TRANSIT STRIKE AND SUNDANCE CRUNCH
I’m sure I’m not the only New York producer trying to figure out what the NYC transit strike means to an already down-to-the-wire Sundance feature post schedule. Fortunately, the project I’m working on is picture-locked and all elements are to the appropriate vendors. My worry is with the vendors and their employees, hoping that the strike doesn’t slow them down. I started my day today by calling our neg cutter. Fortunately, she was on the job and had left her outside-of-NYC home at 4:00 a.m. so as not to get nailed by the driving restrictions. My morning meeting at the lab cancelled, however, as people were stuck getting into the city. And we’ve been trying to figure out how to use FTP sites like YouSendIt.comto email large music files back and forth between the composers and the editors instead of messengering CDs.
If you’re shooting now or racing to finish, let us know by posting below how the strike is impacting you.
