Rough Cut Days
For me, looking at a rough cut of your own project is mentally one of the hardest things. I always work really hard on pre-production and production, so when I sit down at the editing bay I hope that everything will come together perfectly. Then you realize that everything isn’t exactly as how you imagined. It is a up and down roller coaster of emotion. However I just try to stay on track, what always helps me is a great quote by legendary filmmaker Martin Scorsese: “If you don’t get physically ill seeing your first rough cut then something’s wrong.”
At the end of the day I always tell myself to try my hardest and love the craft. Whenever I get into that mindset I feel that everything will work itself out and it makes me happy with what I accomplished.
