This is my first "Post" about my post-production Slutcracker Dreams process. As I write these stories I will also be posting pieces of video and snapshots - interesting tidbits to tantalize the taste buds. So, follow this blog http://slutcrackerdreams.blogspot.com/, our twitter feed http://twitter.com/Alphagirlfilms or "like" AlphaGirlFilms on Facebook and you'll get every notice. We will also eventually have www.alphagirlfilms.com up and operational. Please pass it on to anyone who you think may be interested.
"Slutcracker Dreams" - A Documentary on "The Slutcracker", A Burlesque retelling of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Ballet created for international audiences by the fabulous Vanessa White aka SugarDish. If you haven't seen it yet....It will be playing in Somerville, MA at the Somerville theatre and you can keep up with Slutcracker information on Facebook or at www.theslutcracker.com
So, lets get started! First I want to send some thanks out:
Vanessa White! for creating a spectacular show and bringing together a community of richly talented individuals to realize your vision and giving me the opportunity to film you for Ohhhh so many days:)
Tarah Alton for the fabulous Alpha Girl Illustrations she is creating for me!!!
Also I want to thank everyone who is in the film and took the time to be interviewed. I am looking forward to a full review of the footage and the opportunity to see all your performances once again.
As some of you know....I have amassed quite a bit of footage in the last 2 years and technology is a fickle mistress. There always seems to be one more terabyte of storage needed or now, the decision to upgrade to Final Cut X. What to do? Editors I have spoken to have all seemed to be going back to the Avid. Daemeon has been working on a way that I could potentially run both FC 7 and X off my one computer.
The quandary of course is that anything I have done in 7 is not transferable to X. Well, that will be figured out in the next couple days and then we will be off and watching!
Thank you for reading and I look forward to this epic journey of Slutcracker Dreams!
Julia Van Daam - Director and Visionary
