In sunny Wellington, work has begun on putting EveryLittleThing together. Experienced film editor Paul Sutorius (War Stories, Ruby and Rata, Filthy Rich, 800 Words, White Lies) is locked away in an Avid suite at Park Road Post (pictured), selecting the best takes from the shoot. He says: “We’re trucking through. It’ll look really good, ultimately.” Mmmm!
Director John Harris, sitting anxiously at the back of the edit suite, is encouraged by the progress they’re making. “But the proof is in the pudding,” he says. “Are there enough ‘events’ in the story to sustain the audience’s interest for half an hour? We may have to get ruthless and take out some scenes.”
But one thing’s certain – the beetles, weta, morepork, thrush and ants will get plenty of time on screen. “They’re fascinating when you see them up close,” says John.
