This past Friday, April 17th, the first film out of three that I had the pleasure of editing this year premiered. Doppelgänger was a success and played well for our audience. I received some compliments from viewers commenting on how eerie the film was. I was worried as to how the short would be received as I had been with it for so long and wasn't sure if the scares in the film were landing. Sure enough though, there was an audible gasp throughout the theater during the reveal of our title character.
With the film completed, I am able to take a step back and reflect on the timeline of creating this short. Our director did an excellent job communicating with each department, inviting their perspectives and collaborating in a way that allowed for creative freedom on both ends. Seeing the final piece colored, with a sound mix, and score in a full theater was surreal, and I'm so very proud of our cast, crew, and director for bringing this psychological thriller to life.
