Now we wait.
I'm hitting the books while we have this rare period of calm. Some titles are new to me; others I have already read. I'm amazed at how different topics jump off the page after making a new film. Though some of these books are not specific to film, they will contribute to my approach in future projects.
Most of these books were recommended to me, and I was so grateful to hear about them. I thought I would pass these on:
|Cinematic Storytelling, by Jennifer Van Sijll|
One of our goals for the next project is to incorporate camera movement into our vocabulary when planning the shots. This book is an ideal place to start
|Looking at Movies, by Richard Barsam|
An introduction to film text that I appreciate a lot more after having made this film.
|On Writing, by Stephen King|
Stephen King talks frankly about his experiences with a life of writing.
