Camera rolling and action…
– Crew meet up for the first time in UCSD, including: Actor/actress, director, lead and support camera man, post production.
– Confirmed with one lead camera woman.
– Confirmed with one more post-production resource.
– Confirmed with two support camera man.
Reached out to UCSD Visual Arts department to recruit some volunteers for the film project. With Terezu’s help, we got in touch with a few student talents in Theater & Dance.
Lunch with local film making talents. To discuss on:
– Experience available and additional experience needed;
– Equipment available;
– Game plan;
Talked with a few people and received some ideas:
- Might want to expand the theme to cover many types of conflicts within an American family, across culture, across generation, even across religion. A lot of people might be able to relate to easily.
- Might be a good idea to start with a documentary, interviewing couples/families, talking about their distinctive perspectives, because of the culture/background they are from.
- Will utilize Robyn’s art night to get more people’s input
- Will talk to Ann about her own experience in raising her children in a multi-cultural family;
- Will look for opportunities for grant application to make a longer film (30min), and potentially submit to local short film festivals.
- Will look to involve film school students in UCSD for acting resources.
