The major cut was not having Fred Coldwell's interview. But when you go through their interview and then see the final product you understand what they are doing. I have explained that in an early section.
Toni and I were interviewed for almost three plus hours.
They went through the process again and again and again, with slightly different questions, camera angles and props.
It was never meant to be a travelogue about Africa. It was the story of an Airstream.
I find that some of the information that Toni and I gave during the interview was used by Tokufu in his opening and ending. By the way it was used skillfully.
Go to the analysis. It will tell you a little more of how HD weaved the tale.
The cutting room floor is not as cluttered as you might think.
