"The Shoot": Your humble scribe hastens to thank you all for the many valuable contributions that made it possible
for our Club to get Blueberries' in the can.' Too bad the clock ran out on us so that we didn't view the may test your patience
Special thanks to Margaret and Len Blueberry, to Stan sprocket, to Eleanor Properties, to Mike (Fingers) Locksmith and
to the many assistant directors among the audience.
I'm sure that all of us must have been impressed with the contributions from those watching the table monitor, picking
out "distractions", errors in continuity, creating alternative ways of taking shots, evaluating performances of our illustrious
cast and cameraman, etc.
"The Editing" Mike, it was kind of you to offer to handle the making of "dubs' for those of us who wanted to take
a swing at editing. Many thanks, dude!
Maybe -now, not meant to be a deadline cast in stone - at the June Meeting, maybe we could first view the "Rushes" and
then the edits made "so far" The production length doesn't have to be restricted to under 60 seconds and, for the June Meeting,
you don't have to have the music and all the transitions and effects plugged in. OK if you do get so far along, though.
As many of us know, (to our chagrin), we congratulate ourselves, just having completed the production, only later, in
a couple of weeks time, to find we're "not so happy" with the pacing, the continuity, or the compression Dang! Now the music
doesn't fit any more.
Remember, unless you prefer otherwise, please feel free to bring your edit along in June -ain't no contest rules, ain't
no contest, neither. (Plenty of double negatives, though.) And feel free to make up your own title. Suggested Ender: Production:
by Victoria Video Club, 2003. Editing: Edna Breckenridge. For example.
