Render This

An early effects shot that will be redone.

Due to some technical issues it looks like the tweaks I want to do to the older effects shots may require me to almost redo them from scratch. Not completely as certain elements I had to create as separate clips. However I may have to recreate most of the elements. Or, I just leave them as is. Well, if you know me then you know I don’t like to settle. I admit I have my lazy moments but when it matters I fight. And I fight to win. And in the case of my film I am fighting for a victory.

So as much as it will probably kill me this week I will redo a lot of those early effects shots. A lot of shots need to be done too but it just means I’ll be putting on more coffee. Also means I need to delay the new trailer a little as there are three effects shots that will be in there from the newer batch.

I also decided to slightly reedit one sequence as I think it’ll work better a different way. Which in turn might mean I need to re-score it. I’m not sure if the current score for the scene will time out correctly now.

Just when I think I am so close I am so far away. Seems to be a running theme lately. But like I said I fight to win. Time to roll up the sleeves and get to it. This will be a very long week but once it is over I will finally be able to say the film is (basically) completed. Or I will be hospitalized. Whichever means I can get a little rest.

Two more festival deadlines are approaching and fast. It amazes me how time is flying by lately. Outside of the trailer there will be several promotional items created. Time to start heavily getting the word out.

Then it’s back to work on the new film. Wait … I thought I was going to be able to get some rest?
