The Mule, starring Hugo Weaving and Angus Sampson, will have its international premiere at the South By Southwest Film Festival in Austin, Texas, on Sunday March 9.
I spent the second half of 2013 working closely with editor Andy Canny on this film. It was one of those great assisting jobs where I did plenty of cutting - even working on the final cut with Andy and the directors.
We cut the film on two Final Cut Pro suites based out of DDP Melbourne, who handled the data management, transcoding, colour grade and mastering.
The film is set in 1983 and follows a naive man with lethal narcotics hidden in his stomach who is detained by Australian Federal Police.
The Mule is slated for an Australian theatrical release later in 2014.
