Strong Voices. Strong Girls.
In 2019, Littleflick Pictures completed the documentary portion of its newest short film, “Strong Voices. Strong Girls.” about Buffalo Girlchoir. Preparation began to schedule the girls performing a song for the film’s finale in the spring of 2020. Then the pandemic locked everything down.
In the summer, Littleflick devised a plan to film the girls performing in a safe, socially distant manner. Through extensive audio cleanup and a few computer graphic tricks, the film was finally completed. It premiered on October 15th, 2020 at a pop-up drive-in for the members of Buffalo Girlchoir.
In a year like no other, this film shares a message of joy and hope. We hope you enjoy it.
Filmed with the Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro and Sony FS5. Edited in Davinci Resolve, animation and compositing in Adobe After Effects, green screen keying in Primatte, audio cleanup in Adobe Audition.
A film by Gerald MacKay. Interviews by Elizabeth MacKay. Makeup by Dani Weiser.
