That being said I find I continue on this hamster wheel of hope regarding technological breakthroughs that simplify the filmmaking process.
One of the few remaining drive-in theaters in the country is also a motel.
I went exploring today and found an interesting filmmaker.
Today I read an article on the Filmsupply blog - https://blog.filmsupply.com/articles/operation-avalanche/9 It is mostly an interview about the film, Operation Avalanche, that delves into the technical aspects of how they made the movie. I won't spoil those details here other than to say their workflow was unusual. In order to properly emulate the look of … Continue reading Film and Digital – Operation Avalanche and Workflows
I will be the first to admit that my love for Steven Soderbergh is waning. I could write an entire post about where I think it started to go wrong, about why it started to go wrong and if it could ever be made right again. Someday I might and perhaps one person might read … Continue reading Steven Soderbergh Interviews Gordon Willis

Some have a good ear, like O’Hara. Some are equipped … Continue reading Interview – E.B. White

They may like Henry James, but what if you don’t want to write like Henry James? They may like John Irving, for instance, who’s the … Continue reading Interview – Ray Bradbury
When I began writing, I thought that everything should be defined by the writer. For example, to say “the moon” was strictly forbidden; that one had to find an adjective, an epithet for the moon. (Of course, I'm simplifying things. I know it because many times I have written “la luna,” but this is a … Continue reading Interview – Jorge Luis Borges
I don't think there is anything that approaches the theater. The sheer presence of a living person is always stronger than his image. But there's no reason why TV shouldn't be a terrific medium. The problem is that the audience watching TV shows is always separated. My feeling is that people in a group, en … Continue reading Interview: Arthur Miller
