As I write this post, I’m currently exporting what will be the penultimate cut of He’s Here, which will be shown in class tomorrow. While I’m not done yet, it’s crazy to think that this project, something which Kaylin and I have been working on since the summer, is almost over. However, now is not the time to reflect (hint: that’s next week’s post). The cut that I show in class tomorrow will be the photo lock of He’s Here, which means that all the visuals will be final. That being said, next week is sure to be a busy week as there is a lot to be done with audio.
Although my main goal this previous week was to mainly focus on editing the video and fiddle around with volume levels on the side, as well as throwing in music, this upcoming week will be my and Kaylin’s last chance to toy around with audio before we submit our thesis for review. Though we may be submitting a “final” cut to out Professors, it’s important to note that it will be something that I intend to revisit in the future. Even though I feel like I’ve been able to incorporate useful bits of feedback over the past couple of weeks, I’m sure there are multiple ways that the story of Lane, Will, and David could be told.
All in all, while this short may not be winning any Oscars or other awards, at least not yet, it’s been a rewarding process to see an original story that Kaylin and I began workshopping almost 6 months evolve into a short. I look forward to writing to you all next week.
