The negative cutter's assistant called today and offhandedly mentioned a price that was higher than the one agreed upon. I expressed my distress. The cutter is in China for three weeks, and it will take a while for his office to reach him to resolve the problem. Meanwhile, their office is submerged with work from filmmakers who need to make the Cannes deadline, and they are pushing my project back on their schedule.... Just another day in the film business world. I have no deadline at the moment, so I guess the delay won't kill me.

I looked at a computer mock-up of the titles at the title house today. They look pretty nice, simple as they are.
