Out of the Living-Room and Into the Fire

Leaving town is a frightening proposition. I realize that part of the reason that I've been mentally unstable lately is that I'm focusing much of my energy on the idea of getting Anniversary Present finished before I leave. But unfortunately in reality I'm mostly in a holding pattern and have been spending very little actual time on the last stages of the film's post production.

So I was very pleasantly surprised when I got to the spotting session for the sound mix and found out that my sound team had been putting in tons of effort and time to layer the film with an incredibly rich sound pallet. This is a very good sign, because I now realize that I have only six weeks before wheels up on our round-the-world trip and I still have to do the final sound mix, the Digital Intermediate (+ lab/print work), and then online my 6 minute television cut down for Bravo. In that same space of time, Sierra and I also have to go on a two week tour of Canada (Toronto - Winnipeg - Calgary - Halifax) for an elaborate corporate shoot—not to mention packing up our apartment and moving all our possessions to my folk's place in Halifax, finishing my corporate taxes for the year, online editing 2 spec commercials, and finalizing round-the-world tickets, visas, etc—so needless to say, time is getting short and the panic has fully set in.

panic, or fear, as Charles Bukowski once said, can be an incredible motivator
