They say the final stretch requires the most effort, or at least feels that way. And while that's true, it's also true that it's rewarding to see all the good work everyone did in the footage.

The plan is to have a good rough cut ready in about two weeks, then work with our new editor, Matt Levy, who I was introduced to by the one and only Zach Wigon. His film The Heart Machine just had its NYC premiere - check it out!
