Day 287: So technically, I’m done with scene 6 and scene 7. I say technically because I really could edit more on both of them and I might. But for now, I’m saying I’m technically done with them and moving onto scene 8 today. I gotta pick up my pace! But, at the same time, I MUST do good work. I know I said this during the last edit crusade and it was true then and it also applies to this one: this edit pass is crucial and key to actually having a completed documentary film. In other words, if I don’t take this pass and take it well, we will never finish! Dramatic? Yes. But nonetheless true.
I can’t say I got in a good groove yesterday. There was no real flow. Instead there was dawdling, there was daydreaming, there was napping. I hope to do better today. Yes, I’ll be editing on the weekends from here on out. To finish by December 31st at 11:59pm will require 7 days a week…actually, I plan to build in one day a week away. But 6 or 7 days a week, that’s okay. My mind is set and clear on what I have to do and despite the slow restart, I’m pretty pumped up to do it. Does that mean I’ll actually do it? I sure hope so!
Until tomorrow, create from what you have….hope.
