Wednesday, August 04, 2004Real Work
I hope everyone will pardon me if there's a bit of a lull in the blog. Now that the shooting schedule on Lee's film has eased up a bit, it's time I got started on my own work; I've been gestating the seed of a short film in my mind for a few weeks now, and I've gotta start turning that into something tangible. I hope to shoot in early November, which isn't far away, so I've got a lot of preparation to do in a short period of time (especially considering October is mostly full already.)
The temptation to avoid my real work in favor of this pseudo-work is intense (a major theme in the work I'm doing), but the film, not the blog, is what this is all about. Focus is all-important. (I wish like hell I didn't have the distraction of someone else's film to deal with right now.)
Right now I'm just trying to get the core concepts down, trying to figure out how all these threads relate to each other. This, I think, is the hardest part. I wish I could find a comfortable place to work.
Anyway, I will try to catch the production journal up soon. There's a lot of other stuff going on, too, but nothing the rest of the blogosphere can't deftly cover without me. |
