My watchwords are passion, purpose, and process.
My passion is for books, and for sharing information about the challenges of aging.
My purpose is to alleviate the stress and anxiety of elders and their adult children through education.
My process is the subject of this blog. What’s yours?
In film, dissecting the story, finding its elements is essential; and the process is very different for me as a filmmaker compared to the one I use as a writer.
Finding a story
What drives the story?
What’s most important from a creative point of view? Place? Antonioni, Wiseman, Kurosawa; Time? Ken Burns; Characters? Bergman: Scenes from a Marriage; How do they weigh in the piece?
What’s most important from a technical point of view? Sound: The Conversation, THX 1138, lighting Orson Welles, location Nanuk of the North?
