Cutting Monsters: Week 2

1st off…syncing is taking a bit longer than anticipated. I’ve felt a bit under the weather and have had a few hold ups. Even with the help of my assistant editors, it’ll take us most of this week. I’m hoping to be done by Friday, but am not holding my breath till Monday. (Did that make sense at all? I meant it most likely won’t be done until Monday.)

I’ve started looking through clips for trailer material. I’m supposed to have a sales trailer done asap. A sales trailer is a 2 to 3 minute piece meant to showcase the movie’s story and high points for potential buyers. In addition to that, I want to have a slick 30 sec teaser trailer done for a Halloween premier on some premium horror website.

So not really much new to say…

While syncing the footage, one thing has really been sticking out. The sound. I just want to take a quick second to thank Ben Adams for his superior sound work. He’s given me so much good stuff to work with; I doubt we’ll have very much ADR at all. The only stuff I know we have to ADR for sure is stuff I’d tried to do without him. Which I guess just goes to show you, if you want it done right hire a proper sound guy.

If anybody’s looking for a good sound guy, look him up.

Tell next week…
