So, finally: Braveheart is finished. I think a lot of the hold-up was trying to figure out how to make some of the death and the violence and the suffering and all funny. You'd think I'd have figured this out after Titanic, but apparently it took me one more movie to get the process down, which is this: don't make it funny. I mean, I know that sounds obvious, but it's a lot harder in practice, and I've ended up handling each instance differently. But mostly it involves sidestepping things, or focusing on a side element, or downplaying something, or having it happen "offscreen," so to speak. I'm just hoping I've got the technique down definitively enough that I can get through Gladiator without all this wibbling. (Think of the beginning of the movie in particular, with the emperor and the wife and the son and all. Yeah.)

I have two weeks left. It's Come to Jesus Time, as my mother would say. You may not see me around much for a while. I'll try to check in with any linkspam that comes my way, but... yeah. I'd like to do Sin City in Fifteen Minutes, but we'll have to talk about that once the book is turned in.
