Week 5 – A Visit from the Dees
Jenn Dees (who plays Luci — the main character in the film) stopped by my man cave to review the current footage (approx. 14 mins and change). I’ve still got a long way to go before finishing a rough cut.
We had a great discussion on how the story is taking shape based on what we shot and how it’s coming together in the edit. Some storylines were sharpened while a brand new one was discovered….well, we shot some footage and were not sure how to use it or where it’d show up, but Jenn suggested where it could go and it worked perfectly. My creative juices are really going after talking with her – in fact I’m going to experiment soon on some other ideas that were brought up.
After our meeting, I pulled BEFORE THE DEVIL KNOWS YOU’RE DEAD, GEORGE WASHINGTON and ALL THE REAL GIRLS off the shelf to do a little studying.
