Well, it has been a long time coming but at midnight on December 14th I released the final cut of Wait for the Drop. As of now (8:40pm) the film has over 500 hits on Vimeo. That’s an unreal number for me considering many of my videos don’t reach 60 in the first week and seem to peak around 400 after a year. So that might put how crazy this is in perspective.
The response to the documentary has been fantastic, and I would like to thank everyone who linked the video on there pages (there is no higher compliment). It’s nice to get wrapped up in the praise and the view count but any video always seems like a work in progress. I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I set out to make the documentary but I couldn’t be happier with result. My goal is and will always be to tell good stories and go beyond simply “looking nice.” There’s definitely work to be done in process of storytelling and really constructing a strong narrative but time should effectively take care of that. Until then I’ll take some time to soak this one in but I’m sure in a few days I’ll be ready for the next project.
…I wonder what it will be.
