And so… The Halloween Kid post-production is finished. We screened the film for the cast and crew last night at a plush central London screening room, and it looked great on the big screen. The adventure is far from over though, as we start approaching film festivals and submitting the film around the world!
Thanks again to everybody who invested, spread the word, took an interest or worked on the film this year. May your Christmas be merry, and 2012 bring you success and spookiness.
I’m incredibly proud and happy to announce that legendary actor Sir Derek Jacobi has joined the Halloween Kid team! Sir Derek recorded the narration for the film today, and he was such a joy to work with. As a kid, I’d seen him in a Channel 4 miniseries, Mister Pye, which had absolutely terrified me – an idea which ties in nicely with the themes of the film.
I truly cannot wait for you all to hear it!
To celebrate the nearing end of post-production, here are a couple of new stills from the film!
Dave Legeno (who played werewolf Fenrir Greyback in the last 3 Harry Potter films, and will soon be seen in Snow White) played the baseball coach who terrorizes little Henry. In real life, Dave and Leo got on like houses on fire…
