Joe Swanberg keeps this journal in an effort to document the LOL making process and figure out where all his time and money went.

    Deadlines are good. At least for me. It usually means that I rush some things and get a little lazy, but the alternative is working on something for the rest of my life and never feeling like it's finished.

    My dream scenario is to show LOL at the Rotterdam Film Festival and then at SXSW. The only way this can happen is if I have a cut of LOL finished in the next two weeks and quickly rush it to the Netherlands for the Festival to consider. So now that I have a deadline, I'm focused on getting this thing done.

    I'm going to send a DVD of the rough cut to Kevin in NY so he can watch it and give me notes, then I'm going to put some finishing touches on it and get it off to the Festivals. I'll still continue to polish things in the meantime, but I just want to get the film to a place where it's watchable, and they can decided whether they want to show it or not. It's almost there. There are just a few things missing that I need to polish up.

    So yeah, good, a deadline, now I can get down to business.
