The Trailer!

Heed me, all ye who possess eyes to see, ears to hear, a mind to appreciate, and an internet connection. I draw your attention to MTV Geek, where the trailer for The Rook has premiered! It is out there, a jewel shining in the ether, at http://www.mtv.com/videos/misc/721408/the-rook-trailer.jhtml

I am just immeasurably pleased with this little film. I scripted a bit of it, but so much has come as a complete, and welcome, surprise. Things I never would have thought of. In fact, the basic idea of the story came from the director. It really is the creation of extremely clever people who aren’t me. And I want to make certain that their efforts and their talents are acknowledged. Accordingly, I give you the team behind the film:

 

Ben Hughes — Director, Editor, Producer (http://www.benhughes.com/)

Jamie Carreiro — Director of Photography (http://vimeo.com/maven)

James Van Eyck — Production Assistant

Nancy Noto — Receptionist (http://hellomynameisnancy.tumblr.com/)

With special thanks to Adam Lytle at Greencard Productions (http://www.greencardnewyork.com/)

 

I urge you to hie yourself to MTV Geek immediately and view the trailer.

Of course, in due course, the trailer shall be placed upon this very website, where it will reside for all time, to be viewed by humanity. Just as soon as I have figured out how that is to be done. (In reality, that means bothering my web guru, Jeremiah Tolbert.)

  1. First off I want to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question
    which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I have had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Thanks!

      Generally, just before I start writing, I’ll review the stuff I wrote the day before. It brings me up to speed on where I am, and helps to get me into the right voice and mindset. But on some days, it takes me quite a while to get into gear. Thing is, when I come back to later, I usually have a lot of trouble picking out which parts I liked as I wrote them, and which parts I had misgivings about.
