Like a Christmas present.
Digital technology being what it is, I’ve already been able to cobble together and view a first assembly of KK. First assemblies, for those who’ve never seen one, are the part of the filmmaking process where the director claps his hands over his mouth, screams silently and weeps that he’s made a piece of shit. It is the worst a movie can look; cobbled together with no care or attention, no sound mixing, no special effects, just one scene after another – Bang, bang, bang. It’s really just meant to give an idea of how the thing is shaping up in terms of running time and pacing, and it’s usually horribly depressing. I barely spoke for days after the TrashHouse first assembly. I just couldn’t believe that there was a film in that wreckage.
The KK first assembly played better than I could have dared hoped. It actually made me happy rather than making me depressed. If Hellbride slots together even a fraction as well, then the next few months might be rather more fun than they have any right to be.
