So Far, Sola!
The final edit of Sola Gratia is now complete, and the film is done! It looks fantastic, and we’re thrilled with how it has turned out. A huge thanks to everyone involved. At some point we’ll be giving the film a good sound edit, and maybe a new score, but for now we’re proud to give you our first ever film!
