It’s Christmas Eve and we’re just about to wind down for a couple of days of rest. But before we do, as a special thank you to everyone who has supported our work we thought we’d upload a working edit of a scene from the movie.
We chose the scene where we see Dr. Nagai’s seminal book, “The Bells of Nagasaki” finally find its voice and consequently, became a publishing phenomenon in 1949.
This scene seemed the perfect choice, as this very book was the reason we first embarked on our incredible film-making journey, resolute to make the life of Dr. Nagai and the events of “that day” better known for generations to come.
Please note – this scene, like all scenes at this stage, is a work in progress so there is no professional sound mix and some shots are as yet incomplete.
The Bells of Nagasaki finds a voice….
For those of you who have access to the “production hub” you can also see another scene – a personal favourite of directors Ian and Dominic Higgins as it showcases a little party trick of Dr. Nagai’s – a traditional dance called “dance of the Mudfish catcher”!
And just because it’s Christmas – a classic Christmas hit whose message couldn’t be more relevant.
A very merry Christmas from us all!
