Drew here. It’s week 10 of our 12 week push to finish this film (and raise the funds for it) to apply to the Sundance Film Festival.
Christine and I were discussing how things were going this morning. I was unusually calm about how much more work was needed at this stage, saying way too self assuredly – “It’s cool though, ’cause you can submit to Sundance without having fully completed color correction and audio mixing.”
“Is that true?”
“Is that… What? YOU told me that!”
“Oh… well… there’s another thing I haven’t told you yet. There’s a late submission deadline date at the end of September. You just have to pay a late fee.”
“… Are you serious? Why wouldn’t you tell me that?”
“Because you wouldn’t have gotten all of this done if you knew you had almost another full month.”
“I… yeah, you’re right. I still have so much more to do though.”
“What are you going to do with all that extra time?”
“I’m going to George Lucas the hell out of this thing! I’m going to get Jabba the Hutt in there somewhere, Greedo is going to shoot first – it’s going to be awesome!”
“…That doesn’t make any f*cking sense, Drew.”
“I’M SO TIRED CHRISTINE.”
Then I passed out. True story.
