Then Comes Editing The Bicyclists

We're well into editing The Bicyclists - somewhere past Act One and into Act Two. I wrote it, directed it and shot most of The Bicyclists so I am well acquainted with the footage. After the initial logging and organizing of the footage it's been a pretty straight forward process, although I feel like celebrating after every scene is complete.

I'm concentrating on the visuals and making sure I have all those elements in place. I edit the sound as needed, but will concentrate on that and polishing the film after I get this first cut done. I keep looking at the script and comparing it to the timeline to see how close what I wrote compares to the length of the film. The rule of thumb is that one page of script equals one minute of scene time. They're close so far, so the pacing I envisioned when I wrote the script is matching the finished film. That may mean nothing if it drags or goes too fast for the audience even if it's in lock step with the script.

What's more interesting to me is watching a world unfold before me: the cadence of the story, the look I've chosen for the film and the characters that populate it. I've been pleasantly surprised by what I've edited so far and still find my self nervous before I edit each scene: Did I shoot enough? Did I choose the right angle? Did I direct the actors into the right performance?

I guess I'll find out soon enough.
