The hardest cut

After a week of trying different things to get Detective Alberton to work and after having published that yesterday I decided today to try a violently re-cut version which takes us down to around 4 minutes.

I think it is massively improved by this even though most of the plot is left on the cutting room floor.

Let me know what you think:

I think this is as good as it gets, in fact it's pretty fun. The insets really help, and we probably should've done more of them. The music is really good too - I think we could do a pretty impressive Detective Alberton if we planned it a bit better. What do you think?

I think we could. I felt at one point that we needed a different scene we could have cut into it. Something nice and fluid that would be an obvious clock. Like a woman running.

That way we could cut back to it and it might heighten the tension. And then we'd have a scene when she arrived at the end.

The only problem with this is that we might end up a bit monty python (especially if one of us dressed up as the woman) but mainly like that scene where in holy grail one of the knights is running towards the castle and the two guards are just standing there and they keep cutting back to the knight just getting slightly closer each time.

But yeah, I'm pretty sure we could do something pretty good with the idea.
