Image lock! Colorization well under way. We’re trying to give the film a specific look, something beyond the basic capture of the camera. What we’ve done so far looks really great and there’s only a few more things left to change. Also on the agenda would be fixing a few titles, editing the credits, and exporting the damn thing out of final cut. The movie is pretty big and has slowed my computer down significantly. In the same sense that a horse who is run to far will eventually die, this computer may be on the last legs of its journey.
I’m really happy with the way the film turned out. Exactly the feel I wanted to achieve. There’s something strange about it, not quite a western, almost noirish. It’s a film lost in time with characters who wear the clothes of a western.
It is the biggest project I’ve ever done, and it hasn’t been easy. I’ve thrown myself into this for the last chunk of my life, and I feel it’s paid off in grand degrees. I’m glad I dove in and went for it rather than coping out and making something “safer.” Sometimes you gotta eat the whale.
