editing+finishing my 1st FEATURE FILM (94min)

still image with CLOSED CAPTIONED text

Where I'm headed to.
My Script w/Notes (above image)
how Jane works: i print out images during the editing process and take them with me everywhere on a daily basis. i scribble down notations and ideas onto the printed images almost like a makeshift version of a "working script". i return to editing table nightly to encorporate the daily notes and to print out new images that push the process foward. During day hours i collect sound with a 48khz SONY field recorder and place the collected sounds onto a thumbdrive (that then gets manipulated in SOUND FORGE for sound design use).

Plotting a conventional user-friendly Narrative


Cinema is meant to be a response to the world, as opposed to a distraction from it, an engagement with the present and the past, historical and aesthetic ---in essence, a dismantling of the barrier between the two.

"People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway. If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway. The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. In the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway."
