Trains

This week has brought me to the caboose of the film. Crafting the ending is probably going to be a lot harder than I first envisioned. It's already gone through several on-paper-drafts, so I can only imagine what my imagination is going to settle on in the editing bay. Here's hoping for something cool!

I continually am trying to immerse myself in the flow of the film, which means lining up all the little segments and watching them in a row-- the way you will, if I ever finish this thing. Inevitably I watch the sequence chanting "big picture, big picture, big picture," but I keep getting hung up on the details. Try as I might to persuade myself otherwise, I more-often-than-not talk myself into just "adjusting" one or two things here and there...and then half a day goes by. Oops.

Today has gone well so far though! Yahoo! A little like the runners, I'm finding myself emmulating the Little Engine That Could...

I think I can.
