Just a quick update to let you know what's been going on since our sneak peek at WonderCon.
I've been doing assembly edits of the scenes we shot during the pick-ups and 2nd units. We shot a ton of additional footage during this period -- not so much because the film is bad (a common reason for multiple pick-ups) but because it's such an ambitious project and we just didn't have time to get everything we wanted during principal photography.
Anyway, I'm working my way through the new scenes and then going to go through the entire revised assembly tightening it up and adding the remaining inserts we picked up. It will be a long process, but very much a fine-tooth-comb approach. Soon after that, I'll toss it back to the editor and she'll refine the edit, add the music and we'll have a rough cut (at last).
Here are a quick sampling of the pick-up scenes recently assembly edited:
- Bathtub reshoot
- NYC Walk and Talk between Tix and Mary (a new scene)
- NYC Mosque reshoot
- NYC Restaurant reshoot
- NYC Taxi
- Griefers ball doorwoman
- NYC vendors
What happens in each scene? What does this all mean?
You gotta wait to see the film itself....So back to editing it now....
