Apologies for not having posted since last July.
It’s not like I haven’t been writing.
In my alcove standing at my 1940s Hamilton Drafting Desk, with a view of San Francisco Bay, I’ve been writing. Promise. Twenty-two megabytes worth on Google.
It’s just not something I’ve felt like I could share here. It’s been my secret. My baby.
The stuff I’ve been writing is for my new film project.
Unless someone asks me, I’ve been pretty quiet about it.
But lookout if you ask. I’ve seen my friends shift their stance when they do.
There eyes say,
“Oh no, here she goes. Why did I ask? Why won’t she shut up? She doesn’t follow cues.”
Anyway, I took a snapshot of all the documents I’ve created. Check it out.
What? You can’t see it? Basically there are oodles of topics I’ve written for my current short documentary digital film, such as:
Early phone interview questions
Interview questions for Subject including background, creative process, problems and philosophy
Interview questions for Directors re: Subject’s taste
Interview questions with Experts
Filmmaker’s (Director’s) perspective re: story
Descriptions of the look and the mood of the film for camera and colorization in post
Justification, Treatment, Outline, Synopsis of film
Research on art in sound and it’s relevance to my film
Research and thoughts on Beatnik and use in my film
A list of prospective music
Transcription of footage and audio already recorded
Shot lists for various locations
List of B roll needed
Items needed including: photos, objects, and sounds needed from subject and for the film
Custom Photo, Audio and Video Releases, per individual
Letters to Directors/Producers
Emails and texts to my Subject, Phone conversation notes
Periodic Tweets, Instagram and Facebook posts, updating status about project
Well I told you, once I get started I can’t stop. Honestly, I have to leave town to forget about it.
I will finish this film eventually, but until then, I’m enjoying the process.
Right now I’m stumped by Legal, Consent and Copyright Issues.
I’ll keep you posted;-)
