Editing sesson #3
Thursday night was my third editing session with Rob for "Changing Lane." We watched the film, and it was very exciting to realize that we had very few notes about the cut. We played with the timing of music, traded out the trumpet Superman march for a smaller, flute Superman theme, and then started working on the end credits. Rob had already color-corrected the film, so we tried to come up with something fun for the credits. An initial idea of a "comic book style" didn't pan out so well, but eventually Rob found a text style that would mirror the opening titles from the 1978 Superman movie. Putting them under the Superman theme, it was cool beyond words to see our names flying across the screen to that music. When I had to leave, Rob was working on the flying titles for the introductions of the actors. We said that they needed to be something that would be cooler than the flying text from Superman: The Movie, and Rob is working on something that certainly promises to deliver. I won't say any more about it, so as not to ruin the surprise effect from it, but it is easily going to be one of the coolest things ever.
