At our home in Duncanville (near Dallas) we spent the evening re-writing the copy for the narration for the trailer--and then recorded it. We've gone out on a limb, financially, for this project; Tim's gotten a new computer to do the editing at home and some new devices for the sound recording. Reading the words and hearing my own voice, I am so aware of the limits of my talent! I much prefer to do a character voice to narration. But--it sounds OK, and we will record more voices this weekend for another section of the film, specifically a section about race unity and Washington, D.C.
The energy in this home is definitely centered now on advancing this project--day and night. Going to work is a slight interruption. Sleep is curtailed; all avenues are pursued. Today I was talking to four young fashion students at the Art Institute about sewing some more costumes, as my machine is not working and I have so little time!
As I get ready to go to ABS in San Francisco and then to Green Acre three days later, I am worried about all we need to do. Finish the trailer, create and print a postcard, name the film. . . . But every day, there is progress. God willing, time and resources will be there, as we need them!
