This blog started with the proud announcement that the documentary “American Dumpling” was almost finished. Another word of advice, one which I am certain everyone is thinking, “oh that poor girl – this is film 101, and she thinks she is giving the advice. Lost soul, that one.”
Well, I do know better than to do, think, say , breathe or hiccup that we are ‘almost finished’ – it is asking for trouble. I will not bore anyone with the personal details of why it took three months to finish a three minute cue, but guess what?
It is finished, approved, and the first pass of 5m1 has been completed. I have a sudden cross-eyed determination to have this film completed in the next thirty days.
Would anyone like to place bets? Bring ’em on!
