Who Is Matt?

Matt is the grader. I’m seeing him tomorrow at 4pm at the labs to look at the one-light print of Last Train. Yes, there is a print. Next we grade it, which means I say what sort of filter colours, contrast and tonal range I want on the final print. Then it’s printed again on 35mm and then it goes to the nice people at movie theatres who show it.

It is as simple as that. Perhaps. Oh, you know this saga won’t end quite here but I reckon two more weeks, given that the mortgage money hasn’t appeared in my bank account just yet. Two more weeks and then I’ll have an artistic product that people can watch. A film, no less.
