Written as part of a production diary in June 2002.
My Avid came in today and is hooked up and working beautifully. Branden is in town picking up a sound system that is sufficient for audio design. I am looking forward (but also a little nervous) of what he decides to pick up. He likes to go for the best and I’m on a budget here. We’ll see. He’ll be on that 2:45.
B&H took their time shipping it and after several months of wanting to start the editing this darn movie I have finally been able to digitize all of the footage and start assembling it. It looks great. I suppose being able to pay for this machine is about the only good thing to come out of going back to work at The Spar. I plan on seeing if I can also hold my premiere screening there, since everyone insists getting the VFW to loan me the space for free isn’t going to happen. The Spar however, is far more like scenario as I can pitch it in the context of bringing in customers who wouldn’t otherwise come to the restaurant. We’ll see what happens.
Hero For A Day is now available on DVD via Amazon.com, and includes two versions of the film, the original 2002 cut that premiered at the now defunct Spar Restaurant and the 2009 re-edit with a new score and sound design.
