So... after a fairly intense week of cleaning up shots, finally finished reshooting everything. I think.
Whether it is the final photography or not, the plan is to get at least a preview version ready to upload to YouTube or Vimeo so that I can submit it to a couple of festivals. (Ottawa's deadline is midnight tonight.... I am going for it on that, but depending on how everything turns out, that MAY have to wait another year. But I will do what I can.)
It takes about 10 to 12 solid hours to shoot the thing... would have been unbearable if I had kept the camera set-up in my studio's loft. Thankfully, I moved it down to the main area, had the air conditioning on full blast all night (now the main area is comfortable - the loft is STILL a sauna!).
After posting this, I will be backing up the files, then do the editing (if I still have any steam). Probably another 10 hours if work ahead of me. (Fingers crossed...)
