Posting newest test edit this morning. Render render render is the name of the game when you change your mind about a particular edit. But I am liking the way this is beginning to feel. I feel the narrative coming through finally. Here is the newest 1 min. 20 sec clip.

starting to sit down and sift through all the footage, getting ready to accept the fact that I filmed in a few different formats, but overall, should not be too tough to figure it all out. Getting into creating a three scene edit to include the studio footage, the outdoor footage, and the sound track, of which I am now thoroughly changing my mind about my approach to the soundscape. Had a really good strong critique on that last week, and it made a big difference in the fact that I have to remember that other people need to relate, and not to be bludgeoned by my preference to have music dominate something. Was a good experience from great classmates and instructor. thanks everyone.

Entry date March 4, my darling mothers 79th birthday. Shot film for second half, the live performance aspect of the film, hardest long day I have had in many many years, but so worth the experience. I feel I learned more in one day than in the last 3 or 4 years. Had a fantastic crew of camerapersons, helpers, you name it. The band of course was simply right for the project. Everyone held steady in everything they needed and that I needed. Not one whine was to be heard anywhere. A heartfelt shout out and Thank you to Eric P Abramson from filmcartel.org, Matthew Campbell from The Hidden Design, Mark McCoin from CU Sound Dept.  and to Mighty Fine Studio and Production right here in North Denver. Here are a few photos:
