Me Am Gud Movee Makur

Want to know how long I spent doing work for my film class today?

Take a guess. I'll give you a few seconds.

Okay, ready?


We got to the hotel and started setting up at 2:30 PM, and then we shot until 3:30 AM (I also did some editing on my laptop in between scenes). I then came home and worked for another 2 hours to finish editing the 21 minute rough cut that we're showing in class in...4 hours! Fun!

Sometimes, I really hate to love filmmaking. But at the same time, I'm on such a ridiculous natural high right now from the combination of last-minute editing and the fact that I'm still getting along with my group (including the previously mentioned female co-star, although I'm probably blowing that out of proportion simply because I'm not used to girls even acknowledging my existence, let alone sitting an inch away from me on a hotel couch and watching me edit...oh, hi, don't mind me; I'm just CD's old friend, False Hope) that I don't think I'll even be able to sleep.

In any case, one thing is certain:

This is the best film I have ever worked on. EVER.

UPDATE (1:00 PM)
Sweet, sweet validation. Out of the four projects being made in this class, my group's looks the best by a huge margin (it was especially great because ours was screened right after a horrible, horrible film that's essentially a dude walking down the street for 15 minutes). Acting, shooting, lighting, sound, writing...everything is better than the others. I even got some compliments specifically on my editing. Hooray for me.

Now, if only the awesomeness of this wasn't being ruined by the fact that I have a history paper to write today...fuck liberal arts.
