On Saturday July 2nd, 2016 two Inserts were shot for the movie STASH. The shoot went very well in Brooklyn, New York.
Thanks to Almog Pail for such a comfortable location. Big time thanks for the wonderful meal her Fiance Arnon made for us. Delicious!
Great work from Stash Editor Jason Paluck for being the DP on this day and to Sarah Michellee Bedrick for making not only Almog look great, but matching the continuity that the character “Faith Daniels” was in during the terrifying climax of the movie filmed almost 2 years earlier.
Filmmaker Terry R. Wickham is happy to announce that the inserts needed for the climax of the slow-burn, character focused suspense film Stash will take place Saturday July 2, 2016 in Brooklyn, New York.
The director elaborates, “Originally I thought we would need around 6 or7 pickup shots to make the end of the movie work. But after Sound Designer Thomas Jackson implemented his sound effects, Foley and ADR tracks, the movie didn’t need that much. What the film does require is two inserts, so that we can utilize all the shots of our demon, which should hopefully thrill all the monster/horror fans out there.
One of the inserts will play an important role in the Trailer for Stash, which Editor Jason Paluck has already cut. Sound Designer Thomas Jackson will add his sound work to the trailer, to go along with Music Composer Geoff Tyson comes up with. Both those guys will play a crucial role in the Trailer as they can really elevate the brooding, high-tension atmosphere I’m going for.
Make-Up Artist Sarah Bedrick will doing the make-up, hair and blood splatter needed to match the continuity of what was already shot. I’m excited that we are going to get the chance to work together, before shooting the completion of Abandoned later in July.
All in all, it’s very exciting that everything is coming together for Stash and very soon people will get a glimpse of our movie.”
This was a major accomplishment towards the completion of the movie STASH.
The fact that actress Almog Pail is in every scene in STASH means that the production finally has the voice of the “heart and soul of the movie.” Director Terry R. Wickham says, “It was in no way easy trying to go back and recreate the movie after the fact. But the truth is we sort of got a second and now third chance to get it right. It’s something that probably nobody wants to have to do, but we didn’t have a choice and it was an opportunity for us to better the movie.”
Sound Designer Thomas Jackson was there again plugging away on the audio, always striving to get the best sound possible. This was a challenge because the main character “Faith Daniels” is mumbling to her video camera at times, while screaming loudly in others. Wickham says, “Thomas is a true collaborator who didn’t just accept the first attempt at something. He kept striving to make sure the tone of Almog’s voice was right and that the technical recording was the best it could be.”
The filmmaker adds, “The three of us honestly had a great time working together. The situation forced me to go back and watch the movie over and over, including the morning of the last session. It was during these multiple sessions that I realized that I needed to add dialogue in situations where Faith hadn’t originally spoke, but the story needed to be communicated with a couple more lines. Especially the scenes involving the smart-phone applicated Geostashes. There is that balance every visual storyteller is striving for where you counterweight action with words.”
