P.S. (remembering I'm happy)

Gee, yesterday was such a hard day that this morning when I wrote about editing my film, I see now that all I did was talk about my mistakes.
So this evening I must add my delight and pride and thrilled astonishment: Orestes and the Fly is almost done!!!
Wow...
I remember when I started last fall, a friend told me I had bitten off more than I could chew, for a first film.
He was right, but I just kept chewing. A lot of people have helped--gnawed on the tough bits and the like--and really, I think the final result won't be half bad, all things considered.
I am very, very happy.

The finishing line is just ahead... and remember, there is always the Directors Cut to put out next year...

Aaargh! No! No director's cut. I'm ready to be done forever. In fact, I almost am.
There is, however, "The Making Of" to complete. It doesn't have to be edited into a seamless whole though, so it should be much more fun, much less nerve-wracking.
