We met with a development producer who provided us with some useful contacts and general comments on the commercial viability of the project. Her background is in conventionally financed, theatrically released films, so her take on the whole thing was refreshing, James and I having lived in the land of no-budget/public-funding for so long. Her suggestion was to think about it in much bigger terms, ie. a budget of around UKP850,000, shooting on film. I just want to make it. I really want to make it. This journal’s been going for a year now and we don’t have a single frame of video to show for it. Still, on we plod…
Month: April 2003
Soul Searcher: April 23rd 2003
Things have progressed very slowly of late. James has been finishing up his latest book on Francis Ford Coppola, and I’ve been working on a few different things. We finally got it together to have a meeting tonight. We talked Soul Searcher for about five minutes. Then, ahem, we talked about other stuff. When discussing with James what I should write in this entry, he said: “We were both suffering from romantic confusion,” then hastily added, “but not between ourselves.”
We do have a meeting on Friday that may prove useful, however.
