Canberra movie company rides the ‘Tide’

CANBERRA’S SilverSun Pictures has been involved in producing a new, $3 million Australian film that is enjoying international interest and a 100-screen release.

The Canberra premiere of “Rip Tide” will be shown to 300 guests at the National Film and Sound Archives on September 5 and begins screening in Canberra at Capitol Manuka from September 14.

“We handled complete post production services, which is everything that happens after the camera stops rolling until the film hits the screen,” says Rohan Taylor, SilverSun’s producer/director and re-recording mixer for “Rip Tide”.

“And it was all managed from right here at our purpose-built facilities in Watson.”

SilverSun’s role involved taking all media from cameras and managing edits and quality control while shooting took place.

“We were on set from the first day of shooting in Kiama, with an editor and assistant, editing while the footage was being filmed given the short turnaround for the film,” says SilverSun’s managing director and the film’s post-production supervisor Andrew Marriott.

This is seventh feature film SilverSun Pictures has worked on, and the largest yet.

Rip Tide, directed by Rhiannon Bannenberg, is a film featuring Cora (played by American actress Debby Ryan) who ends up living it up down under. Cora’s story begins after a humiliating modelling incident. She books a one-way ticket out of New York to Australia.

Expecting a five-star holiday with her aunt, Cora realises that her beachside retreat is miles from the nearest city. She feels trapped until friendships bloom and romance sparks with handsome Tom, played by Canberra-born Andrew Creer. When the community realises Cora’s hidden talent as a fashion designer, they rope her into creating the outfits for the big surf festival. When Cora’s mum calls to say she’s secured a modelling contract, Cora must decide between career or a community she now loves.

SilverSun’s services included editing, grading, providing all data and colour management and setting up an edit village in Sydney. Expert sound design and dialogue editing were major requirements given a lot of footage was filmed out on the water and so shot mute.
