“The Devil’s Five” Editor Kris Ramsey agrees to Cut Double Vision

Filmmaker Terry R. Wickham is way beyond happy that “The Devil’s Five” Editor Kris Ramsey has agreed to Edit his upcoming love story-suspense thriller Double Vision.

Wickham says, ” Kris did such a phenomenal job of cutting “The Devil’s Five”, which included not only traditional editing, but he personally did all the special visual effects in the Wraparound segment, color correcting and animated artistic Opening Credits. Kris also was responsible for taking all five separate segments (“The Devil’s Five”, “Abandoned”, “Don’t Say These Words”, “Choke” and “Stash”) threading them together as one complete feature film and generated all End Credits as well.

There is a definite cohesiveness he brought to the movie that my Devil’s Five partners and I will be forever grateful for.

Kris is just so highly skilled in every aspect of editing that he brings a wealth of technique and expert talent that heightens the films in every way.

What I really admire about Kris’s approach is not only does he do his best to fulfill my vision, but is not afraid to challenge things or look at scenes/moments at a slightly different angle to make it even better.

Look at how he edited the ambulance arriving scene in “The Devil’s Five.”  The original footage run around 5 to 6 minutes.  He creatively cut it down to probably around 1 minute using an amazing-stylish time shaving way.  Or the flashing red/blue light effects he added from two police cars in the first scene.  Also his addition of the shot of the full moon shot transitioning  to the police station.  How about the cool insert flashbacks glimpses to the first scene in the hallway when Detective Armitage (Kevin Cusick) is speaking to Detective Hannigan (Sarah Haruko) about what happened.  I honestly loved how he heightened those moments and everyone one of those ideas/additions were all Kris.

Some people wouldn’t have the wherewithal, courage or maybe even talent and foresight to do that, but Kris definitely wants the best for the film and that’s what really matters.

I’m really super thrilled that my first choices for my behind-the-scenes collaborators are the people I wanted for this film. Kris joins already announced Cinematographer Adrian Popescu, Poster Artist David Helpling and Music Composer Houssem Turki as four of the five I targeted for my most important production staff.

There’s a certain synergy of working with the same production personnel who are great at what they do  I recognize that as being vital to the success of John Carpenter’s early career.  I saw the same thing with late George A. Romero, when he worked with his Pittsburgh crew.

I’m hoping that these talented folks (and a few others  such as Bryan Lopes, Jason Paluck, Giorgio Savona to name a few) will be part of a select roster of people who I will continue to work with again and again going forward.”
Expect to see an announcement for Wickham’s choice for who will be the Sound Designer real soon .  The Sound Designer he wanted for Double Vision just accepted the role Saturday January 13th.  Double Vision‘s outlook is looking better and better each day.

Documentary Team Assembled to capture Devil’s Five Red Carpet World Premiere

Filmmaker Terry R. Wickham has hired Nicholas Girimonte of NPG Films to assemble a crew to document Devil’s Five upcoming Red Carpet World Premiere.

Wickham says, “It’s going to be such a momentous, unforgettable night for all those involved, I want it captured by someone I could trust to get it right.  I was very impressed by Nick’s enthusiasm and work ethic on a trailer I directed back in January and he worked on Gruesome Threesome as well.  So it was natural to call on him.

Nick has handpicked his team and I told him to not only shot HD video footage, but take still photos, conduct interviews cast & crew, talk to audience members before and after Devil’s Five World Premiere and the Q&A Session with filmmakers that follows the movie’s showing.  Plus they can even record the celebratory fun of the After Party at Runyons.
