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.
last night i put together an assembly of the rushes for Vice Versa. i think today we’ll probably watch them in class. I’m pretty sure the rest of class time is going to be spent watching clips. and talking about clips. or listening to Bill talk about clips. in minute and downward spiraling detail. i’d much rather just jump on the Steenbeck and go to town.
