Happy 2014! After months of collective hard work, the very first test screening of She Moved Through The Fair has taken place in Bristol!
The initial cut of the film was shown to a select audience of cast, crew, sponsors and supporters at the Watershed, in Bristol’s historic Floating Harbour. At this stage the film contained little music and no grading, sound or effects work; the purpose was to receive feedback on the plot and pacing.
The audience really engaged with the film, even at this early stage, and there was much discussion and swapping of interpretations during the drinks reception afterwards. The reception was hosted in Avery’s Wine Cellars, one of the film’s main sponsors, and took place in the same cellar as one of the film’s climactic locations.
All in all, it was a very successful evening, which we sincerely hope everybody enjoyed. We have had a lot of constructive feedback and responses to the initial cut, which we can take on board as we continue to polish and tighten the film. And of course, after all this time it was brilliant to finally watch the film on a big screen and present our work to an audience, albeit in an incomplete state.
Here’s to the next cut, and the final product being ready in April!
