Mother Died: Special Edition

The burnt husk of house rests in the wake of an apocalypse. The air is still, the ground covered in ash. Nothing lives, nothing moves…

But something is scratching beneath the rubble, moaning, clawing at a memory, a memory of a mother… A mother who died. Do you remember?

Eh hem… anyways…

Mother Died: Special Edition

As the season of goodwill and all things festive approaches, we wanted to offer our loyal followers this early gift to get you in the mood for the holidays.

So tear off the blood soaked wrapping paper and gorge yourselves on this very special edition of Mother Died; the fourth episode from Bloody Cuts.

Team BC have been working very hard to bring you a brand new presentation of Mother Died, directed by Neill Gorton and produced by Ben Franklin and Anthony Melton.

Mother Died: Special Edition

This new cut of the film includes a fresh grade by the super talented Patrick Inhofer (Colorist Flight School), a beautiful new score from Patrick Jonsson and a very special treat from VFX wonder boy – Ryan Thompson.

Earlier in May 2014, Colorist Flight school released a ‘Mother Died Grade Along’, which allowed subscribers to virtually sit down with Patrick Inhofer and be schooled in the dark art of colour correction, taking the film from it’s flat raw state to a fully graded final product.

Mother Died: Special Edition

Check out the Tao of Color / Colorist Flight School website for more information, it’s a unique resource for not just folks wanting to become a colourist, but all breeds of film makers interested in making their films look amazing.
