ASYLUM EDITORIAL has helped put Edgar A. Poe's epic poem of love and
loss, Annabel Lee on the screen for the first time as an animated story.
Annabel Lee was post produced on various computers in the DIGITAL ASYLUM
EDITORIAL studios. The initial 16mm film footage was transferred to
beta video stock then converted into digital images in Final Cut Pro's
non-linear editing system. The story pushed the application to its limits
resulting initially in tens of video tracks and dozens of audio tracks.
The title sequence and graphics were also designed and produced at the
DAE studio, utilizing everything from Metacreation's Logomotion to Adobe
After Effects software. The audio was completed on the studio's Pro
Tools station and the rest of the compositing was finished on Puffin's
CommotionDV and Discreet Logic's *effect software.
Editor, Sound Designer and Compositer, Tony Pellegrino has been working
professionally for almost twenty years and has many awards to his credit.
He has known director George Higham since their college days in the
late 80's. With their collaboration as producers of Annabel Lee, they
have embarked on a dream of producing high quality artistic works that
challenge the everyday norms of the medium.
DIGITAL ASYLUM EDITORIAL's future lies in maintaining its independent
spirit and cutting edge vision. The facility will be expanding next
year once again to include Avid Media Composer, DVD Studio Pro authoring
software and hardware and box, label, poster and graphics design to
its all-in-one post production experience. In addition DAE plans to
be producing and co-producing various independent feature films.
