Editing the Whisperer
It seems like I first saw the teaser trailer for "The Whisperer in the Darkness" forever ago. When could I see this follow up to the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society's excellent "The Call of Cthulhu"? Why keep me in suspense?
Well, I eventually learned that the teaser was just that -- a teaser. Footage shot just to whet our appetites before beginning production on the actual movie.
When last Unfilmable checked in, they were in the midst of shooting, but now it's getting exciting... the movie has been shot (mostly) and editor/director of photograpy David Robertson is culling through some 50 hours of HD footage, looking for just the right shots.
Speaking of which, a few images have been posted over at the Whisperer production blog. These aren't snapshots, they came right out of the edit timeline, so you can see the quality we can look forward to in the final product.
Voice over actors have also been busy, recording Wilmarth, Akeley, Noyes, B-67 and a Mi-Go for "sections of dialogue which have no accompanying picture."
