"Five-Three Charlie" Premiere


What a weekend.

On Friday, myself, along with a few good friends, premiered a short documentary we had been working on for some time now.

Despite the stress of everything (which, I have to admit, I wasn't feeling as much as my fellow filmmakers, Jack and James Savage), which included a broken projector at the last minute,  popcorn problems (I almost had to pick up my microwave and take it to the venue and get popping), and some last minute edits, things couldn't have gone better.

It's one of the few big projects I'm genuinely proud of, and it only makes me more excited for the future.

I have to admit something - I have a pretty bad habit of second guessing everything I do, and I'm pretty self-critical about my work. My role in this project was mixing the audio, and there were many times I considered letting Jack and James know that they could hire a professional if they wanted. I was not confident in my work, and that's a character trait I've noticed for quite some time now.

With the success of this project -- especially given my immense fear of failure from the very beginning, I'm more confident in my work. I still recognize I've got a lot of improving to do, but it's good to know that I can improve.

Anyways. I'll let you know when we're showing the film again. We hope you can make it!
