The Editing Workshop

Trying to edit on paper first

Since I came back from the US, we've been editing, editing and editing. Islam Kamal is the main editor but we are all having what you can call an editing workshop. We wrote and directed this film as well as working in each other's segments as DOPs, ADs, Production managers, ... etc, you name it. This film was, is and will always be the most important learning process we've ever had. It's not only a film we are making but a workshop for all aspects of filmmaking we need to learn more about. This is why we decided to have an editing workshop before letting Islam Kamal start his job. Since June 7th, we've been meeting every Monday and Friday at 12 p.m.

Everybody is pretending to be serious infront of the camera

Ahmed Magdy is always ready with his small notebook, tissues and a bottle of water

The film has changed a lot since 2010 when we started writing it and we've changed a lot ourselves as well so editing it the 6 of us together is not an easy task. We finished the rough cut and now we are working on the final edit, the sound design and the music. Then Islam Kamal will take over and put everything right together. What we are really afraid of is that when people watch this film, they feel they are watching 6 short films not one film having 6 segments !!

Hend Bakr is discussing with us the new ideas she has for the film
