I Think I’m Done Editing

Well, I will be by 10 am tomorrow as that’s when the teacher comes in to lock picture. But when you have your own schedule, it’s hard to finally say, “this is it, the film is done.” Each time I watch Cubicles I find something to tweak or adjust. I’ll be glad to have the picture locked so I know there’s nothing more I can do.

If you’re editing a project, I think it’s a good idea to give yourself deadlines and stick to them. If that’s too hard, find a film festival you really want to enter and use that as your deadline (but within reason – don’t sacrifice the quality of your film to try to make Sundance).
