BYOB – Travel Tuesday

At the start of a long journey (26 days), I want to make sure the doors are locked, the electronics are off, that I have all the toys I need for the trip… and that things in here stay civil. It is on long trips like this when suddenly, one day, a bunch of e-mails start coming in, begging me to wrangle this commenter or that one.
Please… no drunk commenting… no boners… no bold and capped abuse.
I will not be truly unavailable for a few days… but I am hoping that all of you will set the tone the you would like to see as the tone for all, not to turn this blog space into your own personal soapbox.
Thanks… back in a few hours…

BYOB – A New Week

Hopefully, some of the louder people – well, one – will be calmer this week.
Not a whole lot going on these days… maybe y’all have something great to chat about…

BYOB 368

I’ve been learning/wwrestling with new technology in the form of AVCHD… looks great… but all kinds of new formatting issues. Once I figure them out, I think it will be a love affair. Until then, frustrating as hell. But we have some great stuff from Bill Mechanic, Mary Stewart Masterson/Kristin Stewart/Aaron Stanford, and Mark Duplass coming your way with more after that as I head into my annual March/April travel frenzy.
Meanwhile, I leave you some more space to talk amongst yourselves… thanks for being civil…

“There’s a mass belief that if you’re texting, you’re somehow not interrupting the conversation—you’re not being rude. It’s an illusion of multitasking. I started filmmaking when people didn’t expect to have a phone on set, when it would’ve been seen as unprofessional to pull out a phone. Phones have become a huge distraction, and people work much better without them. At first it causes difficulty, but it really allows them to concentrate on what they’re doing. Everybody understands. I’ve had a lot of crews thank me. With a set, we’re trying to create a bubble of alternate reality.”
~ Christopher Nolan

“I’ve always loved films that approach sound in an impressionistic way and that is an unusual approach for a mainstream blockbuster, but I feel it’s the right approach for this experiential film. Many of the filmmakers I’ve admired over the years have used sound in bold and adventurous ways. I don’t agree with the idea that you can only achieve clarity through dialogue. Clarity of story, clarity of emotions—I try to achieve that in a very layered way using all the different things at my disposal—picture and sound.”
~ Christopher Nolan
