Makin’ and Watchin’

The script is coming along well. I’m still in the brainstorming stages of it, but should actually be writing the full-version shortly. I meditated for four hours on Sunday to try to spark the ol’ creative juices. I’m at an impasse right now in that I can’t decide how to end the story. Hopefully this block will clear and I’ll dive into the first draft in the next few days.

I saw War of the Worlds finally last night. I have to say that I’m really wondering about Spielberg. The last several movies he’s made he’s made he’s decided to go with that washed-out, grey-tinted look. I’m not sure if it’s me, but it seems like he’s been overdoing that a bit lately. That was really my only gripe about it, though. I also saw Elephant and Batman Begins and I also watched Anchorman again.

I also set up one of the new lighting rigs this weekend to see how well it works. I shot some test footage with some objects using it and some reflectors. I’ll use these as reference materials for full-length shoots. I’m also looking into purchasing a crane for overhead shots. I hope to be able to make a decision on the crane by Christmas time. I’ll also be getting a new fluid-head camera tripod system around then.
