This is the first official release of our film. There will be, however, a DVD release sometime in the future.
|Finaly it has come true: After more than five years work on the film is now completed. |
We are all very happy with the final outcome and hope that we will soon be able to present Faust publicly. At this time we have begun to enter into film festivals worldwide and there are plans for a premiere in Lower Austria, were most of the filming for Faust took place.
Also in the coming weeks and months there will be some changes to the website. We are currently working on a new version of the Teaser-Trailer, which will be including more of the animation and shall be representative of the films final design.
|The long awaited completion of the film is now almost at hand, while we are still working on the final grindings.|
We have just completed the recording sessions for the only spoken part of the film, the "Prologue in Heaven" sequence which is a recurring theme in the whole film. We are happy to say, that for this we were able to win the singers of two exceptional Austrian bands: Stefan Weber of Dradiwaberl as Mephistopheles and Georgij Makazaria of Russkaja as the Lord.
The resulting atypical interpretation of Goethes words is farther sustained in its dark ambiguity through the handwritten plates and expressive charcoal drawings by Silvia Ungersböck.
|The wait will be over soon. After more than four years of work on Faust we are nearing completion. We are very keen on presenting to you the final outcome. Were and when this will be, we do not know by now. However, we will certainly send the film to a variety of film festivals first, then there will be an Austrian premiere.|
|For the recording of the film score we were granted 18.000 Euros of funding by the State of Lower Austria and 1.700 Euros by the city of St. Pölten. Consequently the completion of the film for early 2008, exactly 200 years after Goethe´s "Faust - The Tragedy Part One" was first published in 1808, is now secured. At this time we are still working hard on the final touches of the film, the color correction, and the animations. However, we are confident, that we will soon bring our work on the film to a close and be able to present the outcome to you all.|
In the press section you will find two articles referring to the state funding of the film, one is a press release by the State of Lower Austria and the other is an article in the Austrian daily paper Kurier.
| Some time has passed, however, now we present to you the promised updates:|
Several photos and personal data of actors and crew members were added to the credits section of the page. Also the article about the film by Thomas Nash is now available in the press section. And for information about the ongoing work on Faust, we recommend you visit the blogs written by our composer Alexander Zlamal and our director of animation Benjamin Swiczinsky, you will find links to both blogs in the making of section.
At this point a heartfelt thank you for the many requests we received regarding the date of completion resp. the release date of the film. Unfortunately as to that we cannot give you any specific information yet, since we are still thoroughly in the process of completing the work on Faust. However, it is safe to state, that an official release date will not be possible before the year 2008. For this reason we have overworked the teaser to the film and provided it with the correct year of release. On this occasion we also added an additional streaming version of the teaser with higher resolution and two download versions with enhanced quality to the trailer section.
A true trailer to the film including more extensive animation sequences and more detailed information regarding the storyline will most definitively be available to you in the fall of this year. Until then there will be plenty of stuff happening, we will keep you up-to-date!
