11 Aug Alana’s Script and The Doc
Alana and I have been working on her script together for the past couple of weeks. It’s a very strong script and my method of working on something like this is to try and keep as much as possible intact while adding and deleting as needed. Mostly at this point my goal is to trim out things that don’t move the story forward as forcefully as they might.
We’ve applied for a small grant that would enable us to make a very lo-fi version of the film. In some ways this would be a good way to make the film. It would be intimate and would reflect the feeling of the script in a positive way. At the same time, a lo-fi no stars version would make it difficult to really get it out there- and it is a strong film. So we’re trying to make the script as strong as possible and plan to explore other options as well.
At the same time I’ve been working some on putting together a trailer for the documentary that I’m working on. the trailer will be a little bit like the beginning of the film but condensed. I should have that finished in a couple of days.
