Two years for an 11 min. short film. In that time I have:
Re-Roofed my house by myself (mostly), leveled my back yard, built a shed, scraped and painted (some of) my house, dealt with a car accident and replacing my wife's car, re-financed my house, driven to L.A. and back, and kept my job and family intact with all of the extra curricular activity that entails.
Well, that will be why, looks like someone needs to focus their priorities ;)

Pretty sure I have at least one of every shot...Under exposed, over exposed, soft, poorly framed, ect. with some really nice shots thrown in for aesthetics.

I've rearranged the timeline numerous times to see what works best to move the story along and think I have it worked out the best I can. Still tightening it up here and there as I go. I find myself needing to walk away from it and return later with fresh eyes or I'll end up messing with a sequence until it no longer works and need to reverse what I've done. Counter productive. Working in the audio as I get a sequence where I want it so I don't have to move any more clips than I need to while I'm still shuffling and refining.

I have my final location for my final shots, and the smoke has cleared out for now, just need a minute and a copilot to land this thing. If I could get two of the shots solo I'd have them already.

Back to editing.

Fuck it, I'm done trying to finish this thing! I'm tossing the whole fuckin' thing in the garbage.












Just kidding.

That'd be funny though.
I'm so close.

Hah, you wouldn't be the first to do so!

Looking forward to seeing the final product!

Should not have joked about it.

My main HDD crashed and burned, fully. I still have all of the footage and audio, I backed them up on multiple drives, and I was smart enough to backup my Premiere project files on a nearly weekly basis so I only lost about two days of editing. That is unless I can recover the last project file from the dead HDD. It's not looking good for any recovery though, my comp shows the drive in post but not in disk management so I guess it depends on if the recovery software can see the drive or not.

My only real setback, aside from losing a crap-ton of other stuff that I didn't bother to backup, is Adobe not letting me regain legal ownership of my software...I seem to have lost rights to my ownership of my cs6 master collection, pretty sure someone pirated out my serial or some such, so Adobe is rejecting it. I hate the idea of not having physical media but I may just have to go subscription. I'm going to argue with Adobe for a bit before I cave though. Sucks.

Principal photography has officially wrapped!!!!

I have all of the shots I need to put out a completed short film. I'm still picking up the pieces from my hard drive failure like re-downloading and installing all of my fonts that I used in my title sequences so I can put those back together, but my programs are back up and running. I did lose a bit of editing but who cares?! I have it all shot now!! On to post!
