Salmon has an impressive background in video production as well as storyboarding, graphic design, and immense experience with 2D and 3D graphics — all of this certainly ensures a fantastic product in The Price, especially given that it’s an absolute passion of Salmon’s to bring Gaiman’s Poe-esque story to life. And by the way, did we mention that Gaiman himself is narrating the film? An incredible coup on Salmon’s part, though Gaiman didn’t really need much coaxing — he’s pretty much giving the project 150% support, as well he should. Kudos, Mr. G.
We encourage you to stay updated on the film’s production via the project’s production blog as their latest stellar update on August 22 showcased the animation process being utilized to achieve the film’s magical look (see the photo above of the film’s star in his raw CG state). For those interested in donating to the project, Salmon and his team would be QUITE appreciative as fundraising efforts are an ongoing part of any indie film venture — please visit their donation page and be as generous as you can. You’ve no doubt heard us preaching time and again that supporting indie productions is probably one of the most fulfilling experiences a film-lover can have, especially when the project hits the screen and amazes audiences. Chris Salmon’s wonderful venture is truly support-worthy.
We’ll pass along any updates should a special screening of The Price occur right here in Lowell — cross your fingers with us, friends!
