Dear Warner Executives,
Principal photography for The Proposal has ended. We now begin editing. I don't need to mention this but... editing makes a movie. The cuts made dictate pacing, tension and mood. Editing can polish your project, or kill it. I'm nervous about this. Having, for the last two years, been the purveyor of single shot photo-plays- my trigger finger may be a tad rusty.
In those who grew up cruising record stores, I've noticed a certain reverence for vinyl. When you talk about the state of music in the presence of these people, they get a far away look in their eye and declare that music has never been the same since, not just file sharing, but cassette tapes. They will be eager to tell you that nothing compares to walking into a record store, physically searching for an album in a series of long bins, taking it home and listening to it start to finish. They will also be quick to point out, that imperfection of sound is a grand part of the experience. That every pop and hiss creates a level of personality to the music that you can't get with iTunes. That this format for music, is perfect in its imperfection.
I recently read an article that examined the possibility of a new Twilight Zone film. However, instead of developing a film within the anthology format, they plan to do a Twilight Zone movie with a singular storyline and director.
So the video is as self explanatory as it gets, so I figured I'd talk about a few other things: It has come to my attention through the pages of Reddit, that this site is hard to read for some people. I will talk to my webmaster and see if we can come up with something new that is both stylish and readable. What do you guys think?
Remember when George Lucas released Star Wars and only gave us his special edition releases. That's fine, but to keep the originals from public consumption felt a little like he was holding them ransom.
