Anxiously waiting to edit
BY LINDSEY BLACK, LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, USA - I decided to take a much needed break from life before I get buried in my computer. I am going to be here in L.A. helping out with the needy to get my mind off of me and onto people who really don't know their place in life. It has been great these last three days. I feel like L.A. is home to me, maybe because growing up those were my initials (Lindsey Anderson), or maybe it is the atmosphere. Most people don't get this giddy around a picture of a slate outside a Burbank movie theatre. Everywhere you go, you can find at least one person who is connected to the film industry one way or another. But is L.A./Hollywood really where I want to be? It is so corporate. The great thing about the an Indie film and its crew is you become family. It is easier to get to know each other and I respect the films more because you have to work so hard to come up with the finances.
I, of course, have been keeping an eye on the blog a lot. I can't wait to see what they have to write. I am so excited to see the footage. I am bumming a bit, especially when I see the pictures on the blog, but this getaway is helping me out a bit. I can certainly be thankful that I am not in Africa with one set of clothes on my back and some foriegn bug bites. There is not much I can blog about until I begin the edit, which I am anxiously waiting to get started on. I will definitely let you know the progress. Let's all hope we have no big issues (like dropping a laptop, like I already did) and get through this for the Sundance deadline. Stay strong crew!
