How to Edit a Feature in 19 Days: Put a Ring on it – Day 7

Today I passed the 60-minute mark in the rough cut. Assembling a rough-cut is both exciting and humbling. Exciting seeing certain scenes come together with little to no effort and humbling (as a director) to find others that (as an editor) you'll have to bump up a level.  

Tomorrow, I’ll finish the rough layout and then go through it with a fine toothcomb looking for any additional pickups that might be needed on Saturday.
I worked a bit on new more comedy-centric trailer. My 1st pass turned out a little more dramatic than I had anticipated. My dp (who also edits) is working on a more comedic trailer as well.
