My computer is at 24% (we’re in the city and I forgot my power cord), the video is slow …. ly uploading to vimeo, I’m breathing and staying calm …. ish. It’s been a total mad dash.
This music video for Forest‘s song “Weep and Wail” has been by far the most challenging monthly movie project for many reasons. I felt extra pressure to make it so that the artist aka my husband would love it. I had to work with the most actors I’ve worked with so far who were all just delightful, including the most exemplary music video extras you could ever find. Plus, I did lots and lots of driving in traffic to and from the east bay. Twice.
The editing has been borderline torturous. Lots of “I love it” “I hate it.”
Ok, enough with the hardships, I really like the way it turned out. Not perfect, but that’s the point of these monthly exercises; to live with imperfection.
My friend Suzanne came though for me and videotaped Nevada clouds because there was not a could in the sky here in the bay. The benefit of Facebook. 🙂
Big thanks to Jordan and Joaquin for sending me the most beautiful Australian and New Mexican skies.
I finished filming on Wednesday evening, started editing on Thursday evening and had bits of time yesterday and today in-between films and events at the San Francisco International Film Festival. I even got to be on a Virtual Reality filmmaking panel. What? It was virtually captivating.
As always, thank you SO much for taking the time to watch my films. Write back if you can.
