ILY: Nearing the end

Journal entries with ILY in the titles are about the short screen musical
now in post-production.

I love this film.

And I'm really sick of it.

I'm done working on the audio. If we're lucky, there will be a final polish mix in L.A. while we're there for CREDO.

I'm almost done working on the picture. There are some fixes to be done (wire removal, label greeking--which means means removal of a recognizable trademark--and stuff like that), but I'm getting competitive bids for them now. After removing light stands from CREDO one frame at a time in Photoshop, I don't need the experience again.

Once the audio is locked and the picture fixes are delivered, I'll put it all together, make half a dozen edits to remove about 30 seconds from the total running time, and...

It'll be done.

I'm kind of weirded out by that. I don't think there's been a day in the last year when I haven't worked on this film. I took it with me on vacation and worked while the boys napped. Every night I sing them their goodnight song around 8:30, walk into the living room, power up the computer, and stay up until... well, it's 1:29 AM now, and I'm still working on it. I don't read books. I don't watch movies. I work on ILY.

Well, that's not true. Kathleen and I watched COLUMBO together a few nights ago. It was nice. I still feel guilty.

As Dave the Pie Doctor observed in my comments area some time ago, I can't half-ass a project. I immerse. I've been immersed in this thing so long now that I can't really conceive of the alternative.

I shipped off the last of the artwork for a different DVD this evening: The promotional "business card" DVDs that I'll have on hand in L.A., which are geared toward getting CUPID & PSYCHE made. They contain CREDO in its entirety, the trailer of I LOVE YOU, I'M SORRY, AND I'LL NEVER DO IT AGAIN, information about the feature project, and information about me. Yeah, I remember now... I'm working toward a bigger project that will take over my life for even longer.

As oncoming trains go, that's a good one to get run over by.

See a few of you in Hollywood, I hope.
