First draft came in at a whopping 13 minutes, by far the longest overrun of my movie making career so far. Managed to edit the second draft down to a more respectable 5 minutes, and the third a creditable 4 minutes. So only about a minute to lose when I reshoot for final assembly.
Not looking forward to the post production on this one. Will probably take as long to get the SFX right – not that they’re whizz-bang – as writing and shooting the script. Which, in my opinion, is no way to live!
