Cinematography on my Mind ...

Spent a few hours last night at Eddie's place watching the BMW Films DVD on his projection-screen TV. While I've seen the films on my computer - it was the first time I caught the entire series in its full wide-screen, surround-sound glory. Stunningly beautiful camerawork and writing - very inspirational.

(for those of you who aren't familiar with the series - BMW Films was a project in which BMW approached five rising-star movie directors (Ang Lee, Wong Kar-Wei, John Frankenheimer, Guy Richie and Alejandro González Iñárritu) to produce 5-minute short films for Internet distribution featuring BMW cars. The films range from testosterone-charged pursuit sequences to haunting dramas ... highly recommended)

Over dinner, we discussed script/story issues for a film project that I'm writing/directing ("Bulletproof Vandal"), fleshing out some of the better ideas and culling out unworkable/weaker story points. Then on my drive home, I ended up spending another hour on the phone with foobiwan talking about some of the project's technical and artistic elements. There's a lot to think about. Hopefully, I will have a preliminary script ready in 6~8 weeks and begin auditions/casting soon after.

Updates to follow.

PS: Finally was able to load images from my digital camera - new picture posted in my BBQ on Ocean Beach in San Francisco journal entry.
