So, I had lots of fun today! Most of my experience has been in tv production, but the skills proved to be transferable to film as well. Today’s film is an indie production by a separate company, but my friend Dankwa Brooks was brought on to direct. Check out his Facebook page: ‘Nother Brother Entertainment
Being on set today made me appreciate the creative process and especially ramped up my visual organization skills. Dankwa’s shot list was well thought out and we definitely accomplished a lot at the location. I would love the idea of producing a short film. Maybe NaNoWriMo will inspire an idea? I hear they do scripts as well!
However, NaNoWriMo is going slowly. I’m not used to writing so much! I’m behind a bit, but hope to catch up by the end of the week. I’m filling in by writing 100 words here and there over checking my Google Feed Reader (HIGHLY addictive, btw). However, this coming week may prove to be challenging…my calendar is “packed” (relative term…it just means I have to come into the city more than twice this week on top of maintaining my decidedly suburban life…a feat that requires meticulous planning.)
The NaNoWriMo story *is* taking some interesting turns, though! Now to just need to write them.
