Make a Window Burn Copy

If you want to make notes on your edit, it is best to make them while you’re away from your editing system. Creating a window burn allows you to do so.

When you are editing with a computer, it’s easy to make changes to scenes. It’s so easy that you can overedit a scene, or an entire project, by continually making changes. A friend told me a story that describes the problem perfectly:

Two kindergarten teachers were sitting in the Teachers’ Lounge, talking over coffee. One mentioned how much better the other’s students’ finger paintings always looked than her own students’. She asked what she was doing wrong. The answer was unexpected: “I know when to take the paintings away.”

Movie making is part art and part science. I don’t mean to knock George Lucas, but how many different versions of Star Wars: Episode IV do we need? He is a good example of an artist who can’t let his project go.
