The champagne bubbles have barely settled, and yet BS Filmworks is already turning it attention to a final pickup shoot and post production for the 30-minute autobiographical film “Remembering Us.”

“We actually got a little snow on the ground, so we’re shooting today,” said producer Annie Schlax. “Happy New Year to us! We have our lead actor Mike Ostroski flying in from LA and I’ve done all of our SAG-AFTRA paperwork so we can be doing some exterior pickup shots that we weren’t able to capture in December. After these shots, we are wrapped on principal photography.”

This month, co-directors Lori Kay Allred and Scott Takeda are working with Emmy-winning composer Jerome Gilmer on the original music. Zlatko Makic is working on the audio edit. producer-editor Brock Sherman is tweaking the final cut, and colorist Matt Small is working on the initial color.

“Our goal is to be ready for entering Oscar-qualifiying festivals by Spring,” said Schlax. “We’ve got a good jump on things, and I’m excited to see the final product.”
