In the Editing Trenches

Posted: February 26, 2017 in Uncategorized
We put the first UNF assembly together and then we created the roughcut and now we’re doing the hard yards of fine-tuning, constantly considering the big questions: Is this scene right? Is that scene too long? Is the story clear? Is it dragging? Does the film make sense?
It’s tough in the editing trenches. Vision becomes tunneled. We have license to experiment, but deadlines to hit. So glad to be following our amazing editor Callum Warrender through the maze.
Progress is good. The latest cut runs at 93 mins. Some sections are wonderful. Our music tracks are ace. The cinematography is dreamy, imaginative and beautiful. Many risks we took are paying off. Often I can glimpse the final film, and that makes everything worthwhile.
I’ll report back once we have Picture-Lock.
