As much as I enjoy my Godard-themed original trailer for The Riverbed, that was more of an impulse decision. The movie seemed years and years from completion, what did I have to worry about giving people the wrong impression? But now that it's almost done, I thought one last trip to the cutting room might be a good idea. I didn't want to give anyone the impression that the work that my incredibly talented cast put into this was somehow something I didn't think deserved my full attention. For a while I had a very daunting rough cut that I knew I had to address but it wasn't until Sam Sfirri, the generous soul who's composing the music, asked me a question about one of the scenes that I realized I couldn't let this sit any longer. Work needed to be done, and indeed it has. The rough cut is now very nearly a fine cut (I'm actually fixing a few last minute mistakes right now) and I hope to have a proper cut to show the world very soon. Also, I came up with a tagline of sorts, though it's not in the trailer. For now I'm going with: Where's the war?
