85' / Super 16 / B&W, Colour / 2017
Sea of Tranquility is a completely independent film with no external funding from any funding bodies. It was funded by the filmmakers themselves and crowdfunding. Shooting stated in 2012, it was in post production for almost 5 years because of money restrictions and personal struggles. If you would like to show any final support, you can find a donate link at the bottom of this page. Sea of Tranquility will be expected to be making the festival circuit in 2017.
Sea of Tranquility has adopted traditional film techniques to achieve a real cinematic aesthetic. It was shot on Super 16 and was edited using a Steenbeck and will be blown up to 35mm; the process is film to film, no digital intermediate. (Unfortunately we ran out of money, so the end product will now be screened at festivals on DCP). Additional parts of the film were also processed, printed and manipulated by hand at Artist Film Workshop (AFW) based in Melbourne. AFW is the only artist run studio/lab in Australia that has all the facilities to film, process, print, manipulate, edit and project 16mm films. If you would like to know more about processing your own film please contact us or AFW.
We would like to give special thanks to Richard Tuohy and Dianna Barrie from Nanolab who were fantastic mentors and inspiration throughout the making of the film.
