First off, I moved, and that took a couple of months out of my work schedule. Of course that was a piece of cake when compared with reason number two.
Second, I began working on the film again in early October and immediately suffered an outright hard drive crash.
Seven yeas of work disappeared right in front of my eyes. I had a few delays before i could work on the rebuild. And believe me that made for very long days and sleepless nights.
Rest assured, the danger has passed and I did manage to rebuild the film (minus a couple of inconsequential files).
Im back at work and hope to have some updates for you in the new year.
Thank you all for your patience and understanding!
