"A film is - or should be - more like music than like fiction. It should be a progression of moods and feelings. The theme, what's behind the emotion, the meaning, all that comes later." - Stanley Kubrick
We had our last round of treatment feedback this week, and will have a chance to follow this up with our mentors next week. Getting feedback from readers who are totally new to the project is a great advantage at this stage - many filmmakers on the course have been living with their stories for years rather than months, but even though this is a relatively fresh world for me it's been reinvigorating to hear from people who are coming to it for the first time.
Ok, I'm off to the panic room for a couple of months. Have a nice summer everyone. I will be spending mine in a dark room, wrestling criminals and housewives.
