Day 228

(Technically: 372)

Met with Yemane yesterday. He had been out of the country filming a documentary all summer, so it was great to sit down and chat with him about the progress of NYZ. As always, he had great advice of where to go forward from the rough cut, namely trying the Monday Night Faculty Screenings that he runs along with a few other NYU professors to watch students' rough cuts and give feedback. This Monday is booked, but we'll see if the next one isn't filled up yet.

Also working on the re-shoots+pick-ups, which we hope to complete before the end of the month, because autumn is fast approaching and it would be ideal to make it look like it did last April when we shot the rest of the film.

Day 221

(Technically: 365)

Pre-Production officially began one year ago today, with the first day of class where we pitched our project ideas in the hopes of getting the coveted allotments. How nerve-racking, how young, full of cautious optimism, blissfully unaware of the trials that lied before us...

Now, one year later, (not in DC Comics time, mind you), we have returned to school to finish NYZ, which is currently undergoing its second rough cut, hopefully getting towards a fine cut in the next month or so.

While one shooting day was affected by rain, forcing us to postpone that scene to a later date, there are other spots that the rough cut has brought to light that need tweaking, so a few pick-ups are currently being planned as well as the scene we need to re-shoot. And now that we know how it all fits together, we know how to best utilize the time to make the final pieces fall into place. For now, courage.

I now have a Vimeo account! Well, that's a bit of a lie, since I've had it for a little while, but it's taken me only till yesterday to get some of my videos up! Check it out here!
