Joe Zohar, the head of Moving Box’s Videography Department, is finally putting the finishing touches on his thesis film entitled “Chalk Outlines.”. It has been a labor of love for Joe over the past several years. Check out what the man himself has to say about the film below:
So if you have talked with me at all about what I want to do in life in the past four years, I am sure I told you about my steady diet of Moving Box and the movie I have been working on called Chalk Outlines. In describing Chalk Outlines, I’ve used the phrase “It’s almost finished” too many times to count. I can now say for certain that it is actually almost finished. I am so pleased with how everything is looking. I just recently got the film color corrected, or “mastered”, and have a final edit I am currently test screening in-house at Moving Box. I have been getting some really helpful critiques and reviews about the film. Their enthusiasm has really helped fuel my excitement about finishing the film.
Once this edit is picture locked I will be sending it to my sound designer and music composer to have the auditory part of the film match it’s visual counterpart. Ryan Mauk at Digital One in Portland, Oregon will be helming the sound board. You may remember him from such Moving Box films as “Repentance” and “Olympus Burger”. Ryan is the man and will give the film’s sound the treatment it deserves!
Providing the musical accompaniment is Erik Spangler (DJ Dubble8) from Baltimore who you may remember from the Moving Box documentaries “Charm City Remix” and “Mandala of the Four Directions.” There is nobody better suited to create the ominous feeling and tension for the world in Chalk Outlines than Erik. I could not be happier with this all-star team and know that Chalk is going to be a heavy hitter on film festival circuit. I have included some stills of the film to whet your appetite. I and hope the style and look intrigue you as I am planning on releasing some more stills soon as well as a trailer in the near future so stay tuned. Much love, Viva La Box!
