The Value of Vacation Footage

Some of the transitions in To Rest in Peace are waiting for b-roll footage from Kuwait. In the meantime, we were planning to put up title cards, saying things like "neighbourhood passes by," so we can work out the timing. The 2nd unit trip won't be until we are almost picture locked in October.

Then I realized I had tons of video from my last trip to Kuwait. The driving bits came to almost an hour of usable footage! So for now, the film will intercut beautiful RED cinematography, with my miniDV vacation video. Properly blown up to HD, of course.
