I wish my film was done and ready to be sent out, but it’s not. I’m still editing and even after that, it needs to go back to different folks for titles and credits, color correction, original music and sound editing. I realize now, that I was terribly naive to think that I understood film making enough to complete this one in a few months. I knew I would need a good story(check), talented crew and actors (check, check), beautiful location (check), and commitment to the project (check!), but I didn’t realize it would take so much time and I’d need so much patience! (nada, zip, zilch).
Fortunately though, when I’ve committed to a project, I’m stubborn enough to see it through to the end no matter what. But I’m also really lucky, in that there are folks in my life, that are pulling for me. They are there with words of encouragement to finish this film, to keep on acting and writing, to make more films … They pull me out of the details and show me the big picture.
