DVD Building

Stacy and I have been putting together the final DVD for our student screening on Saturday. Why in the world can't this be an easy task? Why must it be slow and tear out your hair torture?

I'm not friends with the technical side of film. I like to find paintings, movie clips and talk color palettes and tone. I like to talk to actors about motivation. I like to workshop scripts. I like to think about music cues. But I do not and will never ever ever ever love to talk or learn about bit rates, compression, rendering, gigabytes ...

So I sit here in the mac lab and wait and wait for the build, the encoding, the formatting and cross my fingers super duper tight that the movies will show up on a screen when I'm done.
