It’s a beautiful film, and one of the years best.
The plot is as confusing as Primer and near impossible to sum up without sounding confusing. It’s not one genre but several, each in its own act.
The official synopsis is: A man and woman are drawn together, entangled in the life cycle of an ageless organism.
The films drifts from Crime, thriller, a beautiful romance, sci-fi, the quest for the perfect sound, and is also has Walden as an important plot point.
Its a double helix of a film.
Do it. You need it after this week.
And I gave my honest answer:
I would be happy being crew. Ya I have a desire to be a director, but I’d be happy being an AD, PA, camera assistant or any thing.
I love the feeling of being on set, it’s a drug that gives the best high in the world.
I really miss that feeling, and working on a project.
I need that.
Remember that short film I made last semester? So, after sitting on it over the summer I decided to open it up to cut it down for grad school apps. Unfortunately, due to my computer crisis over the summer, and some poor labeling on my part, most of the clips have been disconnected, and the already edited sequence unplayable. Even when I try to reconnect the files, it still won’t play/ can’t find it. Normally I save a copy of all the raw camera footage , but in this case I could not find the footage from the rolls I needed. That is until I took a harder look at the seemingly empty folder. Somehow the folder with all the video files is showing up as a massive AVCHD file which I discovered only after double clicking on it and selecting “Show Package contents”. I found the seemingly missing raw footage there, and can be imported to FCP7,so I just have to re-synch the audio and edit it. Which isn’t all that bad, but the AVCHD thing is still puzzling, as it only happen to those two folders and none other with the same content/ video file.
I did have to move the FCP files around, because I had to manually back up and restore my user data after my computer was wiped. The problem being that what ever fracked up my computer over the summer made Time Machine backups unviable. The kicker is that its taken me a week to figure all this out and its due, this friday.
But hey, whats filmmaking with out a SNAFU
