Next phase

18 May

for now- the correct thing to say for us common folk is “WRAP PARTY”
I think this shot from today correctly expresses how I feel about the project

Almost done shooting- just a few more scenes and my focus will be purely on editing.
My fear was that the film would be less than 60 minutes- turns out it could be well over 70 or 80- it depends on certain factors.. Concerned if the audience can have such patience for it?!

Possible plans to go to LA to make films with my brother- I’ll be enrolling for school in the fall- hopefully will have my editing down at that point so I’m not dealing with such possible stress

At this point- whether or not the film ever is seen- all I can say is how grateful and blessed I’am for this experience. Looking back upon the footage I see so many fun shoots (for me…) way back in february.. Just random moments of time when we’d all pretend in some silly idea for a few minutes- record it and organize it in such a way that people think something is actually going on..
I’ve even gotten requests for a copy of the film recently.. Unsure really what to think of it. Quite happy that someone is interested in seeing more than what I’ve shared.. The film- as all filmmakers realize and know- is never quite what you set it out to be. Not a bad thing- or really good.. But certainly opens your mind for future projects. My next film idea is really more clear to me compared to the foggy viewpoint I had on Sub-Express..
If possible my aim is to play the film in at various venues with hopes of getting more people interested- but how is that gonna happen? No clue

Recently got to complete a music video:

Please share with all you can! Film is almost done shooting

hardly just

1 May

the shooting is almost complete- I’ve got some last important scenes that truly tie loose ends together

I’m enjoying this process so much- the editing is getting confusing as I’m having many technical problems of the files swapping with each other. Is annoying when you see the image and hear audio from a completely different scene
But its part of the process as well
My time with the Medicine for the People was short- but the footage I have captured will last me quite some time. I ran into some of the people I know from the shows and interviewed them on the spot (at a guitar store and on the street)
how often are the people you want to see just sitting there? One guy had a bus to catch (2+ hour ride) soon so the interview was essential (I also didn’t think I’d see him again..)
So yes- more music videos to come- Almost done with the only planned out video. Check out the sneak peak:

Next step is to get the Subjective Expressions teaser up- which should be quite soon- I’m experimenting with colors now- and the editing could use some decent time
While trying to do my own passionate work – wedding editing consumes me mostly- almost done I can happily say! The final video is fantastic- probably the best wedding we’ve ever done. With 4 camera man we couldn’t go quite wrong.

there is no division in nature
such a silly human concept
out IS in and in IS out

expect nothing
