Busing Movie 2.0

Here is a rough cut of my work in progress.  This semester has been a whirlwind of personal and professional accomplishments, and the fruits of my labor are being received very well. If you know anyone that would be able to contribute to this project in any way (interviews, archival footage, information, friend of a […]

Busing Movie 1.0

In all projects there is a learning curve.  I’ve put off showing this video for some time now, because it is amateurish at best.  However, I am hoping that you will be interested in seeing my development aesthetically and narratively.  As always, please feel free to provide feedback, and contact me if you have any […]

The Fine Cut

So I found myself sitting at the editing station last night thinking to myself, “If I keep changing things up like this, I’m really going to mess up this video.”  In other words, “You’ve got your fine cut, idiot.  Stop tooling around.” I read an article about the video game Duke Nukem.  This was a […]

When All The Shooting’s Done

The past few days have been a whirlwind for me.  I’ve been spending almost 12 hours a day editing (when I’m not writing my paper), and every night when I’m done editing, I come up with a list of clips I need to shoot to insert the next day. This begs the question:  When do […]

Narration 4: Take 2

After showing my ending to my professor, he gave me some good advice:  If I’m going to use this film as a demo for my thesis, I should probably give a less bitter ending (of course what happens when people read these blogs?)  It makes sense, though.  I didn’t script this final narration.  Instead, I […]

Narration 4

Trying to write these narrations has been tough.  When I first started out, I was trying to think of a political way to say everything, but that is really just not me.  Eventually I wrote this part as a response to the rough cut screenings I showed at Emerson. A lot of people told me […]

Narration 3

I am going to introduce this part just after my media segment.  I was having difficulty joining the talk about the media to a segment where they talk about a Haitian cab driver in Southie (somehow there’s always a Haitian anecdote hovering around me). I’m a pretty stubborn guy, so I don’t want to start […]

Narration 2

This is the second narration segment in my piece.  I think it will be very long, so I’ll probably have to cut out some things.  I showed it to some people, and some thought that it gave a good background to where I was coming from, but others that that it was pandering for acceptance […]

Narration 1

With the lack of a diverse perspective, I have decided upon reflection – and feedback – that I should insert myself into the story.  This is a very difficult decision for certain filmmakers – especially when it was not their intention when they started on their project.  I am going to post several “journal entries” […]

The Artistic Flavour

Now that I’m starting to get my ducks in a row for my thesis project (Busing in South Boston during the 1970’s), I’m really starting to consider how I want the look of this piece to be.  Like many documentaries, this story will be captured over the course of atleast two years, shot with different […]
