The End Is Near

My filmmaker friends tell me that the great films are never finished, they are abandoned.

Of course any large project involves tremendous second-guessing, rewrites, and endless error-checking, but as production draws to a close on The Day After Tomorrow: Images Of Our Earth In Crisis, I’m almost embarrassed to say that it has not been too painful.

Unfortunately the production schedule conflicted with many other big projects (exhibits and shoots) that had been in the pipeline for years, and the BP Deepwater disaster especially interfered with the deadlines.  The emotional toll of repeated trips down to the Gulf has been great, and post production of those images has been extremely consuming.

Powerhouse has been very helpful, grumbling a bit about missed deadlines, but supportive of the decisions that led to them.  So many things developed as we were writing and assembling the book which had to be included, it’s surprising we are so close to schedule.

One of the most exciting things for me about the book is the people who have contributed: some of the writers, scientists, and environmentalist that I respect most in the world agreed for some reason to write.  Each contributed a personal essay, running the gamut from hilarious to heart-wrenching.  A discussion of who they are and what they wrote in the next blog.
