We have PICTURE LOCK! Making this film has been like learning the Chinese Pool: The result is rewarding but there’s lots of bumps and bruises along the way. But good things come to those who work hard and we’re so very excited to finally have picture lock!

Big thanks to our rockstar of the post production, Chris Parisagain! We hit some major technical difficulties and Chris stepped up to help us out. We definitely wouldn’t be here without his passion and hard work! If you’re looking for an awesome and reliable editor, Chris is your guy. Trustworthy editors are hard to come by and we’re so grateful for his dedication!

More exciting news coming soon! ‪#‎circusislove‬
