A co-production of Trilight Entertainment and Java Post Production, the family movie A.R.C.H.I.E. - featuring the voice of Michael J. Fox - is entering the final phases of post-production.
Trilight Entertainment producer Shayne Putzlocher, writer/director Robin Dunne, and director of photography Layton Burton have been in the Java Post Production colour grading suite as we give the "look" of the movie a final polish.
And we want the movie to look nice and polished, as it's already been sold to several countries around the world.
Starting in the foreground and moving clockwise: Java Post visual effects supervisor/animation lead Kevin Drysdale, director of photography Layton Burton, writer/director Robin Dunne, Trilight Entertainment producer Shayne Putzlocher, and Java Post producer Joan Speirs are all seated in the comfy office of this guy...
...Java Post owner and head colourist, Jack Tunnicliffe, seated at the controls of our DaVinci Resolve colour grading system. Jack is also a co-executive producer, aerial photography pilot, and visual effects artist for A.R.C.H.I.E.
Working on the opening scene of A.R.C.H.I.E., with James Whittingham as "Officer James" appearing on the screen.
And here we meet one of our movie's villains: "Hugh," played by the hilarious and impressively coiffured Fred Ewanuick.
Above, Jack uses his impressive DaVinci Resolve colour grading skills to literally make p**p look good. (Don't ask. It'll all make perfect sense when you watch the movie.)
A.R.C.H.I.E. writer/director Robin Dunne stands for a closer look at the screen and, in doing so, manages to find a great lighting spot for his hair. As Robin joked: "It's all about the hair."

Written and directed by Robin Dunne (Sanctuary, Space Milkshake), A.R.C.H.I.E. is the story of 15-year-old Isabel Sullivan, who, after recently losing both her parents in a car accident, has just moved to a small town to live with her uncle Paul, the town's mayor. Feeling very alone, Isabel befriends a stray dog named Archie. Or, more accurately, A.R.C.H.I.E. - Artificial Robotronic Canine Hyper-Intelligence Experiment.
This ain't your normal pound pooch. He's part machine, part dog, and totally awesome!
