E=energy D=drive I=illusionist T=tenacious....EDIT

Ya, all those things! And then multiply that by one hundred and you are in the editing world of a Fugue/Indie Filmmaker! I am in the "Weeds" in terms of trying to finish this film. You write the script, shoot it then edit. Then you realize it's just not working, and you pull out the camera and shoot scenes to "fill the holes." Don't beat yourself up, as it's part of the process. If it was easy, everybody would be making feature films. However, in the grand scheme of things, it's not that big of a deal, so relax and enjoy the challenge! Don't take yourself so serious shirtless film boy, and go finish your film, DWEEB! haha..love, jd
