Monday Milestones

Crossing another milestone.


Putting my feature film ~

a dark-ish drama

into the hands

of

someone

that I love.


To hear their criticisms.

To see, feel, hear

their reaction.


I sit here typing...

as

they

sit

there

reading.


IT's an interesting process.

Nerve wracking,

but interesting none the less.

Trying to pretend I'm not paying attention

to their facial expressions.

But thinking ~

facial expressions must mean they're feeling something, right?!?


Hearing their occasional

out loud

chuckle,

guessing to myself

"what page are they reading?"

and

"what scene?".


Have I written something comical

that

I didn't even realize

was actually funny?


I guess I'll find out later,

when we discuss.


After a Table Read of my feature film

in my class

last term...

Table Read being

when you put your heart and soul

(YOUR WRITING)

on the table

and everyone has the opportunity to critique it

and potentially rip it apart.


Potentially Scary? For sure.


Anyhoo,

I had someone tell me

that my feature film

script

was

heavy

and

that

they were triggered.


I'm sorry for that.


But...

at the very least

I know that

the

content

made you feel.


And Isn't that what

the art

of

film

is all about?
