Repetition

last night was spent doing another cut of Vice Versa. I tightened up a few shots and did considerable work editing the ending collision sequence. its still missing one more thing apparently. if i had gotten a few reaction shots and maybe another take or two, i’d be set. there is still something about actually cutting film that i love, much more than farking around on a digital editor. running the film through my hands, looking at the normally indecipherable symbols and words on Academy Leader and knowing what they mean. its like i’ve been initiated into a secret group or something. of course, it is repetitious. but at like practicing for fencing, it is a repetition that results in improved technique. nothing at all like working for the anthro department where repetition exists for its own sake.
