Unexpected wind, technical difficulties, and an exhausted crew set us back two weeks in our shoot schedule. We didn't get to shoot any of the scenes we'd planned to do this evening. But, I'm still positive and happy about everything. We're moving right along. It'll take a bit longer, but it's OK. I've been working on this project for years now, so what's another few weeks?
Creative projects always take longer and cost more than anyone expects. Which makes me wonder how or why anyone expects to make any reasonable estimates about timelines and budgets.
I think from now on I should have a rule that goes something like this: I'll take however much time and money something should take and multiply it by four. When I think back, just about everything I've ever done takes about four times as long and costs about four times as much as anyone expects.
So, I guess the answer is four.
