Wrapped!

by on Jun.28, 2009, under General, Metal Sandwich

14 hours in 104f degree Texas heat.  I must be insane – or stupid.  Miserable.  But misery loves company.  Amazing there were 15 other idiots out in the heat along with me making a movie.

OK, they’re not idiots at all.  Rather they are creative and passionate people who wanted to team up together and see what we could accomplish.  Interesting, I did not know any of them before I started recruiting the team.  We all started as perfect strangers.  Now they are my friends.

Last night I joined our editor and one of the writers in the editing suite around midnight; now it is almost noon.  Delirium from sleep deprivation has already set in since I arose at 5:30 am yesterday.  Having dreaded the oncoming of yesterday for over a month, I am glad that yesterday is gone and that today we will have done all we can do and turned in our movie.

Happily, I am well-pleased with the product I am seeing, thanks to EVERYONE on the team.  As in any endeavor such as a 48 hour film making race mistakes will be made.  In fact, mistakes are more likely the norm than the exception.  My team did wonderful work together and I am very proud of them.  Some of our shortcomings and errors have been addressed and overcome.  To that point I am finding myself laughing out loud.

Afternoon update: 4:37 pm and Tim is still editing – currently normalizing the audio levels of all the audio clips.  Christian has sent me his music files he composed today, and we still need to put those into the movie.  The deadline is 7:30 pm for me to turn in the final production.  We still have the music, titles & credits, rendering, and burning to do; plus driving, parking, and handing in.  My wife has called me to see if I need a ride downtown and home.  I told her I took a nap in the editing suite.  Lord keep me safe and awake!
