Editing in the editing suites

So yesterday my group and I spent roughly 5 hours in the editing suite filming spoons and editing our footage. We’ve finally organised the audio and started on some sequences, but I came in today again to copy over some of the footage I shot for the projector scene and ended up spending 3 hours’ worth of editing some more. However, as I didn’t want to mess up anything my group and I had worked on, I created new sequences and managed to get four sequences done with just one left. By the end of the day, I realised that I had almost completely changed everything except for the spoon theory sequence! I’m not too sure my group will like what I’ve done because most of my ideas might be too weird or too experimental…

Going solo

Anyway, today I went to my church to film a bunch of random things, with the intention of filming some shots that will go over the audio of Chris explaining what the spoon theory is. HOWEVER, when I got there, an old man (most likely the care-taker…like the one from Harry Potter) from the other congregation was watching me like a hawk to make sure I didn’t mess anything up. Since I was planning to use the spoons from the church kitchen as props, I ended up not even being able to walk into the kitchen for fear that he might yell at me.

That being said, with the editing so far it doesn’t really feel like we’re doing anything tremendously original, although I really do like how we structured the opening sequence.

Tomorrow we’ll meet in the editing suites to edit for a whole day. Hopefully we can get a lot done before our rough cut/fine cut presentation on Tuesday.
