After 6 weeks of shooting in the bleak midwinter, John Harrigan dove into the editor’s cave and started doing the magic he’s so adept at. Recently, he emerged, with the first edit of Lightships for viewing… just for the critical eyes of those in the core filmmaking crew, a necessary step in getting ready for prime time.
First Edit: Check
All I can say is “Wow!” this is going to blow people’s minds. For many reasons. Not only is it breaking new ground by taking initial form from my book Remembrance, it’s moving into bold new territory as a piece of filmmaking. It’s new. Powerful. Painted in big colors with energy and depth.
Like all the work that comes through the auspices of the League of Light, it’s transformational, even in this early stage of post-production. Those of us who watched it were shaken… then stirred. This film, though it’s not yet complete, is already touching people very deeply. Shifting awareness. It’s going to be an evolutionary experience to be reckoned with, when it comes to screens in its final form.

On to the Next Phase
Now John’s back in the cave, having had a breather between the first edit and the next phase of the project. I’ll let you know how the next edit comes along as I get news. Suffice it to say, we’re all eagerly anticipating the next iteration.
One thing’s for sure: Lightships is going to carry a lot of people into new territory.First edit of Lightships, based on the book Remembrance, is done.
