Today we had a shoot at Live Well Studio for our Kickstarter trailer for Vignettes of Interesting Women. We shot on the RED One, amazing 4k resolution camera. I had some great help from Eric Buist and Carlos Zuniga. The pictures from the event are from Carlos, and Eric is the best AC in Corvallis.
For this project I asked women to send me stories about anything they would like and we were going to turn them into something we can film. I got asked a lot about what type of story I was looking for. My answer was it can be anything. My official statement was this.
So, an idea, not necessarily THE idea, but an idea, inspired by my wife (yay!):
“Vignettes of Interesting Women.” It’s an art film. About women. What I’d love is to have women write stories, memories, impressions of their lives and send them to me. They can be real or inspired by something real. They can be deep, passionate, sad, happy, mundane, goofy…whatever. I’d just like to make a film of glimpses into the lives, minds and hearts of women. I realize this might be asking something personal or sensitive. I promise to handle it with tender love and care and the thoughtful advice of my wife. I will make dramatic interpretations of the stories, so they may not be exactly biographical (unless you specifically state that you want the facts out there, and then I’ll be very true to your story). So, if you’re willing to put a thought, story, memory or idea out there to the world, I would love to consider it for a scene in this film of snippets from the inner lives of women of all ages and backgrounds. Every submission will be kept confidential, and I won’t use your material without express written permission.
So I got some pretty powerful stories and some great ideas came from them. We are going on quite the journey to tell these amazing and very interesting stories. So I hope that you can stay tuned to the blog and look for updates as they come. I will be working on the trailer and our kickstarter page to help raise funds for the project. I would really like to be able to raise enough to tell the world about the lives of these amazing women.
Thanks for reading.
