The edit is going well – can’t say it’s flying - because there is tons of material.
And having the many angles, one starts to ask the inevitable artistic questions: when do I cut? Why? What will this next cut reveal that the previous didn’t?
Am I cutting because I’m getting bored looking at the actor or actress or is there a motivation to the viewer to cut?
Great questions really – it s the very reason why I get so much out of film making – without taking anything away from the actors – it is the edit that makes the film.
And I haven’t even begun to talk about the soundtrack –whose voice is loudest? Why? What is the soundscape?
I’m a lucky man…
