Editing and Technology and Vimeo, Oh My!

Thanks for sticking with us over the last few months!

We've been editing the episodes using a process that involves a number of step: first, lots of discussion about what material we have, what we think the thesis or argument of the chapter is, and then a potential narrative line. Second, Erin cuts together a rough draft over a week or so. Third,  Heather offers notes, and then Erin recuts the material.

This involves a lot of scheduling, both Erin and Heather are busy with other jobs, but also much technological support. Erin is in Utah and Heather is in Arizona.

Thank goodness for Google!

And once the chapter is posted, Heather still has many more notes for Erin.

We've had requests lately for the entire film on DVD. As you can imagine, this will involve more discussions and edits, as material, info, and images that are used in stand alone segments needs to be re-evaluated for a more cogent narrative.

Thanks for your support, as always, and wish us luck as we apply to film festivals.

  1. I appreciate receiving the update on your progress. How exciting it would be to have your film featured at a festival; Sundance seems a natural match. Best wishes!

    Agape always,
