ON THE RIGHT TRACK

Now that Barbara has adamantly looked into what is for her the essence of each scene and I too – in spite of a little heart ache once in a while – did my very best, we’ve managed to create a less epic version of the film: 2 hours and 15 minutes – We are on the right track now!

EDITING ROOM GOES YOGA

Admittedly, a little bit of stress is now adding to the atmosphere of the editing room. In order to nip tensions in the bud, Barbara has decided for us to do ten Sun-greetings each, every time a controversy or a creative (respectively personal) crisis threatens to arise. To my regret even Surya Namaskara B. The floor in the editing room in fact doesn’t exactly look inviting, but a little bit of dirt once in a while is supposed to strengthen the immune system. Everything for the art!

NOOOO ?!?! :-(

Haha! Shorten everything? I’m dying right now. Where am I gonna start? What can we throw out, cut out, kill? – And then, I love my scenes so much. Every little frame I love!!! Aaaaaahhhh,,,,,!!!!

3.5 hours EPOS

Yesterday we, that is Barbara, Constanze and me, made it through the 3.5-hour-epic. After we went on our last legs from Barbara’s living room into the kitchen, we first of all had to overcome the shock. Then, of course, came the inevitable decision: First and foremost the film has to be reduced to a reasonable lengh.

DONE?!?

Finally all the scenes have been cut. Actually, most of them are fine, but still too long. Barbara and Constanze suggested to string them all together in order to see if the film works. I’m not so sure if that’s a good idea.
