The primary focus of cut screenings is on the picture edit, and how those picture editing choices serve story and character. It is not expected that you will have a polished soundtrack or that you will have completed any color correction. Include only the essential sound elements for the cut screening: primarily dialogue and temp music. Sound effects are only important if they are critical to understanding the story (e.g., if we don’t hear the knock at the door, we’ll be confused for the rest of the scene).
The goal is to present a cut that is 3 minutes and 30 seconds in length. However, if you are having difficulty getting it down and it is running a little long that is okay. It’s better for us to see the excess footage at this point, so that we have a better sense of what materials you are working with.
Please make sure to include the at least one title card from your credits so we can see how your last frame of picture transitions into credits. You do not need to include the full front sequence. Mark in so we have 5 seconds of the slate, then the countdown, and leader.
