New teaser trailer and test watchers

After years of production, our debut feature documentary – In Search of the Dead – is almost ready. Yes, you read that correctly… it will soon be available to watch!

Despite (or perhaps because of!) having watched the film what seems like at least a million times, Erik and I want to check that we haven’t made any silly mistakes. As such, we are looking for keen-eyed viewers to spot any glitches, typos or volume irregularities which we might have missed.

Check out our latest teaser trailer and see what we’re talking about…

If you are interested in being a test watcher (and getting early access to ISOTD!), you can apply here. The form will be available to fill in until Monday night. After that we will be contacting those who we have selected with more details.

As always, we want to say thank you for your continued support and patience. We truly cannot wait to share “In Search of the Dead” with you!

Sound, sound, sound!

Over the past couple of weeks we have seen leaps and bounds worth of progress with In Search of the Dead, with “sound” and “audio” being the two most commonly used words in our office. Not only has our hugely talented composer finished all her (heavenly!) compositions for our soundtrack, but we have also hired an audio engineer to smooth the documentary’s sound and have recorded the final takes of all the voiceover in studio. Phew!

I hardly dare to say it, but I believe we are now in the Final Tweaks stage of post-production. I cross my fingers and hope that it won’t be too much longer until we will be looking for test watchers to help us identify any last errors or issues with the production. So, keep an eye out if that sounds interesting to you!

To end this short update post I must once again thank you all for your constant support and patience. There is a not a video on our YouTube channel that does not have a comment asking after In Search of the Dead. We know that you have not forgotten our crazy dream to produce this documentary, and are just as excited to see it finished as we are. Each comment warms our hearts and reminds us of how fortunate we are to have such an enthusiastic and understanding audience. So, thank you.
