The opening

So I’m calling it quits, it’s now 7:45, I’ve been at it for 12 hours. As I said I have almost 100 hours of footage to go through, It’s been 3 days and I have 3 minutes edited. The more I do, the stronger I feel emotionally for the project. It hasn’t yet, but I suspect this is going to become all consuming with me. My last documentary, I became so obsessed with it that I could hardly sleep. I was working many days from 3 or 4 in the morning, when I woke up thinking about it, until I fell asleep at 10 or 11 at night. At first when this started happening I tried to make myself sleep more, thinking that lack of sleep would harm me. It didn’t appear to, so I just gave into my active brain and existed for the last month of that project on an average of two hours sleep per day. When I finished I went back to a normal sleep pattern immediately.
