Editing is done !

Like the golden spike at Promontory Point, Utah, the timeline ends have come together. I now have a 47-minute documentary that is quite watchable.

Now what?

-- Handoff to music.

-- I will work on sound effects while music is going on.

-- Two things that fit into locked-in places on the timeline:
Shot of completed new museum to follow the time-lapse.
(Just waiting for a sunny weekday)
"Bessey CT" street sign.
(Waiting for vendor to finish)

At that point it will be ready to show. DVD encoding and authoring to follow.

2 Minutes To Go

About two finished-minutes to go on editing. Leaving room for music pauses. Acquired Ernest H. Bessey (the grandson) picture (!!) and found a place to fit it. Waiting on (but won't block progress):

-- street sign prop
-- sunshine to shoot latest New Museum

Progress that will be done in parallel as soon as I'm done editing:

-- music
-- sound effects
-- intro talking head

"Fine" editing in progress

All 40 minutes or so all done. About 6 minutes to go. Going at the rate of about 2 minutes per 4-hour session.

Power-Up Shoot Completed

Finally, we (Johan Koning Sr, Ben Koning, and Dave Lyons) did the indoors radio power-up shoot.

The room looks like it's daylight; I lit it that way to match the exteriors shot a year ago: It was actually pitch black outside, but note the lighting illusion thru the windows. Several bright lights were pointed into the windows, standing outside in the pouring rain!
