Just a quick update. Over the winter, I completed the paring down of 15 or so hours of interviews into a 1.5 hour “rough cut.” Prairie Public’s Bob Dambach and Barb Gravel reviewed that rough cut with me in late January and noted what needs to be worked on for the next draft. A friend of mine, Brian Jackson, has been helping me whittle and craft the interviews and narration into a more succinct story without leaving out too many of the good parts. The process of editing is fun, challenging, frustrating, and everything in between. Though things are moving right along, we will not be able to have it finished in May 2013 like we had projected last year. The best bet we have right now is a late fall/early winter 2013 release. I wish that we were able to have it done now, but I hope the extra time we spend on it will be worth it. I’ll keep you in the loop in the meantime!
In this photo, Brian Jackson and I are putting our heads together for the second draft.
