Cutting this 1min 40sec sequence from Cassandra's press kit video "Designer Life" was an almost painful choice, but necessary in order to keep the finished piece under 10 minutes. Industry standard for a press kit is only 3 minutes- HOW DO THEY DO IT?! No seriously.
The way I had it "story boarded", I needed approximately 14 minutes, and the narrative would have been more like a mini documentary. The Cassandra McShepard Story, if you will. I think when I get back from California I'm going to make that little film I envisioned, and share it with you. I now thoroughly understand the term Director's Cut, and what film makers must go through. Wow.
Cherrie Hanson, you were on my shoulder the entire time..."Edit, edit, edit." Thank you for your inspiration.
