27 October. And you thought it was glamorous making a movie! yea? Ask my students who are undergoing the grind! They have shot the footage, no doubt. But THEY THEMSELVES have to watch that footage – all of it, and then decides, which part of it (and what percentage!) should be seen by others!
Well, they have begun editing the footage: to begin with they logged it – a massive task. And then assembly. If they could complete real editing with sound, by tomorrow evening, it would be great.
To everyone’s amazement, some have decided to make the Dept of Journalism their REST ROOM, tonight, till it dawns! They have a definite task at hand, a goad to achieve.
