I want this project to start, but I'm stuck as you know. What is really strange is that I want the project to take off so much, that I just wanna go into the quickest forest and start shooting, I want to do the behind the scenes documentary of it, but I can't because the script is nowhere near ready.
And the simple reason is I still imagine a impossibly great film. I have set the bar WAY to high. And its difficult to tune it down. But I have no choice, because I'm wasting time, I could already have moved on to other projects by now, if I just started making the film as soon as I began writing in 2013.
But there is still hope. I have a lot of ideas. And I just need to decide which direction.
I could just go into the forest and start filming... no script... no preperation... just me and my camera.. my new Panasonic G7.
Ah, yes, my new G7. I'm very pleased with it. Even if it is costing me the leg and arm. The camera itself wasn't that expensive. But the lenses, I got a 14-42 and a 14-142. Missed my canon 50mm F1,8, but then I tried something. I ordered a adapter from China, so I could use canon ef-s lenses on my panasonic G7 (micro four-thirds), and you know what? worked like a charm. i have to manually focus, but with the focus peaking in the camera, its really easy these days to manually focus.
Its fun to play with the new camera, but I just feel stupid, not being able to get started on my project.
Made me start thinking, maybe I should just copy "the revenant" and just shoot a movie about a guy trying to survive in the forest. Seemed to work for Alejandro and Leo, as far as prestigious awards go.
