Final Review April 3, 2009Posted by William J. Meyer in Jack's Post-Production.
Last night Georgia, Jeff, Somekinda-vodka-beverage (which to my chagrin I initially mistook for Cherry Pepsi), and I had our final review of the film.
Reactions were positive, which I am certainly grateful for. We did find a few places to tighten up the pace. The largest such cut will be some business during the kitchen scene. After concentrating on specific shots for so long, it’s certainly helpful to take the 8th Wonder of the World view and readjust my perspective. A couple scenes still need a little more sound design work, and the climax is missing two or three shots. Nonetheless, it’s like the mothership has landed…and I’m just waiting for the emaciated aliens to step out.
At one point during the night a groggy and bleary-eyed Dylan stumbled into the living room and looked around. “Let’s go back to bed,” said Georgia. “Yeah,” said Dylan. Soon afterward, Frodo the cat sauntered in and gave me a kiss.
