First Rough Cut done.
So last night I reached an awesome fantastic milestone. The first cut of the film was finished, and screener DVD's were made to show to the people who are going to be fresh eyes on this movie.
For me, first cut means the following. The entire movie runs from start to finish, with only a couple exceptions. There is one 70 second animated sequence which still has to be made, and the credits have yet to be assembled. In addition, color correction is still wanting, as is sound editing. The reason for this is because each of these processes take a long time to complete, and it's best to only do it once, with a film you intend to finally produce, rather than several times for cuts of the film that only one or two people will ever see.
The current running time of the film is approximately 75 minutes. This is much higher than my original target of 40 to 45 minutes. Now the film will probably lose about a couple minutes when fine tune editing is done, so I expect it to run around 70 minutes when it's finally released on the internet. I'm super excited! In addition, I will be working on one more trailer to be released in the next couple weeks, so keep an eye out for that.
