Greetings everyone. It’s been a while since we’ve had an update about the film, so here’s the latest state-of-the-flick: This evening our editor finished a second assembly on the film. This is something like a rough cut, but a bit broader than that. However, with this assembly, the pieces have fallen far enough in to place that we should be able to get started on getting the film scored and start thinking about sound editing. After the next edit, I’m hopeful that we will also be able to start in on the visual effects, as I know that will be something of a lengthy process (we have to add digital aliens, robots and explosions in order to keep up with our Hollywood bigger brothers).

I guess that’s all the news for now. Check back soon to catch up with any additional progress!

Just wanted to present a small update. After a small hiatus, our editor, Conor Gordon, has the footage again. Work has begun on getting a rough cut together so that we can get our sound designer and composer busy at work.

It was a fun filming and I know the final product will turn out excellent!

Hello and welcome to my first blog post ever.  I know, exciting isn’t it?  Anyways the production has officially wrapped for Archive Girl. Now we begin the long and pain staking process that is post-production.  I am sure Ryan can comment more on post production latter.  For now let’s see some pictures from the set of Archive Girl!

Here is a picture from the first day of shooting.

This is the camera we shot the film with.  The device it is attached to is our crane made by our DP Scott Winn (featured right).

Preparing for another take.  The guy with the long hair and bandanna is me (Greg).

Another picture of Glenn and Jessamy down in the archives.

That is all for now.  If you are all good little boys and girls and continue to check out our blog, I will post more pictures and maybe even regale you with stories from the set.  Until then enjoy the pictures.

It started in London, some time in the autumn of 2008. We were three American film students on a study abroad program, sitting in O’Neill’s, a very fine pub in Muswell Hill. I had a number of short film ideas circling around in my head, and I brought them to the table one day, both metaphorically and literally. They were well-receieved, and we decided to join forces. Thus, a production company was born. Now, nearly two years later, we are thick in the middle of our first short film, “Archive Girl,” a post-dystopian love story filled with quirk and charm, inspired in equal parts by The Office and 1984. More on that as it develops, hopefully with some actual accounts from the production team.

So, dear reader(s), welcome to Longcoat Films! We are thrilled to be taking our first steps into the world of filmmaking. We are glad you took the time to look us up. We hope you continue to check in from time to time.
