Editor's Note from Andy Pandy:
I came into Cockyboys as an assistant editor when editing for The Lamb
began. My job was to grab usable selects from the footage and pass them onto the editor for this project, Cilantro
. My first impression of the footage was that it looked great and was well shot, but I could not for the life of me decipher what the story was about. I noticed a great attention to detail established between the takes; a model's dialogue would be adjusted so that it came out more natural, or buttons on a coat adjusted so that they were facing the camera just so. Over time, I realized the story portion of Answered Prayers
was a much more organic process-- one that was shaped and materialized in editing after many meetings between Jake Jaxson and Cilantro. As a fly on the wall for some of the story meetings, I saw that this project was deeply personal for Jake Jaxson, and that there were many layers to the world he had created within the series. I found it fascinating hearing about the inspirations behind choices, and I thought it was important for the viewer to also get a look at his process.
This behind-the-scenes documentary is chance for you to get a first-hand look at Jake Jaxon's process for Answered Prayers. The interview was shot in one evening in the "CockyBoys Manor" upstate New York, in Jake Jaxson's office while they were in the midst of wrapping up filming for The Actor
. I hope you enjoy as much as I did hearing what went into the creative process to make Answered Prayers a reality!
