Sorry I haven't updated this for a couple of weeks, I've been working on another project since mid November and it's taken a ton of my time. Anyway the edit has been coming together really nicely and the stuff we picked up last month slots in pretty much seamlessly. So now I think there's only two more scenes that we need to shoot - the flashback opening and the newly written coda for the ending. As an exercise David and James have been going through all of the footage for the best outtakes to create a blooper reel - amazingly there are loads of laughs which is always heartening! David also went through the cut and created a mini swear reel - rather like this one from The Big Lebowski.
I have to say I was quite interested to see we have less fucks in The Stagg Do than they do in Lebowski - but then I don't really consider TBL to be a massively sweary film - which of course it is with 287 uses of the f word! The other really sweary film that I have been counting swears in is In The Loop - which has over 136 uses of the word fuck; I think we are more in the region of this number of fucks with a smattering of tits, cocks and wankers! Maybe we'll get a chance to post our swear reel soon - in the meantime enjoy this from the inimitable Malcolm Tucker.
Will try our best to keep this busy during the shoot and post-production.
