Hey all, I’m back with more information regarding the production process of Love, Death, and Change. I’m aware that I promised a tentative shot list for this week’s post, but unfortunately the shot list will not make an appearance until next week. The reason for this is that on Tuesday, Kaylin and I met with one of our professors to workshop the screenplay, and we came away with some great notes that Kaylin hopes to incorporate into the story. While she’s doing that, I decided that I would wait for the next copy of the screenplay before I sat down to draft up a shot list for the film. Due to the fact that I mislead some of you, I apologize deeply and hope you’ll find it within yourself to not only to forgive me, but to continue coming back each week to read updates on LDC.
As always, I’m still looking for inspiration for the project. Due to the heavy workload that I have this week, I’ve been unable to watch anything. That being said, I plan to rewatch M. Night Shyamalan’s The Sixth Sense, as the story is not only somewhat similar to that of LDC, but I’m certain that it provides some insight on how to cinematographically portray character who perhaps aren’t real. Along with the The Sixth Sense, I’ve been looking for a film that revolves around the relationship of two brothers, and have decided that I should watch the film adaptation of one of my favorite stories, Norman Maclean’s A River Runs Through It. For those of you not aware of the story, A River Runs Through It is a semi-autobiographical novel about Maclean and the relationship he had with his own brother Paul. Along with a quick picture of the shot list I’ve promised you, I’ll be sure to put some pictures of The Sixth Sense and A River Runs Through It up. That’s all for now. I’ll see you guys next week.
