Film Cuts

My committee is giving me incredible feedback on my film-in-progress. One aspect that needed immediate addressing was the editing. They noticed the film was following typical first-time filmmaking mistakes – unnecessarily drawn out shots. I made the appropriate changes and actually trimmed out about 40 seconds! It sounds like I scooped out a tremendous amount of footage, but in reality – the cut made things concise without taking anything away from story. This is definitely an example of when less is truly more.
