We are really very thankful for the help RCS gave us during our editing process. It really gave us trust into our film, in a time when we where quite critical with ourselves - especially with the more abstract episodes of the storytelling and also with the overall philosophical arch of it. So it helped us to come finally to a version that we love ourselves, that works in terms of dramaturgy, and that is radical, without compromises. The film will have its festival world premiere this year!

COMMANDER ARIAN

Feedback

I’m happy we had the chance to work with RCS during the final stage of the editing of our feature length documentary Commander Arian. The input from RCS was very concrete and useful and helped us improve a few key scenes in the film, like the beginning. We would like to highlight the personalised treatment we received and the promptness of their feedback and all communications in general. I hope we will have the chance to work with RCS in our next projects.

Great to hear from you. As we already told you, we are really very thankful for the help RCS gave us during our editing process. You really gave us trust for our film, in a time when we where quite critical with ourselves - especially with the more abstract episodes of the storytelling and also with the overall philosophical arch of it. So it helped us to come finally to a version that we love ourselves, that works in terms of dramaturgy, and that is radical, without compromises. Regarding the status of the film… now it is nearly finishes, only a few days of sound-re-mixing are open. We also already have really great festival news… it will premiere in an A-festival this year - so far we are not allowed to make it public, but as soon we are allowed to, we will tell you!

Brivacy Of Wounds

RCS was instrumental l for the crucial progress we made on the way to our IDFA premiere. The combination of Iikka and Yael gave us both very specific detailed feedback as well as a more big picture philosophical angle on our film. Since IDFA the film has been nominated for awards at festivals such as Gothenburg, HUMAN, Tromsø IFF, One World and Haifa IFF. As suspected it is hard to get any tv distribution. Onwards..

After almost a year of editing and a lot of test screenings with no tangible result, we were stuck and slightly desperate. The outside, e.g. international, view and the dramaturgical expertise as well as the fresh ideas how things could be told in a different way, helped a lot and opened new fields and thoughts which was liberating indeed! Moreover the feedback, remarks and criticism were direct but always very respectful.

I Had a Dream

Feedback

I thought the film was there, even though there was something that was not working, but I could not say what it was. I came to RCS with the idea to do some make up but it turned out that there was much more than a bit of make up to do. The beginning of the film was inintelligibile for the international audience and the urge for my protagonists' fight was not there. I had given many things for granted. That is the problem when there is not enough distance with respect to the footage. Working with Iikka and Menno allowed me and the editor to watch our film from an International perspective and discover weaknesses and strengths. By going once again through the footage (10 years of footage!) in order to provide answers made us discover a treasure hidden because of decisions made long ago. The film has incredibly improved, the protagonists have become tridimensional, the storyline is at the service of the protagonists. There is no doubt I will ask RCS' help also in the future. Thanks!

Emails and a skype call worked very well to understand each other and discuss solutions. It could be interesting if, during the process, there would be the chance to talk to each other while attending a co-pro market or a festival. However, the workflow worked very well for us, so I have no complaints at all.

I think the RCS is fantastic, and important.

What would I change?

Of some reason we did no do SKYPE meetings, and that was a mistake I think, it ended up being a lot of the same written, and a few things lost in translation, so also for our editor I think having had one or more SKYPE session would have worked magic. But also the very in depth scripts around the editing of the different sequences was also really good, and of course the big questions about where the film was going. So just the WAY we communicated I would change. More verbal communication in addition to the written.
