It's been a while since I've posted. The reason is that I've been working non stop. This has been going on for years, but it reached a point I simply could not do anything but finish projects.However, we just finished a few major projects and are just about to start a few more, so I thought now would be a good time to actually collect some of our work share a larger perspective of what it is that I do.Realistically this is only like 20% of the stuff we've done in the last handful of years, but collecting all of i...Read more

Very short blog. I w as reading an old blog post of writer John August and he was complaining that so many of the independent scripts he reads are not taking advantage of a free production value - a good story. The line which I thought was well put was this. "And while Sex, Lies and Videotape might seem low-plot, the story keeps forcing characters to make choices and face the consequences."What I like about this comment is how story (and drama) is separated out from the requirement of plot and how simple it becomes.

In part three I'm talking about Lenses. There is something shocking people learn about lenses. They cost more than cameras!!!Not always, but good ones do. Yes, it is very common for $100,000 lens package to be used with a $20,000 camera. Even lately I've seen them used with $2,000 cameras.
