How to Edit a Feature in 19 Days: Put a Ring on it – Day 16

It feels like I've been working on this feature for months. But it's only been 1. Wow.

Funny how much my spirits are lifted as I close in the final cut. I finished the dialog cutting and mix early this morning. Everything is sounding just great. It’s now sounding like a real movie. I did some last minute video tweaking at the same time. Fixed a few awkward spots.

The only major thing left is color correction. I’m working on that with my AD/color grader John McGill. I just wanted to take second to thank this individual for all his hard work and dedication. He’s been right there with me from day 1 of pre-production through delivery. Next to me, he’s put in more hours on this than any other 2 people combined. This movie would have never been finished in the state it’s in without him.

Only 3 days left till deadline. It will be tight, but it’s looking good.
