The Seafarer hits the Festival circuit

I did not expect to get into the land of film festivals when I started reading Burton Raffel’s translation of The Seafarer in a ratty used copy in my Peabody dorm back in whenever that was. 2004? But here we are. Michael Feldman, who directed the film, and I got to work on submitting our […]

For […]

Very busy couple of weeks

June 5, the day before my birthday, Mike Feldman and I sat down with Zach Herchen to go over his latest sound design work for Seafarer. It’s fantastic. The world of the film was starting to emerge in the last round, but this time he really got into the details, and started to bring mixing […]
