Listen to a conversation between two students.
Hey, Sarah. How's it going?
Not great. It's the student film I've been directing-you know, that project I've been working on for my film class.
Right-you said you were directing a film...
so what's wrong?
Well, the project's due in two days.
We were supposed to film the final scene today, but it's raining.
The scene is supposed to be set outside, with two characters talking in the park... on a beautiful, sunny day.
Oh, no. What are you gonna do?
Well, I could rewrite the scene, I guess...
I could revise it so it takes place inside a building instead...
maybe here in the student center somewhere.
Why don't you do that?
I could, but I'm happy with the scene as it's written now.
The film has an optimistic, happy ending.
That's why I wanted the last scene of the movie to be outside on a bright, sunny day...
because it sets a positive mood.
Oh. I see.[Pause].Well, the weather's supposed to be better tomorrow-sunny and warm. Why don't you film that scene tomorrow instead?
Thought of that, too, but since the project's due the day after tomorrow,
I was planning on using tomorrow to review the film and do any final editing and, you know, all the last-minute details.
That's true. There wouldn't be much time for that.
Yeah... Filming tomorrow might mean turning in a project to my professor that's not as polished-not as good-as I'd like it to be.
