I’m not near a scanner today. So can’t enter a drawing. I said daily diet of drawings – maybe I’ll change that concept soon, to include other ways of expressing about film and its making.
A couple of people have said they can’t read bits of my handwriting. A side of me doesn’t mind that – it’s part of the drawing. It has its character because it’s how I was feeling when I wrote it. But then there is part of me that would like the writing to be legible. So what I wrote in that moment can be understood.
Now I’m adding in text to subtitle my own words. I may add in commentary on what the drawing meant to me. If I can remember. Or if it feels relevant to do so.

I can see myself veering towards a three act structure
And I am sensing huge resistance
The horror of inevitability

Will I be allowed to make what I want?
Or me indeed..(me?)
Who chooses in this tuxedo world of ours?
But will my film stop the killing?
Stop the torment, the abuse?
Or just make my brain and heart alligned in visual and cognitive connection.

Grotowski said “do not talk about the process or the creation..as you are making it..Don’t go home and chat about your creative acts to your friend, family or strangers..”(something like that)
Whereas eager enthusiastic filmic folk who believe they have the next big ££$$ hit are desperate to blog, claim, sell, sell, sell when it’s just in the early stages all the way to completion.
To pitch public or meditate on the meaning. Refine and polish in the stillness of the studio (not big film $ studio) or home. That is the question of the day being a cold drab like Sunday 22nd of February 2009

OK missy it’s time to have an upbeat attitude
it’s time to remember that time you stopped worrying by the act of doing
what is the process of making feature film no. 3?
I wrote the script and I wrote it from the heart
I wrote it with an editor
Yes, a script editor, before I turned the camera on.
Sometimes the process was akin to intense psychoanalysis
but I loved it (each stage of the way is about enjoying the process)
