Last night, I finally buckled down and fired up Audacity to begin the editing work on the audio commentary that I taped with Lyssa for the first installment of Saw, in advance of Saw 3D‘s opening this coming weekend. According to my time stamps, I started working on the project, around 11:17 pm and stopped working on it at around 3:02 am. In that time, the file shrank from being 2 hours long to being about 1 hour long.
And there’s only 20 min. or so of good material so far.
Editing audio down is actually pretty fun, and the sound quality’s pretty awesome. I had my headphones plugged into my computer and I could hear the softer conversations in the movie quite well. That really came in handy when it came to making choices on where to cut based on our reactions, especially when we started riffing on some of the dialogue.
I’m going to work on it again tonight, and hope that I’ll be done tonight. Then, after that, I have to write my The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest review, and then I think I’m gonna start working the second part of my NYCC review.
It’s good to be working on the GeekingOutAbout.com website again.
Now, if only I could start writing up my new Smut Peddler story idea…
