i have 5 scenes in my movie. 3 scenes are fully edited, 1 scene just needs some tweaking, and 1 scene is still pretty rough.
once i finish the cut, there’s still a lot of work left to do. my life is consumed by never ending to do lists, so here’s another one.
i have to create an insert shot of some mail and you have to be able to read the names on the envelopes. i didn’t have a macro lens on the shoot, so i plan to take still photos and import them into final cut.
create some graphics in photoshop and do some compositing.
a couple shots have the boom mic dip in, and one shot has a light stand in the frame. i need to photoshop those things out.
create an opening title sequence. right now i’m thinking of showing a map that the main character uses in the opening scene. i think it will help set up the story and hopefully establish the tone.
sound design. it’s set in an office, so i need to find office sound effects like typing, copy machines, fax machines, etc.
the dialogue editor will fix all the dialogue. he’s already started on some of the scenes and there’s a big difference in quality compared to what was originally recorded.
the composer has to score the music.
i hope i can get all of this done in 2 weeks so i can send it off to the contest. i can refine things for festival submissions later at a more leisurely pace.
