Earlier this week, Broken Lizard announced that its highly anticipated comedy Super Troopers 2 has finished its post-production process. The production company’s crew revealed they completed the sound mix and color correction which are the final steps to bringing the film to life.
As previously reported, film studio Broken Lizard sought to raise $2 million for the sequel of the 2001 comedy Super Troopers during its Indiegogo campaign in 2015 and has so far secured more than $4.6 million. Although the plot is still unknown, according to IMDb. The movie will star Jay Chandrasekhar (starring and directing), Paul Soter, Steve Lemme, Erik Stolhanske, and Heffernan. Other cast members include Emmanuelle Chriqui, Rob Lowe, Hayes MacArthur, Tyler Labine and Will Sasso.
In the update, Broken Lizard also revealed:
“We’ve posted about how we’ve been doing test screenings already and some folks were confused how we do that if the film was not technically “done.” The reality is that those screenings are done with an unfinished product: temp sound & music stuffed in and a low res picture. It’s important to do those screenings before everything is locked in, so we can see what works and what doesn’t, what jokes play and what jokes suck and then make adjustments accordingly. But at some point you have to stop that process and lock everything in. The sound mix and the color correction mark the end of that process. Both are exciting, not just because they are the final steps, but because they vastly improve the film.
“By way of explanation, the sound mix is the final sound step. This is the time when you assemble all the sound elements people have been working on for weeks: the score and pre recorded songs, sound effects, any additional dialogue recorded and the sound we recorded on the day we filmed. You take all those elements into a theater sized room with all of the players: the Sound Mixer, the Sound Designer, the Music Editor, the Picture Editor and basically you go scene by scene and make sure the elements work and compliment each other: Music not too loud, dialogue all in the right place, fart sound effects rich and deep enough. Jay, Rich Perello (our Producer) and I joined that process which takes about 4 days or so. When we were done it all sounded beautiful.”
Broken Lizard also noted that while the Sound Mix is the final sound step, Color Correction is the final picture step. The next step in the process is waiting on the release date. It was noted:
“Fox Searchlight has reviewed the finished product and will soon inform us of the plan. When we have the release date you will be the first to know. That’s when trailers, posters and all the promo materials will launch. It’s painful to wait for this process because we’re dying to share this film with you, but each step takes us closer.”
