Shot Analysis: Think & Respond

I've been thinking how to best present this blog entry, because I've been looking for more ways to create interactivity within the production diary blog. So, we will be shooting some small scenes or presenting stills for your own responses next week (and hopefully the weeks following), and please tell your friends, family, and anyone else that might be remotely interested.

Critiques might include such topics as camera angles, lighting, characters, movement, etc. Or you can bring anything and everything right at me either through email or in the comments selection below.

Not only can this help me analyze what it is that I'm doing, but it may, just may, bring you closer into the world of Lambent Fuse by showing you some sneak peaks at how it might be filmed, or even parts of the film itself.

David and I have been going over a lot of the characters recently with some of the discoveries I've come across in my readings, and we believe that you may see some of that representation in the following posts.

We'd like to create as open a project as possible, so we'd love for your input.

Above is a taste. It's already a publicly available wallpaper, but go ahead and experiment. Click on the email: mcici@lambentfuse.com or open up a blank page and type all that you see (whether it's just a color or a person doing something) and email/post it to us. Write what you think is going on. Write what you think we're trying to say. If you want to post a video on YouTube (or the video uploading site of your choice) of your response, go ahead; just make sure to cite Lambent Fuse and send us a link. You can even do it on Twitter with an "@lambentfuse"! We'll be sure to feature your response on our page.

TV Show: Dexter
After seeing this show featured in Script, the magazine, I had to check it out. Especially since they talked about writing good character, and I have to say they were very true. Pick up Netflix if you don't have cable and/or Showtime, and the first two seasons are streamable (Watch Instantly).

Until next Tuesday, thanks for reading.
