Ok, it's been awhile, but I figured I would let you all know what's currently up.
Recently, Russ moved from his apartment in Rockville, CT to an apartment in Bethel, CT. Now, for those of you not in the know, Rockville is in Northeastern CT, only a stone's throw away from MA. Bethel is in Southwestern CT, only the same stone's throw away from NY. Needless to say, it was an epic move, to be sure.
This move left us with a number of weeks where we were simply not able to edit. So, when the time came last monday night to get back in the saddle, we both had to wonder whether or not we would be able to work with the same enthusiasm and productivity as before...
In a simple reponse: No, we didn't work with that same enthusiasm and productivity. In fact, I would say that we exceeded our previous work ethic tenfold. I mean, really, we're kicking ass right now. We are beginning to really hit a stride with this thing, and I can't help but me extremely excited. I know Russ feels the same.
We are hoping to acheive the first real editing milestone soon: the rough cut. People are understandably excited by this prospect, but there is no way that they are as excited as me or Russ. It's a kind of magic, being able to piece all of these random moments and performances into a cohesive story, and have it not only make sense, but be entertaining as hell.
You see things that you didn't see whilst filming. You react differently to performances in editing than you did when you filmed it...
Very cool...more to come.
