Editing update

I honestly thought editing a film that I wrote and directed would be easy to edit but I was so so wrong. It's actually the opposite. It's so hard. I can't get past the raw footage. I can't stop cringing at my dialogue and directions. I keep questioning the shots taken.

I've made the decision to step down from editor and passing on the role to my second AC/clapper girl who just happens to be one of the best editors in my year. I've learnt that it's better off to get someone else to edit your own film since they'll have a fresh set of eyes when viewing the raw footage and they have their own interpretation that might be different and better than yours!

Very glad that I could take off one film on my list of films to edit. Now I got like two more things to edit and potentially 3 extra films to edit in the future. I realised that I very much prefer editing short, promo type like videos which makes sense because I would like to work in advertising one day.

Some film updates

* Passed on the harddrive to my editor and am hoping for a rough cut by the end of next week! Hoping for the final cut in the week after so it can be passed onto the colourist, sound designer and music composer.
* This film Iím re-editing for a friend is being delayed because she hasnít been responding to my messages even though sheís online which is lowkey getting on my nerves.
* Editing a promo video but director hasnít given us a brief so Iím very lost.
* Decided to produce my friendís dark comedy film. Iím the only female on the crew but am hoping to see some change in the future. This dark comedy is very interesting and makes a good comment on humanityís need for approval, hence my decision to produce. But also the fact that the director was actually my soundie/boom op for my film so Iím just returning the favour by helping him out for his film.

Film school starts again in exactly a month and I am just so excited to get back into it ;D
