It takes time.

Yesterday I posted about working on the short film.  It's hard for some people to understand the amount of time that goes into filming.  Dandelions will be about ten minutes in length, yet it took hours of pre-production meetings, auditions, gathering of crew and equipment, and about 12 hours of filming.  That's not counting the editing, creating a soundtrack, and finalizing of the project.

While I was in school, the documentary I made for my beginning production class took me about 40 hours to edit. That doesn't count driving to Idaho and filming for a day.  Titled A Shear Gem, it runs less than six minutes.  

I think of what Mark Twain said, "If I'd had more time, I'd have written a shorter letter."

Quality, and filming, takes time.



I shared this last year, but just for fun, here's my documentary short again:
