Interview + Scheduling + More
I am finally beginning to sculpt my initial rough cut for the full doc and its very overwhelming. I underestimated how much footage i had and also here is when my storytelling skills are put to work. I have constructed the overall doc outline and so its there. Just have to edit out everything that doesn't belong.
Want to be transparent about this process, probably more for myself than anyone else since I'm almost sure no one reads it. But nonetheless, these posts are critically important. (a blog post about why I post will be soon to follow this post. )
Here is my editing schedule below:
9/21 - begin editing video and audio from focus group and begin drafting final shooting schedule
9/22 - finish focus group editing (about 10-15 min.) and finalize shooting schedule for remains shots/locations and confirm final interviews
