Dark Castle Entertainment – Wide Release
Gothika was a film that changed my career path. It was the first time I worked for Joel Silver’s horror & thriller shingle, Dark Castle. It was the first time I followed a Hollywood movie all the way through dailies to the final sound mix and print. And it was my first time working on the Warner Bros. lot.
Directed by the celebrated French director, Mathieu Kassovitz, and cut by the Cesar-winning editor, Yannick Kergoat, Gothika was a model of efficient movie-making. Despite an accident on set resulting in a broken arm for Hale Berry and a two-week production hiatus – not to mention a last minute re-write and re-shoot in LA – we were checking release prints a mere six months after the first day of principle photography in Montreal.
