Girlfriend 19 is making excellent progress and I am very pleased with the results. Naively, I initially thought the film would be completed sooner, but I forgot about the Fast-Good-Cheap triangle!
Like many things, a film cannot be made fast, good, AND cheap; you ultimately need to pick two sides of the triangle. So if you want your film to be done fast and for cheap, then it’s probably not going to be good.
The budget for Gilfriend 19 is relatively tiny, thus, people are either volunteering their time or working on the cheap. And, of course, I want my film to be good, so there is no way my film will be done fast. It’s going to take time; a lot longer than I expected. As a result, I unfortunately will miss deadlines for the Fall film festivals; however, our film will undoubtedly be ready to submit to the Winter/Spring festivals.
Our editing is completely finished, but we are still working on the score (music) and the sound design. These elements are extremely important for any film and to rush through them is a major mistake. And from what I’ve heard so far, it’s definitely worth the wait!
Thank you for your continued support and anticipation for Girlfriend 19. I’ll have some cool stuff to share soon, so please stay-tuned and if you haven’t done so, subscribe to this blog via email for instant, easy updates!
