maybe little dissolves will do the trick on DNO :: January '08 $0 - $1K feature project: "Bears"

Little Dissolves

The final version of Date Number One has been done for a while, but I am still iffy about the many jump cuts. I like the jump cuts, do not want to replace them with traditional/match cuts, but maybe the weirdness can be smoothed over (without totally losing the weirdness) a tiny bit by turning the jump cuts into little, fast dissolves, will have to try it out tonight.

::

"Bears" (working title)

1. I think bears are funny. The actual animal and many ideas related to the animal.

2. I want to try to shoot a new feature in January '08.

3. I don't want to spend a lot of money on this feature because that would mean more debt. Debt is bad.

4. I think I can keep the budget under $1K (meaning as close to $0 as possible) & still create a very entertaining & loopy comedy with beautiful videography & sound.

5. Nothing more on "Bears" until the movie is done. Also no more on Date Number One until the DVD is ready for sale.

Happy New Year to all in case I don't get to blog again until after the 1st (& of course Merry X-mas since today is X-mas eve day).

'08 might be pretty awesome.
