I got another three and a half minutes out of the cut, bringing the total running time down to under 107 minutes. One of the many great things about the DVD format is that it makes it a lot easier to cut scenes, knowing that people will eventually see them on the disc release. It’s satisfying anyway to trim things down and make them work better.
With the nightclub reshoot off the cards, the only remaining live action photography is a mottley assortment of inserts, and a few extra shots of some of the leads, One of these is a high fall which AJ is keen on doing himself. At his suggestion I’m contacting Hereford Swimming Pool with a view to chucking Mr. Nicol off their top diving board.
