SilverSun Pictures handled complete post production services—everything that happens after the camera stops rolling until Rip Tide hit the screen. While the short turnaround time presented its challenges, SilverSun was ready. The team arrived on set from the first day of shooting in Kiama, with an editor and assistant, editing while footage was being filmed.
To save time and money, the A team at SilverSun also set up an editing and grading village in Sydney, where The Steve Jaggi Company is based, so the crew there could see what was happening in real time in Canberra with post production. They then managed editing, grading, data and colour management from its purpose-built facilities in Watson. Expert sound design and dialogue editing were major requirements given a lot of footage was filmed out on the water and so shot mute.
Meticulous project management was the order of the day given that shooting started in November 2016 and the film had to be delivered in May 2017, making Rip Tide the shortest turnaround of any film SilverSun has worked on to date.
SilverSun relied on its detailed methodology, developed and refined over many years, to ensure nothing fell through the cracks. They also hand-selected, and managed, additional experts to drive the project forward smoothly.
From the day of its release, Rip Tide began making it big in Australia and internationally with a mega 100+ screen release. It received top reviews during its Canberra premiere, watched by 300 guests at the National Film and Sound Archive. Steve Jaggi said SilverSun’s work is on par with the standards of the best post production houses in Sydney and Melbourne. This is the seventh feature film SilverSun Pictures has worked on, and the largest yet.
