I spent the last 3 months in hibernation to tie up my loose ends back in Toronto. And needless to say, there was a lot of ends to tie up, least of which was my film, Buck Wild.
I hit the ground running when I got back to TO, recut my film and assembled a slew of incredibly talented artists from around the world to help with the score of my film and turned out better than I anticipated. I had musicians from Ireland, New York, London, and allover Toronto working tirelessly so I can complete my project. And then having my sound mixer spend 3 sleepless nights to give me a final mix 2 days prior to my flight back to HK.
The plan was to have it all done before I got back here but as my luck would have it, my hard drive blew and I lost 1.5 TB of data. All of my previous work and current work all wiped out...and lucky me, it was at the best moment: a day before my flight and right when I was opening my editing program and about to place my final mix onto my timeline in to complete the film.
And because I'm so smrt, (yes, SMRT), I didn't back my stuff up. So I said bye to that after I spent the next 6 hours looking for a technician in the city to retrieve my data but when 3 of the 6 that knew what to do told me that they can't do anything to help me with the time restraint I gave them, I knew I was in for a long plane ride to HK.
So where now? Back to square one...brought my raw footage and ready to start again.
Life lesson: Back your SH*T up...so you don't hear the echoes of "I told you so"...from the people that told me so...
I'll be back to blog again but I thought I'd let y'all know that I AM BACK!!!
BTW I just shot a mini-doc, "Making of" for a TVB ad campaign...my first day was the day after I got back...holy jet-lag Batman...but I'll tell you more next time...
