Spent the weekend looking at footage and thinking about the structure. I could cut something really easy and straight-forward. I could make an entire TV documentary about Ken. But there is something bigger in the footage. Ken is definitely the key to it all as the main theme is about reinvention, and we see Ken totally reinvent himself during the course of the film. But, I still haven't been able to get at it. I'm sure that if I keep looking at the footage, something will reveal itself.
Have a meeting on Thursday with Jamie. He's an editor that Ross hooked me up with. Maybe he's got some suggestions. Just don't know.
I feel really alone at the moment. I mean, I've got a lot of great people around me supporting me, but I still feel this great weight of responsibility for the film. I wish I could share some of the weight with a producer and an editor.
Spoke with Richard yesterday about the contract with £$%^ Films. He's supposed to have everything done by the end of this week. Then I send it over to them. We'll see how it goes, but maybe I will have a producer soon.
