Endings, Day 5
Hard days. People are working hard for this film of mine, something that flatters me and also gives me a great sense of responsibility to make this work well. The actors are giving it their all. There's just so much to do every day -- it's hard to get it all done, the way I want to do it, in the time we have some days. Today was like that. It seemed like we were moving along at a good speed, bit we just seemed to bog down somewhere, and the day wore on longer than it should have.
Or maybe it didn't. Maybe we didn't bog down. Maybe we were just trying to do too much for one day. I'm not sure, really. We got good footage, so I'm not complaining.
The experience just reminds me how difficult and challenging it is to make a good film. People want it to happen, but circumstances don't.
This post reads like I'm disappointed or upset. Not true. Just reflective, possibly because it's so late (er, early). I probably just need some sleep...
