Project makes Film.com (thanks MaryAnn Johanson for your time)

MaryAnn Johanson, from Flickfilosopher and her blog, started a new film-writing venture here. She's been a film critic for some time & I emailed her clips of the project -- seeking her feedback.

And holy smokes she gave some! Check out the article & the whole film site. It's a good mix of useful + playful.

Learning the lense

I've started auditing footage from the most recent interviews from the weekend. I like how they address their geek-spouses' approach toward change, money matters, & self-respect.

One clear screw-up though: I set-up decent (colorful, relaxed, well lit) interview settings but asked the interviewees to look too far away from the camera toward me -- instead of across the viewed area framed by the lense. They look like they're about to fall off the edge.

...visuals forthcoming.
