How to Edit a Feature in 19 Days: Put a Ring on it – Day 8

Yesterday was a really lax post. I’m just really tired. The breakneck pace from pre-production to delivery on this movie is getting to me. I knew it was going to be a challenge and I welcomed it with open arms, but I’m longing now to be done.

On to the day at hand.

Started today taking care of a little Monsters in the Woods business. I’m trying desperately to get it finished up. The producers are putting pressure on me to get the visual fx finished. Unfortunately visual fx isn’t really my cup of tea and the few contacts I have that are capable are just too busy.

I’m going to finish the rough cut of Put a Ring on it today if it kills me. I need to have one full day to review it and the footage in order to plan properly for the pick-ups. I’ve already started a shot list, but I need to make double sure it’s complete.

My goal with the reshoots (in addition to catching the missing scenes) is to augment the coverage on others. Due to time constraints on the main shoot we had to short change coverage in several scenes, I’m hoping to rectify that situation on Saturday. I need to get the final cut done by Monday, so I can move on to sound and color correction.

Damn…it’s a lot of work. Should’ve asked for more money.
