What a day to be insulated from the machinations of the government and turmoil of its citizenry. I can only hope that calm and productivity will commence very soon.
What keeps me from even thinking about the political struggles of Capitol Hill is my focus on the life and death struggles in the Salish Sea. Working on a project like this means being immersed in its moving parts day-in, day-out, 24/7.
Right now, I'm filled with stories of fish and dolphin. From what I hear, it's a blessing, really, not to have the news of the day put me in a funk.
Life goes on... death and extinct don't slow down, even for Congress.
I've just finished the rough edit for a teaser trailer intended for fundraising.
It plays like a mystery, which is, after all, what the film is at heart. I am pleased with its look and now have given it into the hands of our composer, Peyton Winterowd-Laughman, who will score it.
This marks the first time as a filmmaker that I have not scored my own video. That's a frightening handing-off of creative control.
But Peyton is super-talented and I know whatever she'll do would be worlds better than my half-deaf, tin-eared attempt.
At some point soon I intend to update this site with a few short bio's of the crew. For now, just take my word for it, this film is benefiting from some of the most creative folks I've ever known.
