Holiday Production

I've spent the majority of these past few weeks jumping between social engagements and video editing. 'Tis the season for post production it would seem. But cutting continues, with or without the wassail. As of right now (now being the writing of this post) we have approximately one month left before our extended deadline with the PVA. I'm a little nervous because there's still quite a bit to edit. Including graphics, audio and color correction. It's entirely possible that a version will be given to our Washington granters that contains a final visual edit, music and temporary graphics. I'm not sure that I alone will have time to complete color correction in time.

The editing has been tough given the fact that we are still selecting the songs and securing the music rights. Jeff has taken on this task, while I continue to cut and snip. The holidays have also hampered editing.

The immediate goal is to get the music, assemble the entire production and hand over a cut to our graphics and sound guys. Clarence! If you're up there, I hope you can put in a good word with out resident Zeitgeist and help us get this baby finished on time. I'm confident we'll get it done. I just wish there were more hours in the day to cut.

We also have one more shoot. GASP! Adaptive video game play. We've got a sip and puff controller that works really well (pictured above). This amazing, custom made device allows quadriplegics to play games without the use of their hands. It's great. We also have our talent lined up for the gaming shoot. This will be the final shoot of our production.

More to come as we ease on down, ease on down the Yellow Brick Road.
