In movie news, I spent much of this weekend going through footage. I mentioned this in a previous post but it's very interesting how things have changed in terms of the story we're telling in this film. Things that felt important in the moment, that I looked back on thinking "that's it! That's the low point of the film," aren't anywhere close to the low point or the miss the mark on what we're trying to say. Every day I dig into this film I feel like I know the story I want to tell, and every scene challenges me to stick to that feeling or take another look at what I'm trying to say. It's this struggle and change that I know will make this film better.
