My first semester after passing my MidPoint Review I had a Directed Study with the illustrious Tom Bancroft as my one on one mentor. The first week, he watched the previous animatic and gave me notes focusing on the time reduction the MidPoint Review panel suggested, as well as general notes he felt like sharing. This lead to a reworking of the beginning and ending, as well as a shuffling and reduction of several scenes. It went from 3:00 to 2:25. This is intended to be the final cut.
