19 Hours at the Film School

Posted on June 2, 2007

I left for the Film School Thursday night at 11 and didn’t come home until 6pm this afternoon, thus surviving my first Film School sleep over. It wasn’t that I had procrastinated working on Cubicles, I just got into the editing zone and wanted to get as much done as possible before my second cut screening.

I ended up focusing a lot of time on tweaking the ending that things still came down to a time crunch when it was time to present the second cut, and I ended up leaving some glaring glitches in, such as the not mixing part of the music down and making the dialogue inaudible. But overall it went well and I’m quite happy with the way the film is turning out. Only four more days until picture lock.
