The new trailer is finally finished after two months of non-stop logging and editing here in New York, culminating with a fantastic session at Postworks where colorist Sean Smith worked his magic for five hours alongside Daphne Schmon (Director) and Alex Lage (Executive Producer). Peter Robertson (Director of Photography) also sent detailed notes from the UK. Our biggest challenge going in was to match the Canon 5D footage with the Panasonic Varicam 2700 in both contrast and color. We also tried to find an antique look for the archival footage, that would set it apart from present day. Sean did a fantastic job and we couldn’t be happier with the result. Take a look at this snap shot from inside the Postworks studio:

We also have to thank Gunther Romer who spent countless hours helping us to translate the interviews in Papiamento and Dutch. Gunther is a native of Curacao who now lives in New York. His help extended far beyond mere translation, as he also offered wonderful insight into the Dutch Antillean culture and people. We are very lucky to have met him. Here is a photo of Daphne and Gunther at work:
