Closer Productions wrapped production in August on its feature film 52 Tuesdays. The film had been shooting every Tuesday since August 23rd last year, each week capturing the lives of a fictional family and their friends.
The unique production, a film shot and told over the course of fifty-two Tuesdays, had been a mammoth undertaking for the small producing team of Sophie Hyde, Bryan Mason, Matthew Cormack and Rebecca Summerton, relying on heartfelt commitment from a cast of non-professional actors and a small but passionate pool of Adelaide production crew, one of which became pregnant and gave birth all during the time of production. The production also heavily relied on the kindness of strangers and generous sponsors, with no less that 30 individuals volunteering their efforts to catering alone and dozens allowing access to their businesses or residences for locations scattered across the metropolitan area.
However, it's not over yet! After a short break to catch our breaths with a well-needed rest we're back into it, last week heading back into the edit suite edit suite at the Cremorne Street studio. It's a big task but we look forward to shaping this beast. We'll keep you updated on the progress of the edit as we get into it.
