Right now, I'm heavy into editing "Wet Cotton," my thesis video. It's due this upcoming Monday.

It is - by far - the most difficult thing I've had to edit. Not so much in technical terms. In fact, since I used a shotgun mic for all the sound and a lot of it is shot in long-takes, it is fairly easy to edit on a technical level.

No... what I'm having the most difficulty with is tone. Man alive. I don't know how to keep it movin' from scene to scene or mood to mood. Transitions are a headache. And as for overall atmosphere... I'm really struggling.

But it's getting better with each new revision. So that's always good.

Eh. I better get back to work.
