Girlfriend 19 Editing Underway!

14 Dec

Whenever my friends and family express their desire to watch Girlfriend 19 once it’s ready, I chuckle because I’m personally dying to watch it!  LOL

Girlfriend 19 is going to be an unconventional film in many ways, so it’s hard to imagine what the finished film will be like.  The truth is that I designed it that way.  Rather than follow hard-and-fast narrative and stylistic rules, I wrote and directed Girlfriend 19 in a much more visceral and instinctive manner.

Editing the film will no different, which is why I am so thrilled Jarrod Burt and John Patrick Nelson are my editors.  They work as a team and recently edited the feature film, Grey Skies, which has been doing very well in the film festival world.  Besides being immensely talented, Jarrod and John are downright honest and good-spirited.

I’ll be working loosely with Jarrod and John during the first edit of the film.  In essence, they will work on their own while I periodically check-in and give feedback.  Once the first overall edit is complete, we will then watch the film together and collaboratively determine any necessary changes.  I may also ask a few trusted friends and colleagues for feedback after the first edit as well.

I will definitely post some photos of Jarrod and John in action and, perhaps, I may be able to post some clips/scenes from the film.  I’m just a bit wary of giving away too much and ruining the film!

    I don’t really like romantic movies, especially with such a plot with ex coming back. It’s probably because I still love someone madly although it’s over quite a long ago. It gives me a lot of pain.

    Still, I will watch Girlfriend 19 just because I found you on the web , reading you and commenting here. Good luck! Hope you’ll come up with something rocking! :)

      Thank you for the comment, Sajib! I agree with you, relational dramas are not always the best movies to watch because they come too close to home at times!

      I sure hope you’ll enjoy my film when the time comes!
