Procrastination was unavoidable during the first couple of weeks after finishing production on ‘MUTE’, but as I mentioned in our last blog post, it served a purpose. I’d originally planned to have a week off and then start the rough cut of ‘MUTE’, but life got in the way. I’ve been playing catch up with the rough cut since, and I’m now ahead of schedule. The procrastination has been of value though. I’ve been reading a lot more, discussing future ideas with regular collaborators, including Nathan T.Dean, whose work I recommend everyone check out. In short, the time has reinvigorated me. I’ll get back to what the procrastination led to shortly, but more importantly, I’ve reached the half way point of the rough cut and I’m very pleased with it (something that doesn’t happen with rough cuts at all). It’s been as surreal editing scenes with no dialogue as it was shooting them though.
