Time Dilation

| No Comments

After a delicious 3 1/2 hour sleep, I rousted myself from the office floor to get back to the grind. Before I had blinked (but after I'd put on yesterday's clothes again and had a coffee), it was 11:45. I am not sure where the time went. We scarfed lunch from 2 - 2:15, then suddenly the 5:00 bells were ringing. The next 90 minutes were frantic as we hustled to get the edit finalised for the narration recording. Now it's 7:30 and I'm home but confused about whether it is morning or night.

Seep deprivation, coupled with focus on work, plays funny tricks with time. And maybe if it didn't, video editors wouldn't notice all the little details we see in the film we make. After a few days of intense work, Rob & I review our edits and see misaligned transitions, transparency problems, and all sorts of things that normal people really don't notice. I think if we had adequate sleep, we wouldn't see those nits.

I'm not sure if this is a good thing or not, but it is a little bit interesting.
