Not all projects turn out the way you want or expect. When my recent attempt to make an action thriller imploded in on its own ambition (problematic shoot), I didn't want to let the team's hard work go to waste. So I cut the footage that WORKED into a micro thriller.
Looking at the finished (salvaged?) film, I can honestly say that I took more stylistic risks that I may not have taken had I stuck to the original vision of the film.
