Working Title - Post Production Survivor Update

Every time I work on a movie, the same thing always becomes fundamentally clear to me.  I do not have the patience to be an editor. Because of that, I have the utmost respect for editors, regardless of whether or not they’re my wife. Which in this case, she is.

To sit there and look at the same footage day in and day out, hearing the same lines of dialogue over and over again, sitting at a computer for hours at a time; I’m amazed more editors aren’t certified bat-shit insane.

In my mind, they all should look like this at some point:image


And just for the record, I’m especially happy that my loving wife/editor does not look like this.  That is not to say that I don’t hear her laughing to herself in the editing dungeon.  Or that she doesn’t randomly break out quoting the movie at odd times.

Maybe I just don’t have the mental fortitude for post-production.  But as I watch my movie for the 132nd time, I feel a bit like Alex, just without the kind man giving me eye drops.

And so what if every night I go to sleep I silently think to myself, “Is this the night she snaps and murders me in my sleep?”

So to all the other filmmakers out there in the throes of post-production I leave you with the words of Edward R. Murrow:

"Good Night and Good Luck"

One of my favorite things about San Diego was the Botanical Garden in Balboa Park.  Come at the right time of the day, lighting is beautiful for some gorgeous shots.  This is one of my personal favorites from shooting up there.

Thanksgiving!

This year I’m thankful for all the corporations exploiting their workers and keeping them from spending more time with their families. While you make obscene amounts of money by opening 6 hours earlier, you simultaneously hurt the people you keep at poverty level wages. By doing that, you allow the masses to get great deals on high end electronics (which also exploit workers), name brand designer clothes (made in china, taiwan, thailand, etc. by child labor) and all in the true spirit of American Christmas Consumerism.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to numb my guilt with turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie while watching football laced with commercials that appeal to my irrational consumer-driven mind.

Happy Walmart-mas!
