. We are still working hard and having fun. Thank you to Miguel Cantu from Altered Visions for joining the production team on short notice and bring for creepy thoughts to physical reality.

 

20:
Day 2 was Bloody and fun! There was a little bit of blood and some excellent performances from our lead Shiree Nelson. Cannot wait to see what day three will be like. Tomorrow we have the arrival of the rest of our cast Josephine McAdam and Sarah Byington.

 

19:
Day 1 went smoothly. The crew is working perfectly with each other and getting along. We shoot the majority of our exteriors and enjoyed the scenery of the park while doing it. Joe Shamel, our cameraman, is getting some great shots. And Amber making sure they are beautiful. Glad the first day was a light day of shooting.

 

8:
Exactly one week from production, time for an update! Casting is locked down just waiting on a final contract before we announce our amazing cast. Our special effects team is creating an amazing torso sculpt, the art department is in the process of coming up with a vision for decorating the rooms. Everyone attached to the skin is giving 110% and is greatly appreciated! We are still looking for a couple of grips, if you are interested contact us. Can't wait to start shooting!!!

Principal photography is complete on the teaser! Everyone was tired and sleep deprived, and that's usually when problems occur, not with this crew at all! I just want to thank everyone again for being completely awesome! The edit is almost completed and we have some music already written for it. Be on the lookout for some behind-the-scenes pictures very soon.

The first day of shooting for the investor’s mock-teaser trailer for The Skin went very well. The whole crew clicked and it was a blast. We mainly captured exteriors and a couple of light and pre-special effect shots. Tomorrow is going to be a heavy SPFX day. Cannot wait.
