Athas Is A Boldly Abstract Statement On Art and Purpose [REVIEW]

We got an amazing review for Athas on Horror Buzz! Check it out!

My first introduction to the work of surrealist auteur Charles Davis was his 2016 feature, Eddie Glum, and while his most recent work, Athas, seems to promise a more digestible narrative than that film, which centered around a race of malevolent aliens feeding on humans in the wake of a giant woman....

Home sick with a head cold today but still managed to hit a milestone by finishing what I call the “Primary Audio and SFX” portion of the movie. This means I’ve gotten everything I could get out of the audio we recorded on site including backgrounds, environment manipulation and dialogue - and also (most) recreated sound effects are in place. Next step is ADR for dialogue that wasn’t salvageable and music/weird synthesizer noises work (and then after that color correction and degraining.... and then probably another watch through and further cut down of the splicing). Anyway, sick days can still be productive apparently! #CelebratingWithKennyOmegaFingers

Editing of Circle has begun! We still have a few green screen shots to get with a couple actors and some outdoor environment shots to do, but we’ve got enough footage to start full on piecing the movie together.

I normally break down editing into multiple steps and the first step is what I call “splicing” - which is basically just picking all the shots I want to use and then arranging them in the order and timing they’ll be in. Laying it all out in other words.

The initial splicing of the movie tends to be longer than the final version and I’ll slowly widdle things down when it’s all spliced together to get a somewhat finalized flow of the film - which is the next step after splicing (though I constantly adjust how things are spliced together in every step until the end). So far we’ve got 25 min spliced together with a lot of the movie left to go- but as I said, way to early to tell if that is actually a real 25 min so far or just a lot of stuff that will come out.
