This week our silent movie project metamorphosed into something completely different. I have learned much this year at school, and could stand to learn a great deal more. But think I have finally learned that there should be almost no sitting around and lots and lots of getting going and doing. That yes, a bit of time focused o high pt low pt is good, but then get up and go. We have changed our project into a series of photos depicting the various scenes in Alice in Wonderland. Against them we will put the music we decide best describes the mood and emotions in the scene, and then this will all be put together into a montage.
I was trying to work through all the details involved in making a movie as I know them (and truth be told I don’t much know them) and it suddenly came clear to me that there was no way these guys were going to make it through. That what I ultimately hope to accomplish with them has little to do with the discussions and the planning that what I was trying to do with them and can just as easily and much more happily be learned through…doing. So we are now up and running. It is still disorganized, and I am sure it will still seem out of control at times, but we will all be happier. And more productive.
