[Avid-L2] Re: OT - "The Ghost Writer"

Nine feet by four feet is bigger than some of the places I've had to edit in. I once had to edit a children's show in a sound booth because it was the on;y room available. It was awful, like being in a coffin. Plus I had to stop when the studio needed the booth for commercial sessions.

Oh yeah, and the worst part:it wasn't big enough to lie down. NO EFFEN' NAP!

True story. Back in the old EMC2 days in NYC.
