I’ve been Missing in Action lately – hunkered down in the editing room with my intuition film.
My apologies for not responding to some of your comments here, and especially to Julian, who has argued his case for Christianity with his usual level of scholarship and passion.
I’ll be shutting down the editing at the end of this week. We need more funds to continue, plus I need to shoot some more interviews too. Jennifer and I will be going to the US in early November to begin that shooting, which will last about 3 weeks.
I’ll start up editing again when we land more investment. It’s a stop-go process, this film.
It’s starting to look pretty good though I think.
Then again, I’d be the last person to know.
It’s feeling like the film I’ve wanted to make though.
The cut is sitting at 83 minutes, not including end credits. I’ve had to leave a lot out, given that I shot more than 75hrs of material. I also shot more than 60 interviews, and at this stage I’m only using 24. So a lot has hit the cutting room floor.
But the film now has pace, and it’s compelling.
So that’s why I’ve been Missing in Action. It’s been an intense period, and I’ve not had the brain space for other things, other than watch the Swannies lose in the Grand Final.
Oh well – I love my footy team…
