First cut: Producers notes for the filmmakers

  • Less is more – cut the film down, I would say by 60% at least – every shot must ear its keep – if you can remove it and the story still works, you should cut it
  • Re-grade, it’s a little milky right now
  • Too much music means it has less impact when you need it

    way too long, you can cut out at least 3/4 of the movie. And work a little bit on the grading.

    Great look of the characters but find the crying at the beginning a bit too overacted and dramatic. finding it also very long, could use some dynamics.

    Heard on the trimming of the time for the film. Agreed on working on grading. After exporting the film it did come out more milky looking during some parts.

    @david rahi...glad you have that hose at home.
