This week has been largely devoted to my film but I also spent a bit of time on my Reflective Essay. I find I have many ideas, and they change from week to week. But my general thinking is that I want to talk first about the research side of the project – the history, and then to theorize the film-making side of the project.
The film is relatively complete, but I am going to take some time away from it now. I think I need to have some distance from it, so that I can approach it with new (-ish) eyes. I will go in again next week to finalize it. I also want to create a trailer, since that seems to be what the Montreal International Film Festival wants. Ultimately, I am going to be about 2 weeks ahead of schedule on the film part of the project (relative to my work plan) but I needed to do that since the edit suites close for use on April 10. And this will allow me time to work on my Reflective Essay (and another Take-home Exam.)
