Mr. Weiss said it really well
"how much does a car cost."

And Mr Suszko had it dead right on this part:

You can expect to spend a week to ten days, just logging and ingesting the footage.

It can easily take several hours just to log one hour of interview or monologue, especially if you really care about the result.

My all-time favorite quote on this is from Mike Nichols, speaking on NPR:
"You can change things in a movie right down to the last minute, because that's what's so great about film and mixing, and you never stop fussing with a movie. And they finally just have to take it away from you, because you're still fixing."
