We’ve just finished the first editing round of Iron Sky, and have now semi-locked the script, and are waiting for music, sounds and CGI to flow into it’s rightful place. So what better time to grab a cam and go visit Energia in Tampere, the fearless CGI facility working on to create Iron Sky as cool looking as a film about Nazis from the Dark Side of the Moon can ever be!

I visited the Blind Spot Pictures office for a while, after being locked up in the edit booth for so many weeks, because Tuesday was a technical day for the edit – they converted the file, went to Post Control to test it out and prepare everything for tomorrow’s screening. We had a nice chat with Pekka and the Boys about how things in the extended world of Iron Sky progressed – discussing, among other things, the first part of the comic we’re about to release quite soon.
As we’re starting the last week of the editing for Iron Sky before quite an extensive break, I wanted to have a quick chat with Suresh Ayyar, the editor of Iron Sky, about how he feels the process has been going so far. Next up, we’ll be screening the film on Wednesday to several key financiers of Iron Sky, like Finnish Film Foundation and YLE, and based on the feedback, we have two more days to fix what there is to fix – and then, it’s time us to raise the hands and lay low for few months.
The editing of Iron Sky continues in September, when we have more CGI in place, and we can finalize what we started. It’s also good to have a clear break in watching the edit; you get quite blind to it after a while, and a fresh look after few months is definitely going to point out a bunch of apparent errors we still are able to fix.
