Editing the Film

I've just got back from the second editing day, round at Gina's.
The film is starting to come together; it feels as though I should say 'naturally' but the interviewing and logging and loading and discussing takes a lot of time and concentration.
You start to inhabit the world of the interviewees. Have we used this already, or have we just watched it 15 times?
We break off to chat. We get annoyed all over again with things that went on back then.
Our punk was so much better than that black-jackety leather rock man thing. It was technicolour, it was pioneering, it was eccentric, it was brattish, it spilled into reggae and back out again.
Oh the stories! Just wait till you see it!
