|Miles and I|
On Friday we wrapped the shoot! I had assumed that upon screeching the words "that's a wrap!" a sudden sense of relief would shower down upon me- but this was not the case. On Thursday I am actually DPing my best friend Miles' junior thesis (he was actually my AD and gosh darn he is amazingly organized and focused!) So, I've been busy preparing for that. Last night I updated the shot list and drew out some schematics for camera placement. After about an hour of that I went into a trance-like state, jamming out to crazy accordion music, dancing alone in a little editing room below my dorm into the wee hours, playing out his movie in my head over and over again... ohhhh yeah.

Due to limited time and tight scheduling I had to cut out my very prized beginning and end dolly. It was a hard sacrifice to make, but I made an exciting trade off: I am going to animate the beginning and end! One of my close friends (Irene) is going to do some drawings for me and then I am going to do the animation in After Effects.
Anyways, I gotta go back to workin on my friend's thesis! Wish me luck!
