It ain't over til its over

Something clicked last night after finishing work.
We had a drink with the sound design guys Seb and Fabien and then met up with Bruno the composer.
And I finally had the feeling that we are finished all the directing that can ever be done.

We have to check the print, maybe do some colour grading in the lab in a few weeks.
But thats it really.
On Monday I will be working on the French poster with Ross .
Theres the comic to finish off.

But really, the film is done.
After so many years its all over.
I keep sleeping. On the plane, in Pauls car on the way back down
and all day in the house.
Tonight we are going to Ross' new house warming and Jonas' going away party.
(Jonas made the compositing of the credits BTW- another superstar intern!)

I could easily just sleep but its worth going out to celebrate!

Thanks to everyone who followed this journey...I'll keep you all posted of release news and so on
and the comic stuff etcetera as the films journey is in a way just beginning now that the production has wrapped.
Well, I'm saving myself from saying its "in the can" until its actually on film and in a can!!!!


  1. Congratulations Tom, you and all the boys and girls at the saloon have done it. I can't wait to see the movie. Hope your all keeping well:0)

  2. AMAZING!!!!! :D I hope the film is SUPER ULTRA MEGA ROCKIN' AWESOME TO THE MAX!!! Because that would be good... :) By the way, is the film going to come out in the U.S.? If so, when should we expect to see it? I'm excited... :) (giggle giggle, but not in a fruity way)

  7. Fantastic! Congratulations to everyone involved. Read on Catsuka that the film might be out around the beginning of February. Can't wait to see it on the big screen !!!!!!!!!

  8. Congratulations, men! I recently heard an interview of musician artists. They said that they work just to have this particular pleasure, this feeling that the work is done. I thought that in animation, this feeling (that I fully undertand) is long time delayed. It's not fair. So enjoy and celebrate.
