I realized from the start that this film I'm spearheading is going to be a monumental collaborative venture. Styling my career over the past 34 years as an agile one man band creates a habit/thought process set that won't work in a project like the one I'm facing, at least not to achieve the final product that I envision. There are so many facets to this production that I find myself researching a myriad of subjects, from equipment to cinematography, cinematographers, directors, post processing, platforms, story boarding, and a dozen other things.
I joined the "Red" community and have spent the last week pouring over the information and resources there. I have an upcoming meeting with the boys at Chino to discuss platforms, largely B25 related, and to get up to speed on any special tricks of the trade they may be able to share. Then to Hawthorne to get familiar with Dan Wolfe and his team and technology. Obviously I love what I do on a daily basis, but I find myself waking up in the middle of the night brainstorming this project and other opportunities that will most certainly spring from it. This morning my eyes popped open at about 3:30 and my mind was going full tilt, it's been along time since I was this challenged and excited about an opportunity. I'm hoping that an old dog can teach himself some new tricks!
Here's something cool I found in my research, thought you all might enjoy it...........
