I’ve been editing The Climb off and on since we shot the film in May. (I love Final Cut.)
You might say that it should have been finished long ago. Honestly, I’ve been having so much fun editing the film but trouble finding time to get the work done.
But I’m not making excuses…
I had a fairly large chunk of the film cut but decided to change the overall style and pacing of the film. The results have been awesome.
I’m so happy I went back and really thought about the story I want to tell again. Once I had it clear in my mind, the edits came easier than ever.
Behind the scenes, I spent a lot of time training on Soundtrack Pro and Color in preparation of the next step.

I also wrapped up some long overdue web and screenwriting projects in order to clear enough time to really focus on this project.
I watched the rough cut so far the other day and I can’t wait to finish. I’m proud of the film thus far. It’s completely different than Playing Through in every way.
2011 will definitely see the release of the film. I’m hoping to have it out sometime this summer.
I’m also planning a teaser trailer that should be released before the Spring. The full trailer will debut around the time the film is released.
I think what I’m really looking forward to is the sound and color work I’m going to tackle. The Climb was a good chance to try and handle all the post myself. It’s an interesting challenge and I’ll be updating constantly once things get going next month!
