Production Update – Weeks 5 & 6

9 Apr

Now that CouchBoat productions has nearly exclusively moved into post-production mode, more and more time is being spent, editing and sifting through our hours of footage, in the couchboat that spawned this fabulous production company.

These past two weeks were spent compiling a tentative paper edit for the documentary, and creating the first rough cut. We were surprised as to some of the creative turns that the rough cut took. We suppose such lightbulbs only go on when you see the footage in front of you and have it all lined up in Final Cut. In short, the rough cut is very different from the version we planned out in the paper edit, but we’re very pleased with the cut’s story line and aesthetics. We’re excited to screen the rough cut and get feedback from our peers, and we’re doubly excited that we have about a month to iron out the documentary’s wrinkles and make it as pretty as possible!

This week will bring one final shoot, in which we will conduct a sort of retrospective interview with Bo, and do one or two more interviews with her Modern Dance II students, who have all been so kind as to let us intrude on their dance space with our camera equipment and endless questions.
