Yesterday, after eleven weeks and a few days of editing, we screened version 13 of the film, which was quite an event. I strongly felt that this is the one – the structure and balance we are after, the story lines we want to expose, the way Sujeylin takes our hand and leads us through the plot… I was elated after seeing it. And yet, we’ll have a few more weeks of editing to do before we can “lock” the picture on the feature version of the film. After that we do a sound mix and colour correction, and after that we start work on the one hour version for television.
Nevertheless, like a few other moments in the making of this film, yesterday was one to remember.
