Gnar Days 2 Premiere SUSPENDED
The premiere of GD2 will have to wait for at least a couple more weeks; perhaps more than a month, as the drive containing the GD edits, footage and graphics is currently undergoing a format recovery.
I’ve already determined that the raw material is mostly intact and recoverable, but it’ll take time to rebuild the project.
In order to meet today’s premiere deadline, I had put off freelance work that I would push through to completion in the nights following. Now, GD2 is being salvaged (with a $100 software recovery fee) and I still have to pull a couple all-nighters to catch up before I can even begin to rebuild GD2.
I’m left reeling at the concept of nine months of work being very nearly flushed down the toilet. 100+ hours of shooting, 300+ hours of editing, and the same amount of time lost with my family. To say that I’m devastated, is a gross understatement.
As I mentioned, the raw material is being recovered and I have no intention of giving up on this year’s video. Once the footage and graphics are back in working order, I’ll begin the rebuild. To those who were looking forward to today’s premiere, I apologize. It’ll be a bit longer to the premiere than I had intended.
