Since I returned from the awesome Robot Heart Stories road trip, I have successfully transitioned the editing of As The Dust from my laptop back to my desktop. I have turned off my phone, and have been nearly completely off the internet. I have been editing solid 15-18 hours a day. Since this project has consumed my life pretty thoroughly for several years, I am really interested in getting it finished as soon as I can, so that I can be spending my time doing the things I want to be doing. Like launching some free-energy devices, traveling the world, or organic gardening, etc.
It can get pretty lonely editing non-stop all day long with no distractions. But in mid November, I had visitors! Jamie and Kieran stopped in LA on their road trip. It was great seeing them. I continue to post updates on SIMILO, on our kickstarter page. UYUNI has now been in over 55 film festivals, so that’s exciting. Every so often I do get outside to continue the backyard gardening master plan, which includes adding a bunch of steps.
Soon I will have an assembly edit of the film, then I can focus on getting that edited into a rough cut. Every time I think about it, I start to cry. For the most part, I have been utterly alone in this feat, I have had to rely on my personal strength with no shoulder to cry on. I gave my word that I would finish it, so that’s the plan. Get it done. Soon I can share a new teaser for the documentary.
