During the last few weeks at my internship for Film Independent, myself and Kara Johnson have been consumed with editing the first of seven required sizzle reels covering this year’s LA Film Festival. With over 12 TB of footage to sort through, I personally find it amazing that we, along with our fellow intern Yumi and our boss Brandon, were able to put this together so quickly. I am extremely proud of the video and I can’t wait to share it with everyone.
What was perhaps the most challenging part of making this first sizzle reel is just how concise we had to be when it came to selecting which clips to utilize. It was incredibly strange to have to seriously debate if we should use another quote from Woody Allen or let Chris Pine chime in. At first we were so concerned with having enough material to choose from, with the issue quickly shifting to trying and choose only the best shots. Anyway, there will be several more videos that we will share with you, but enjoy this one to start!
