Rat Rod Rockers! Editing

Ivan Molotov Meets Ruby Milldue
Hacked up Scene 45 for RRR! Ended up with multiple versions. Couldn't decide if I wanted to go with the intensity of the hand held shots or the composition of the tripod shots or various mixes of the two. With that many rough versions of the scene- it's just pick and choose later. On something like this, I like to wait a few days, come back and then pick which version to put in the film. Fresh eyes are best eyes and when you've been working on a scene 6 hours straight, take a break and come back.
I also tried out a new River Rock Studios plugin for Final Cut Pro on a close-up of the Dominatrix character Danika Molotov called "Jitterbug." This filter shakes the clips around making them look..well...jittery. I was trying to get a tripod shot to match the hand held footage. It kinda worked. Did some interesting things to the lighting of the shot as well (unexpected).
