Cutting Through Sound

Deadlines make great editors.

Yesterday I gathered probably two hours of sound, plus a ton of photos and some video. Some of the sound was spectacular — luggage push-carts on hard concrete, Farsi speakers shouting to each other, a border official stamping a passports. Today I got even more — soldiers breaking down AK-47s and being trained in police techniques. It could easily have sat on my computer for months, the volume of it was so daunting. Instead I finished my script today and will hopefully have it together for Tuesday.

Nothing like having stuff to do to make getting things done easier. Now it’s time to get to more of it.
