And Then I Woke Up | Producers
In spite of the indispensable contributions of the cast, movies simply don’t get made without significant help behind the scenes from individuals talented in many walks of life from business to creative.
In that sense, calling film ‘the director’s art’ means that a director is only as good as his or her team in a very much collaborative process.
Nowhere is this more true in the unsung heroes that are the films producers who provide the financial support and practical logistics that allow the film to made in the first place. In the case of And Then I Woke Up, particular thanks goes to Gil and Gladys (Aran) Cohen, and certainly Chris Villafuerte, whose photograph also sparked the creative idea for the movie.
And Then I Woke Up | Crew
Filmmaking is also a tangible medium that is in many ways, is only as good as it looks.
Significant help in that department was provided by Cinematographer, Ahmet Sesigurgil, and Colorist Guillermo Tuñon who created the imagery, with help from Makeup and Special effects Artist, Lindsey O’Donnell, who made the actors look their best. Aimee Musil’s experience and insight in choosing the right actors is also acknowledged on the Cast Page, as again here with thanks for her assistance as Casting Director.
And Then I Woke Up | Post-Production
Second only to the Director in determining what a film actually becomes, is the Editor who assembles it, and George Manatos came through with thanks and flying colors demonstrating his considerable skills as an accomplished Director himself.
Music is among the very last elements added to a film, and in this case, so intertwined with the excellent quality of the sound captured by Mike Snyder, that Martin Bayless was able to manipulate it into the musical fabrics of the movie itself making it a seamless experience. It also turned Martin’s role of composer into foley artist, dialog editor, sound designer and recording engineer for the final sound mix reflective of his talent.
