Our first day of shooting was almost two weeks ago, our second, ten days. Most videos of this length (16+ minutes) take months to edit (I don't know why). I feel like it is taking an AGE for me. I hate wasting time, and I'm not, but two weeks seems like forever. Given, a lot of the time has been spent waiting for things to render and upload (hours and hours), but still.
The first video I uploaded was viewed by my DP, Mike Paletta, who was actually quite pleased, although he has issues with the technical limitations of the iPad. My dear friend, TJ Glenn, who also provided the voice of the Usher, had some wonderful suggestions, which I have implemented. I'm uploading a lower res version for Mike, TJ and Tosca to look at (don't worry, Tosca, your full name will be in the closing credits!). I have put in some music, and some sound effects that make the episode even more surreal than it already is. I have also employed the services of John Drake and The Temporal Symposia for the scoring. (That's just me and Garage band).
I'm pretty sure that the episode will be up by Monday. Uploading a 1080 version took SOOOOOOO long that I cancelled it (I started it at night, and when I went back the next morning, it still had 1000 minutes to go; must have been some kind of glitch, 'cause it had 1000 minutes to go when I went to bed). I think I'll just do a 720 version, like the first two eps, and wait to do 1080 for when I have a faster internet connection.
