Postproduction Workshop

Sometimes it seems like most of the movie happens in post-production. When we were filming on the set, it was cool, but it wasn't movie magic. I was actually a little skeptical that it would come together. But then we heard about post-production.
We went to one of the schools that will be using our software and had our movies editor walk us all through the basics of editing. We were all watching on a projector as he put together a few sequences and showed us how it all should be organized. It was really informative, but I was so tired I fell asleep for a bit.
From there we went to the sound studios that created all the post productions sound on all the Bourne movies, all the Ridley Scott movies for the past ten years, and a lot of others. It's my understanding that it's the best. We talked to the sound supervisor there for a while, and she told us all about the business.
We went from there to the Universal Walkway. Everybody wanted to see the Bourne Ultimatum, especially after talking so much with the sound supervisor, But I've already seen it. I should have gone again, but instead just kinda walked around for too long. We got dinner at the Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. Jamal and I were going to go bowling, but the lanes sold out right before we got there. I got a characature drawn for too much money, mostly out of boredom.
Then we went back to the hotel. I'm getting exceptionally sleepy, more so as the week progresses. I'm going to sleep when I get back to Utah.
And I'll give you the update on today...tomorrow.
