After two years of consuming and devouring my every waking hour, this little indie movie is finally done. It was a monster undertaking. I can’t THANK enough the amazing post team of VFX/editorial/sound for working tirelessly around the clock — crazy long days, 7 days a week, for many many many weeks without a day off — towards making this a unique and beautiful film. Everyone poured their heart and soul into it, and I can’t wait to share this 21st December! In the meantime, I’m gonna go take a really long nap now.
Although Wan is in charge as the director of this upcoming film, it is always worth remembering that filmmaking – especially in the blockbuster scale is a collaborative effort, and it takes thousands of different people throughout pre-production, principal photography and post-production to bring this story to life in the best way possible. Let’s hope they crafted a truly unique film in the comic book genre that will make hardcore DC fans and the general public quite enthralled this holiday season!
