Spring 2011 Updates

Having Faith

This anthropologically-informed social comment on the tug of war between secular and faith-based rehab in America’s prisons is now in picture lock. We were lucky enough last week to house a brilliant Nucoda Film Master, one of a handful of high end systems that color corrects footage and much more to give films their polished look. We will be using these systems to color grade Faith in the Big House.

Editing “ExPass”

Our crew of 3 editors is plugging away in the A suite, cutting ExPass and working towards an editing script with the recent collaboration of Eleanor Beaton, who spent a decade working with George Lucas’ Skywalker Sound.

SITV: Enterprise and the Environment

Interlock will soon be shooting a pilot episode of “Sustainable Industrial TV” (SITV). The pilot will be shot at Ray Anderson’s Interface Flor, a recycled carpet producer headquartered in Lagrange, Georgia. The “how-to” format show will feature a pair of comedic hosts and a “green” scoreboard to rate Interface against other companies.

The Urban Waterway

Charles River Recreation (CCR) offers affordable outdoor activities on the historic Charles River for busy city and metro dwellers. Interlock’s video will capture the natural beauty of the Charles and feature the efforts of CRR to make its resources available to persons with disabilities and to inner city youth.

Other developments... We are in the start up phase of “Tell Tale Signs,” a project from Board member Neil Smith. The 30-minute online weekly TV program will focus on corporate responsibility and sustainability. Smith and co-host Elsie Maio will provide candid, provocative commentary on domestic and global business, as they analyze what companies say and actually do for the environment and the communities in which they operate.

Code Switching and Race: Towards a fresh examination of the impact of busing for school integration

In the dreary rays of dawn, Interlock’s camera-laden drone hovers above buses full of METCO students. They travel the same highways from Boston to affluent suburbs as over thirty thousand students have done since the METCO program began more than fifty years ago.
Code-Switching follows five African-American students, spanning two generations, who signed up for voluntary busing to attend better-resourced suburban schools.  METCO, the Metropolitan Council for Educational Opportunity, has been a wonderful experiment that has helped more inner city youth attend college while diversifying suburban schools. For some students however, shuttling between Boston’s ethnic neighborhoods and predominantly white suburban schools has not been seamless, especially for the girls.  Typically, girls do not experience the same athlete-hero status as many of their male peers. They may face the burdens of both ostracization back home and feelings of isolation in their adopted schools. This has led to anxiety…

Meet Interlock’s Audio Post Production Team – Berklee Buddies Bedazzle

Behind the scenes of Margaret Fuller: The Evolution of a Utopianist there is a talented, ongoing group of musicians and sound designers we like to call the Berklee Buddies. With a common thread of training at the Berklee College of Music, they share a deep sense of professionalism and a keen understanding of the broader context of the work.  In addition to their international backgrounds, each brought various aspects of musical and technical expertise.

Grounded by their musicianship, intellectual depth and stellar work ethic, they melded into a cohesive music-making machine.  They hit the ground running and never stopped, often working into the night to get everything just right. Because of their enthusiasm, generosity and ties to the Berklee performance community, it was not unusual for a violin, sax, or vocalist to pop by and add their instrumentation.  

Under the stewardship of our Berklee Buddies, the post production audio process took on a life of its own.

Climate change is a fact. Have we made as much progress as we thought? Will the Paris Accords hold? Is climate change at the root of the Syrian conflict and the refugee crisis?  Is Secretary of State (and former ExxonMobil CEO) Rex Tillerson actually the moderating influence on Trump Administration climate change deniers like EPA head Scott Pruitt? Is radical activism the answer or is it simply too late? In this incisive interview, author and journalist Wen Stephenson investigates new twists in the Trump era on climate change and the repercussions for democracy…
