Who ever said “… you never finish a film edit you just abandon it…” knew the feeling of locking off the Beaconsfield cut over the weekend. But I think the feeling is always there whether you have 10 weeks or 10 months or ¬†just 4 weeks as we did on this project. There is always something to tweak and explore and I don’t think you could ever feel 100% ‘finished’.

This is what the film looks like… all 125 minutes of it.

Huge thanks to editor Andy Canny who was a pleasure to work along side. Andy put in so many extra hours to try and make the film as good as it could be in the time allocated. Over the many late nights, early mornings and a few of all nighters, I appreciated his objective eye and attention to detail.

    125 minutes in 4 weeks ?! Is that some kind of world record ?

  2. Glendyn Says:

    It should be! But as I hinted… it is possible to cut a film in 4 weeks, you just have to work 20 hours a day to do it…!

    Hats off to both of you then. And get some sleep !

    big ups to you and AC. if anyone can keep their eye scalpel-sharp after 20 hr days it would have to be you pair… nice work. and, importantly, nice looking timeline!

  8. Glendyn Says:

    Agree with you on the timeline… what’s the point of cutting a film if the timeline don’t look good.

    Congratulations Glendyn.
    Timeline look like the above ground and alot of the below ground root system. A little like the film I suppose.
