Knee Deep In Post
We are pretty much done shooting season three of "Gene Simmons Family Jewels." Gene and KISS have left for Europe for a mini-tour.
But our work is only half done.
Now we must finishing editing the shows. Unlike many reality shows where everything in the can and cut before the first episode even premieres, we are only a few weeks ahead. And that is a scary thought.
We have five edit bays going at one time, each editor assigned to a different episode. GSFJ episodes take about 5 weeks to cut. They are each a mini-film pretty much. In fact, we have shot enough footage this season for approx. 18 feature length films. Try whittling that down to half hour episodes. Not an easy task.
So now my days are spent jumping from edit bay to edit bay, reviewing cuts, making changes, signing off on things and incorporating notes from the network.
As if that wasn't enough, we have been greenlit for season four so we are starting to plan that as well.
In between that Marc and I are finishing another comic book script and preparing proposals for new ones.
I guess it's better than being unemployed.
