- The assesment is made up of three parts: The actual film (a 10 minute piece based on a script from Screenwriting last term), the main paperwork, backed up the blog here, and an evlauation of the whole affair.
- The film is, of course, a collaboration, so producer and director alike will recieve the same grade. One cannot afford to not pull heir weight.
- Next week, we are to pitch our short film. The key topics to cover are: Synopsis, Theme, Genre, Style (and references/influences), demographic, distribution, planning, budget, schedule and a 'Plan B'/contingency.
Certainly, a mauling like this one is healthy for us, since it really gets us into gear and moving. In our case, Catherine was not overly worried, admitting readily her shortcomings. However, as her producer, I intend to see things done and soon. Over the coming week, I will work with her on the synopsis, as well as the pitch. She stills maintains her determination, which again, is good for me as it keeps up morale and shows commitment, vital for a healthy and functioning director0producer relationship. I hope luck will smile on us soon....
