IT – Chapter 2 premiere cinema
it’s a little known secret that I can edit. While I don’t actively sell myself as an editor, I actually enjoy it once in a while. Based on what I had created for Drissi and Warner Bros. on Godzilla King of the Monsters video, I was asked to cut together the It Chapter 2 video. As you can assume i shot most of the footage with a drone, there was some footage captured on sticks and handheld. This time we only had one day of shooting, albeit a long day and into the night, we had pretty good luck with weather. The initial assembly ‘only’ took the guys a better part of one day. (Godzilla took 4 days for comparison). Then the powers that be decided that the balloons looked a little naked and they wanted “more”, so they had a team put up banners on the following Wednesday morning. With the premier happening on Thursday night we had a very small window to shoot the dome with the added banners and assets and rush back to the office to complete the editing before Thursday morning. Thankfully Warner Bros. social team was happy with what I did and put it out in time to promote the premier. All and all I’d have to say this was a smashing success. I have to say having 100% creative control certainly give me a sense of gratification and a job well done!
