It’s easy to get distracted or frustrated, but now, I’m so close to finishing the 5.1 audio mix of Will Reading that I’m chomping at the bit to get it done. There’s still a few mountains left to climb, but I’m certainly well beyond the halfway point.
Meanwhile, I’ve also added a few shots here and there and recut a critical opening scene, not to mention the new scene we filmed and added to open the movie! Sometimes, it’s hard to tell what you’re missing, and identifying the problem is only the first step because then you have to find the solution! I think we’ve done that with this new first scene, or “Scene 0” as I the sequence is labelled in the edit. Meanwhile, I cut about 30 seconds from the movie that no one will ever miss. I never realized how unbearably slow the pace was until I watched it on a big screen with an audience, so never underestimate a true test screening!
I should also welcome our new cast member, Jeanine Conrad! She stepped in and did a phenomenal job and we’re lucky to have her in the flick. Another note: I’m very excited to add some music from Dylan Curry, who you might better know as Old Cousin Bigfoot – check out his show on YouTube! His tune really upped the energy at the opening of the movie and it makes a HUGE difference.
Well, that’s all for now. Stay tuned for updates!
