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

Literally nothing more emotionally draining and frustrating than producing a film and not being able to find a house to film in!

Production literally starts in less than two weeks and we don't have a location yet oml :)))

If there's one thing I took out of this, it's that blackboards are way more aesthetic than whiteboards. And more charming.

Great work!

So I got myself a camera stabiliser/gimbal called DJI Ronin-S. Itís apparently one of the best ones on the market.

Iím hoping this device will help me encourage to make more videos and hopefully get me some experience as well. I feel though as a freelancer, videographers are high in demand so I thought this device would be a good investment.

However, I am having trouble setting up the damn thing! I have a gig this Wednesday and Iím gonna try my best to work this thing out before then because itís a waste of my money if I donít end up using this thing. Also kinda promised my client I would have a stabiliser with me on site lol.

Also I finally go back to film school which is exciting. Four months is too long of a break.

Edit: Nearly forgot to mention how crazy heavy the gimbal is!

Some film updates lol

Film I'm producing:
Wrapped up on the film on Sunday (was a three day shoot) and we're now in post-production. Currently on the lookout for potential film festivals to enter the film into and how to market it.

Film I wrote/directed:
Finally got the first draft from my editor and send some notes over. It's weird seeing your film actually cut together. Still not a fan of directing up to this day. I realise that I have no passion for it at all.

Freelance work:
Wrapped up on a gig today that I mentioned in my previous post. I basically had to film the Autumn/Winter lookbook for a company and I now have to edit it in post-production which includes finding royalty free music and colour grading. It's my first paid gig so there's a lot of pressure on me and how the final product will look like. I'm a bit annoyed that my camera stabiliser decided to have a breakdown on set and it just wouldn't stop shaking. Also I accidentally dropped my camera stabiliser and my camera on hard concrete on set. Good thing nothing major broke and only a couple of scratches were formed.

Film I'm editing:
Director hasn't gotten back to me about my eighth draft but I hope she does because I just want to make her vision and dream a reality.

I'm producing a mini dating show where the director and I will be match making people in our cohort and sending them off to cute lil dates.

I'm a keen bean. This is all my reality dating shows coming to life- but on a budget ;)
