Hurray! We're officially done rebuilding the entire first act of the assembly edit of the film: 25% of the full show.
That's the good news.
The bad news -- obviously -- is that we've still got 75% left to rebuild.
It's taking longer than originally estimated because we're doing more than just rebuilding the corrupt edit. Instead, we're taking a creative scalpel and reviewing each shot choice and often making different editing decisions now that we've grown intimately familiar with all the footage (re-organizing your footage three times has a way of doing that).
In the VFX dept, we're starting on new concept art for the animation for the front of the Griefers Ball invitation and for the Ethereal Woman (who welcomes Mary to the Griefers Ball), besides continuing design work on concepts for the Griefers Ball itself.
Okay, back to work.
