You can only watch so many of these before you mess up and blow the mortagage money on a rack of your own. Lord help me.

If you’re interested in this stuff save yourself the trouble of an interlibrabry loan and grab a terrible scan of Formalized Music.


  • Listened to this No Film School podcast on the way home from visting the family. It’s an inspiring discussion on how to make documentary films, from writing funding proposals to working with editors and submitting to festivals such as DOC NYC.

  • I’ve been writing again after following the simple steps I found in Teresa’s copy of Writing Down the Bones by Natalie Goldberg. Here’s her instructions for a timed writing period:

  1. Keep your hand moving. (Don’t pause to reread the line you have just written. That’s stalling and trying to get control of what you are saying.)
  2. Don’t cross out. (That is editting as you write. Even if you write something you didn’t mean to write, leave it.)
  3. Dont worry about spelling, punctuation or grammar. (Don’t even care about staying in the margins and lines of the page.)
  4. Lose control.
  5. Don’t think, Don’t get logical.
  6. Go for the jugular. (If something comes up in your writing that is scary or naked, dive right into it. It probably has lots of energy.)
