After talking to my nephew at USC film school, we are going back to making a short and then work on what looks like a feature length film.
The good news about this is that a short film is a lot easier to edit and we will deliver a film sooner.
I had to fly out to Wisconsin for over a week for work and had the Zero South Dec 20 push as well as the holidays. So I'm behind on editing and I apologize. When I setup the project I didn't expect to get such good footage and therefore didn't think it would take me as long to edit.
That said I've closed 2 projects and work is calm so going get back into it. The movie looks like it will be significantly longer than I expected. After reviewing the footage, doing first cuts, setting up new story boards, and remembering that this is a documentary not a race video and my goal is to get the audience to share the experience of being a blind or deaf person under extraordinary circumstances and entertain.
Thank you and anyone in the San Diego area that would like to help with editing please get a hold of us!
Getting really good results matching the colors between cameras. I was worried because the Black Magic camera's footage was much less shiny than the other cameras. Which is usually a really good thing, but I suffer from shiny object syndrome :)
The important thing is that we know can now easily match the footage to whatever camera / mood level we want for the final cut.
