It is my last day in Ypenburg and I am very satisfied with the things that happened during my visit. I always thinking about the question, how to make the evolution of the strandbeesten visible. And perhaps I find a way to show it in my film.
When I am back in Germany I want to start editing. There is so much material and I have to try to find a first structure for some sequences.
I want to buy a MacBook for looking at the material and make some rough cuts. Then I have to find a way to put the footage on an Avid to share my work with Stefan.
In London we started with a Sony HDV, because it was not possible to get a workflow for such an amount of data for the DVCPRO HD P2-system. I think I want to go on with the P2 system because I am very gald with it.
The only problem is the data storage. I had to work for 1.5 hours in the night to burn the data on a DVD. Sometimes it would have been nicer to go to bed without sitting on computer for 1.5 hours, but this was not too bad.
My plan is to come back in January and I deeply hope that there will be some snow on the hill. Not very often there is snow in the Netherlands, but I know we will have snow in January.
I don't know if anybody took the opportunity to look at me during my filming inside the cabin and I don't know if there ever was another documentary film where you have been able to see a live "making of", but if anybody see me on Theos webcam I am curious about his or her opinions.
I am happy to go back in the evening and I am looking forward to come back again.
