This last week has been awesome in the production of my thesis film! I got 3 interviews, some good b-roll (which is essentially footage that doesn't necessarily portray main action and may be used to cover track or interviews) and additional photographs all on Saturday. Tuesday we got some leads on where we can get some more archival footage. Today we found some photos! Yes!
So I suppose this is where I tell you what my thesis film is about, huh? It's about the effect of the Civil Rights Movement on two black sisters who were active in Tallahassee and two white brothers who were active in Gainesville. Both sets of siblings were college students at the time.
I have two more assignments due: a complete rough draft of our script (about 40 pages) and a preview tape which will give our professors an idea of where the story's going. And I still need to organize my house before I desert it. And don't even get me started on how BADLY the movie-watching is going!!! Too bad I can't give up this daily blogging thing. To quote the great poet Jigga, "I WILL NOT LOSE."
