Cutting Monsters: Week 3

Damn, 3 weeks already. How time flies. Well, I think I've actually been posting the weekly updates like every five days, so maybe it's more like 2 1/2. Eh...

1. Syncing is done. It was a huge amount of work. I got a little help from 2 assistant editors, but still did the lion’s share myself. There were about 1000 video clips, most with 3 tracks of audio apiece. But it’s done.
2. 1st trailer is done. It’s a 60 sec. teaser. I’m really itching to share it, but I’m waiting for Halloween. It’s most likely going to be hosted on a popular horror site, details soon to follow. I don’t want to break my arm patting myself on the back, but it’s pretty kick ass. I can’t wait to see people’s reactions. I'm already halfway through another teaser and have laid out an outline for a 2 1/2 minute sales trailer. I need to take a few days away from trailer cutting though to clear my mind.
3. Starting work on the actual feature today. Don’t have much time, I also have regular work and need to cut a 30 sec furniture commercial. Basically, I’m just going to set up the edit file, maybe review footage from the 1st sequence. I plan to attack said sequence tomorrow.
4. My plan is to cut the movie chronologically. I should have a rough cut in less than 2 weeks. After reviewing it with producers, I’ll move forward into the finer cuts, sound design and VFX.

Look out for the trailer online Halloween day.
