I’ve put together a very loose and general assembly of the footage according to the shooting script. Both producers, Ram and Shruti, looked over my assembly this weekend and gave some good notes for the editing process.

The first assembly is far too long but I am sure that with a few easy clean-ups, I will cut the time in a progressive way. I am also excited to play around with the footage, exploring different scenarios and paces in order to create the most dramatic and gripping piece that the footage will lend. Juan’s script sup notes are invaluable and have really helped me with the editing process especially the dinner table scene!

Looking at the footage made me realize yet again how lucky I was to work with such a talented and positive cast and crew. There are such funny moments and I can’t wait for you to see it. In the meantime, here are a few monitor snap shots from the editing lab.

P.S. Note to actors, when not on screen turn off your lavalier microphones… you had some pretty interesting conversations and I didn’t mean to be eavesdropping.
