First Cut Ready; Dubbing and Music to Begin Next Week

Director Prasanna Vithanage returned from Chennai, India this week with the first rough edit of "Akasa Kusum." A. Sreekar Prasad, who also co-produced, edited the movie, cutting the film to a compact 95 minutes. He worked with Vithanage over a period of two weeks at his studios in Chennai.

Vithanage, commenting on how his film looks, said the edit was "tight," saying it eliminated unnecessary spaces and kept the action moving along briskly, whilst keeping the film's emotional core strong. Vithanage also mentioned that his leads had given great performances.

Dubbing is scheduled for later this week, tentatively from the 1st to the 4th of May, following which Vithanage will work on the film's music score with composer Lakshman Joseph de Saram. Following this, he returns to India to complete the final edit and print of "Akasa Kusum". As reported on this blog earlier, he hopes to have the film ready by the end of June with hopes of a permiere in September.
