Hello Friends!
Just a quick update because we know you are all very keen to hear what Archangel Pictures has in store for you in 2012, and so are we!
One Night Only, the short film directed by Pete Gurbiel, is in the final stages of post-production and scheduled for release in March. 
Strange Clouds, the short film directed by Tim Sharp, is also nearing completion.  The final sound mix is scheduled for next week and the visual effects are looking great.  Strange Clouds is scheduled for release later this month, so keep a look out for the trailer, online very soon.
In other news, producer, Michael Facey and writer/director, Chris Richards-Scully, have been busily working on a script for the feature film version of their short film Kanowna, titled ‘Unforgivable’. 
Archangel Pictures is happy to announce that the ‘Unforgivable’ team have been invited to participate in the Feature Navigator Development Program, which is a joint initiative conducted by the local film funding agency Screenwest and the Australian Writer’s Guild (AWG).
“The script is only in its infancy and I’m very excited to be attending the Feature Navigator program.  I’m sure I’ll learn how much work still needs to be done”, said Chris.
Phase One of the program will be conducted by screenwriter, Andrew Bovell (Lantana, Edge of Darkness) and will run for three days in February.
So 2012 is starting with a bang.  To stay up to date with all the Archangel Pictures news, join our Facebook page or visit the website.
