I’ve cut all of the scenes together and it seems that everything works! I mean that in the sense that the footage we have cuts together well and we won’t be needing anymore Pick Ups (apart from a shot of a train entering a station, which I can get on my own tomorrow). I’m happy with it all. So far it only comes to 17 minutes long; although I could do with stretching out the middle of the film more so that the relationship between the two characters is more believable.
A lot of filmmakers would be screaming at me for making such a long short film for the sake of those festivals and their strict rules on film length. But I don’t care, in the end a good film is all I need. If all I made is 5 minute films then how would I have a clue on how to keep people entertained for 90 minutes. This film will probably end up 20 minutes in length. I am still unsure what to do with it after it’s complete I will try festivals and see how that goes first.
