- I really did write
the title as "Hell Week" and then I said: "who am I
kidding?" I adore this shit. This is the phase
where you take all the material and spin a yarn. There
is magic to it. Suddenly pieces that you vaguely
imagined how they'd fit... form an actual narrative.
- The process for me
is simple - get a rough picture lock, render it, then
watch it from beginning to end while taking notes.
First watch: 57 notes. 57 issues varying from simple
to extremely complicated fixes for the following day.
You basically work all day, render overnight, then
watch in the morning and repeat. The problem? You fix
a good chunk of the problems (day one, was down to 15
issues) but then on the second watch you add 30-40
more because your fixes need fixes.
- It goes on like
this the entire week. And then one morning you watch
it and although there are still mistakes to fix? You
actually know you have the movie pretty locked. Sure
there's audio issues, or color issues but the meat of
the EDIT is done. That's where I was Friday night and
Saturday morning was able to watch the film knowing
the bulk was over. Made a trailer...
- ...and now I just
spend the week putting the "deliverables" together for
my distributor. All the pictures, descriptions,
captions... that kind of stuff. Will probably be able
to deliver it to them this weekend and the movie could
be out the week of Thanksgiving! Cannot believe
- So I'll save my
thoughts on everything for when it's actually public,
but suffice to say there's a sense of relief to this
that's pretty incredible. So ready to end this saga,
end this year, hell end this decade and focus on
future films that have NOTHING to do with that
- Bring on the
