I’m employing all sorts of tricks and techniques to try and avoid falling into any sort of rhythm with my cuts. It’s difficult because the moment my brain relaxes it starts to look for patterns.
To stop my brain doing this I’m only working in short bursts with intermittent visual distractions. Also, whilst cutting I keep myself in a state of permanent aural confusion by having my eclectic collection of music on a random playlist.
It’s stressful and exhausting but it’s yielding the results I want. I need regular breaks and this means I don’t feel I’m making any solid progress but I just need to dig deep and run with this. I know the results will be worth it.
