Log log log log. It’s not making for much weblog weblog weblog weblog, though. After 1) a powerbook, 2) an external drive, 3) a new charger/AC cable for the camera, 4) a new Firewire connector for same, 5) a Firewire hub, 6) Final Cut Pro software, and 7) the FCP for Idiots manual, I’ve been logging in and capturing media (i.e., video and audio) at an increasingly rapid pace.
As of this evening, half the tapes have been done, taking up slightly less than half the space on my new hard drive. I’m much more selective of what gets captured from the third tape on, I notice; even though I log nearly every shot, I’m only taking the ones I really want to try using (emphasis on the really). That means there’s a huge pile of driving shots from the first tape I did that won’t get used. Live and learn. While the Mac captures video, I search for music on my PC. Thomas Tallis’ 40-part motet, Spem in Alium, is a candidate now; I wrote about it around the genesis of the project, and it was on exibit in NYC in November, when the script takes place.
Meeting with an editor/artist friend tomorrow to discuss next steps. Will keep the posting posted. Meeting with a branding friend Monday to discuss press kits, posters, video/DVD’s, website, etc.
