With only 5 weeks until our last hand in EVER, I’ve been trying to knuckle down and get all my editing done and dusted asap so that I can get the two films to the sound people in plenty of time. So far, I’m pretty much on target in terms of what I’ve completed and what I’ve still got left to do, which is nice, so I’m not too stressed…but I see that changing fairly soon as the deadline looms ever closer!
In terms of the progress I’ve made with this project, last week was a definite turning point. Yesterday I completed (what I hope to be) the final cut of my action trailer and this is one piece of work that I am actually really proud of. I’ve shown it to a few people who I trust to tell me the truth and they’ve all really liked it, saying that it makes them want to watch all the films in it, and that they’re impressed with the way it fits together with the music to make a cohesive narrative, which is great because that was pretty much what I’ve been aiming for.
This is the greatest film showreel I have EVER seen. So full of power and emotion, it moves you in a way that I didnt think was possible. If I can be even half as a good an editor as this girl, I will be happy.
Here’s an interview with the editor of this video, Gen, explaining the process she went through to get this incredible end result: http://www.slashfilm.com/making-filmography-2010-gen-ip-interview/
