As part of our ongoing production relationship with NBCUniversal, we were tasked with creating a long-form documentary about the making of classic 1990 comedy horror film Tremors. The content was commissioned to coincide with the release of the latest film in the franchise, Tremors 7.
We extensively researched the franchise, the stories behind the scenes, and the original team involved in the film. After securing locations and contributors, including Kevin Bacon, in the US, UK and Ireland, we began production with multiple crews all managed by an in-house producer.
The team shot for several weeks in various studios and locations such as Lone Pine and LA, with a wide variety of contributors, filming on state-of-the-art Blackmagic cameras and Sony FX9s.
All the post-production was primarily completed in the Nemorin studio, in Soho Square, led by our senior editor. We were in post-production when the Covid-19 pandemic struck, which meant the edit, grade and sound mix were finalised remotely. After an extensive paper edit to craft the narrative, hours of footage were refined into a 30-minute documentary with complementary motion graphics.
After a week-long colour grade and sound mix, the final film was delivered for distribution via DVD and online.
The opening sequence lent itself well to a trailer, so the first 90 seconds were used as a teaser for the documentary and released on the YouTube channel before the main film.
