Handycat Talks

February 1st, 2006

Brian and I arrived back in Indianapolis the day after we recorded the track. Although it was late, I drove by the studio to listened to the some of the raw tracks. I was very pleased. I knew of course, that the track was going to come out long – but I wouldn’t be for sure by how much until after the first edit. We wanted the cut dialogue to run no longer than five minutes. Even though Handycat performs a lot of the action while he’s talking, there still needs to be enough time for the other screen business. When I got home that night, my built-in “focus group�? – three daughters ages 6 to 11 – and my wife Natalie wanted to know how it all went. “It went great!�? I declared, but was actually thinking, “I’ll really know better after I cut the track.�?

The next day, I put the “scissors�? to it and the track came in about five and a half minutes. That’s good, but not good enough. My scissors were still poised - more had to go. We decided to hold off on further track cutting until we built the animatic.
