For the last few weeks we’ve been developing an electronic press kit to accompany ‘GIFT’ at film festivals. EPKs make it easy for festival organizers and journalists to quickly get lots of information about your film at once–production notes, synopses, reviews, cast & crew lists, posters, production stills and so on. They’re an essential part of the overall film package that helps people get a sense of what the film is about and what went into creating it.
We thought it would be nice to share a few of the production stills here to give you all a sneak peek at what ‘GIFT’ looks like. We’ll also be editing a trailer over the next couple of weeks, and we will certainly post that on this site as well as a new standalone web site we’re developing just for ‘GIFT.’
During pre-production I had developed detailed “mood boards” showing the looks, color palettes, and overall visual tone I was going for. I went back and reviewed those notes recently, and I was struck by how close we had come to those early concept images in the finished film. Other posts on this site have talked about how hard our amazing crew worked to deliver this level of cinematography, and I am excited to finally have the chance to share production stills with you.
Please let us know what you guys think of the production stills!
