War and Wedding

GFM Studio has joined the post-production phase of Zaza Kolelishvili's War and Wedding to produce DVD and Blu-Ray versions of the film, along with subtitles in three languages (Georgian, Russian, English).

The movie premiered on January 21, 2010 in Amirani and Rustaveli theaters in Tbilisi, Georgia.

Interesting fact: the movie shot on HD PAL and Blu-Ray was originally authored in the same format (Georgia being in PAL region), though apparently no theater in Georgia was able to project PAL discs and the project had to be re-authored in NTSC Blu-Ray.

This may be interesting to the folks intending to release movies on Blu-Ray in Georgian theaters. Due to the reasons above, it is recommended to check with the theaters about their projection capabilities first.

You may read about War and Wedding at and Wedding at 24saati.ge in (Georgian).

The Soviet Story cover

In December GFM Studio finished Georgian dubbing and subtitling of Edvins Snore's popular documentary The Soviet Story.

The project was conducted by the support of Ministry of Education and Science of Georgia and in collaboration with the film creators.

For Georgian version GFM Studio translated, re-spotted, recorded and mixed the dialogue, as well as designed, authored the bi-lingual DVD and replicated 3000 copies.

While the limited edition Georgian-dubbed discs we replicated are probably all gone by now—having served a special purpose and not reaching retailers—the good news is that the international PAL and NTSC DVD versions of the film, distributed worldwide by Perry Street Advisors, now comes with Georgian subtitles as well.

The DVD can be purchased from its official site, or (NTSC Version) from Amazon U.S.
