Adam here. We're entering the final phase of postproduction - sound mixing - and I'm really loving how it's shaping up. Composer/music supervisor Joe Bishara - who's been doing a truly kickass job - and I have searched out the coolest and most evil sounding bands we could get our hands on. Here are some of them...
It's unmistakably director Adam Gierasch. Calling me on a Saturday afternoon to discuss my participation in some of the additional shooting that's taking place on Night of the Demons (read this blog entry for more details). He's asking how I feel about worms. Night crawlers. Oligochaeta. Given our previous conversation, in which he detailed my role and what I'd be doing, I was at first hesitant. Where was he going with this?
"I'm fine with worms, why?" I ask.
"We'll be putting them on your lower back for the scene you're in."
Silence on my part. Then I surrender with, "Okay." After all, I'm not an actor by any means and an opportunity like this doesn't come often. It'll be fun for a laugh. Plus, Adam, and his fiancée/writing partner Jace Anderson, have been friends of mine for years. I'm not going to complain if they want to add some wriggling, wet worms to the scene I'll be participating in.
What does your typical demon do when it's not wreaking havoc, possessing hapless partygoers and heralding in the end of the world? That's the question we've been debating in NOTD-world lately. Trust me, "watching TV" or "running errands" aren't on our list of answers. Let's just say that when our demons get to inhabit a body, they have a little fun with it…
The room is dim. Two figures huddle in front of three monitors, which cast the only light.
Eddie Furlong appears on screen. "Angela, I can't find the basement…can you help me? Please?"
The scene stops. The figures mutter at each other. "When does he stand up? Try cutting right before that." The scene repeats. The figures mutter. The scene repeats again.
So, as Jace told you, DEMONS is done shooting. It was a long and sometimes very difficult process. We had a lot of stuff to shoot in a limited amount of time (isn't it always that way?). But the good news is that, from the stuff I've seen cut together, it looks pretty damn cool. My DP, Yaron Levy, was awesome and he worked his ass off. The demon makeup looks great, and we got a couple of good gore scenes, too. The actors did exceptionally well, especially considering that there was a lot of running, falling, exploding squibs, and stabs (not to mention a tube of lipstick). I should be able to have a trailer for you guys pretty soon.
That’s right – principal photography for Night of the Demons is done. Over. Finito. The blood’s been mopped off the soundstage floor, and it’s time for Adam, editor Andrew Cohen and composer Joe Bishara to start the slow and oh-so-important post-production process.
Wuzzup guys and ghouls! Wowee! I am almost done and I am nooooot happy about it. I am having so much fun in
From the "a picture is worth 1000 words" department...
