Coffee, Time, and Snacks


Coffee, Time, and Snacks 1Cubicles is locked, taken away from me, abandoned – however you want to put it, it’s done. During the two week editing process I kept track of how long I spent at The Film School and what kept me awake/full during that time. Here’s how that went:

  • 3 Cups of Coffee
  • 2 Iced Grande Soy Latte
  • 1 Large Ice Soy Coffee
  • 1 Large Iced Soy Mocha Latte
  • 2 Diet Cokes
  • 2 Apple Juices
  • 1 Coca-Cola Cherry Zero
  • 1 Cranapple Juice
  • 4 Tacos
  • 2 Italian Ices
  • 2 Bowls of Pops
  • 2 Strawberry Pop-tarts
  • 2 Packs Saltine Crackers
  • 1 Order of humus
  • 1 Peanut butter Jelly Sandwich
  • 1 Elf Cookies
  • 1 Pack of Ruffles
  • 1 Pack of Fritos
  • 1 Jumbo Honey Bun

From the notes I kept, I figured I spend about 60 hours at the Film School in the edit lab over two weeks (336 hours). That number can probably be tripled for the amount of work I did at home.

I thought two weeks wouldn’t be enough take 5 hours of footage and turn it into an 8 minute film, but I felt it worked out pretty well

I’d like to say when I’m rested I’ll post some afterthoughts about the whole editing process, but my next job as Unit Production Manager has already started with an ATL meeting tomorrow. I’ll still post – I just won’t be rested.
