October 12, 1996

Sundance deadline was yesterday. Oh, well. I'm still poking around trying to find out if we might be able to submit the film late, but no one I've talked to has been too encouraging about that possibility.

We showed bits of the film today to Strawn, the actress in my first movie, and her husband, who were visiting from L.A. Somehow the early scenes are looking very slow to me now. I guess we'll wait a while to see them in context before changing them.

Robin and I laid in my official favorite scene today, a sex scene in which Edith gives Dylan mid-coital instructions in a harsh tone of voice that is amazingly authentic. I really don't think I've seen that sort of thing very often in the cinema.
