So, it took a long time to complete the final fragment – Toronto Intermission. It was a lot more elaborate project than the previous two pieces – with fast paced editing and many scenes happening at the same time and cross-cutting into each other. Thanks to my sound editor – Konrad – who took the tedious task of making the sound flow.
It is always difficult with the last pieces and bits. I feel I can always do more or improve on something. At the same time, I think I think I had closure in terms of its substance in August when I completed the picture editing. Some of the lighting and colours are still off. But after a long delay of waiting to show it, I screened it to the long awaiting audience who have been waiting to find out how it all ends, and how it all begins. Wait! What does that mean? (i used the word wait a billion times in this paragraph)
I don’t know if the final fragment will give answers you might be looking for. But it is finished.
Now I have to put the three pieces together into a single video file.
Like my previous two screenings, it was fun to show the audience once again how to make an origami boat. Everybody is always so engaged and enthusiastic. I would have very much like to teach how to make an origami bird, but folding steps for the crane are too complex. So instead, an origami boat is an easier example.
