Editing Jello

Learning on the fly about video editing, color timing and sound mixing. Sound is a whole'nother ball of wax - and what we've found out  -  duh!  -  is that sound can make or break your project. We're down to 3 days before Jim and Sam's Wedding and our film's premiere.  We received a final disc from our editor, but the color timing that he did is far too dark and moody for a Wedding piece.  So we're remixing and lightening the whole thing.  But with each tweak, it seems that our sound drifts and it's like trying to keep jello in the shape of the bowl after you dump it on the counter.
