Tomorrow’s the big day—but I almost completely forgot about another big event, one that was supposed to happen today. The release of Unsaid.
The film isn’t done, unfortunately. I missed the deadline. But I did open it back up and finalize the edit, then went through and color corrected it. Now it’s off to the sound guy, who will hopefully have a sound mix and music in the next day or so.
But then I tried to do the In Memoriam section of the film. Part of the Kickstarter campaign that funded the film was that at a certain donation level, contributors could get a mention of a loved one who has passed in the film’s credits. There are quite a few of them, with photos and small dedications.
I wanted to start the section off with Mom. After all, she’s the reason I wrote the story in the first place, and then the film. But going through her Facebook for photos of her was just too much. I dissolved, and became completely unable to work any more. Then, in an astonishing feat of mental ineptitude, I forgot that it was 4:30am and called Michelle to let her know the status of the film.
Once again it seems that there are certain wounds that have difficulty healing all the way.
