Absolutely Not Your Monkey

Blogger’s been moving this account over to their new and improved system, so I haven’t been able to post until now. I wouldn’t have had time the past few days in any case, as I’ve been too busy getting Episode 5 ready to send off to the exec producers in time for the premiere on July 1. I spent the entire day yesterday at Darrell’s going through the music he had come up with, rearranging some, adjusting timing, and in some cases coming up with new music for certain sections. I got over there at around 11am, but we didn’t finish until almost 2 in the morning. I think it was time well spent, though. There’s a bit more action in this bit, and editing was even more difficult, but all in all I think it’s going to be good. All I need to do now is get the portable hard drive from Milifilm, download the episode from my computer, take it back and have them burn it onto a DVD for me to send off to Japan. Hopefully I’ll be able to get it out by tomorrow afternoon.

Episode 4 has been pretty well received, all in all, especially within the context of the Lady X project. When I got in to work today I found that some of my co-workers had seen the episode, logging in from the URL on the poster in my cubicle. The only problem most people have with it is the fight scene, but that was of course the biggest risk we took in the entire episode. I had hoped to avoid having to resort to the oft-used “Our actors don’t know martial arts so I’ll just shake the camera around and cut a lot” school of fight-scene editing, but it looks as if I was a bit too optimistic. I’ll re-work everything for the DVD version in any case. I think I might need some time off before I dive into that, though. Things have been rather stressful lately, on several fronts. My father was in the hospital and everyone in my family was nervous for awhile as they didn’t seem to know exactly what was wrong with him, including the amazingly incompetent doctor. He seems to be doing better now, though.
