Documentary 4

I was thinking about the structure of the documentary for episode four, and I thought it would be good to reflect on it a bit with you all.

The one reason I’m really excited about the 4th episode of the Laws, is because as far as the documentary segment goes, its going to be the most difficult ( to edit and shoot), yet interesting and thrilling at the same. Instead of following one artist around like the past three episodes, Donny, Robert, and I are following the production as a whole. This means interviewing Guy ( as the guy who came up with the original idea ), Ashe as a production manager, Donny, Robert, and I as documentary crew, artists, etc.

I have to admit, from the start I thought it would be an interesting idea to have followed everyone behind the scenes (for both S4R and The LAWS). Following Guy, Robert, and Elena was fun, don’t get me wrong. BUT, there is little known about the actual CREW and what we’re all doing. Space 4 Rent and The LAWS have been pretty much separated the whole Spring Quarter, and for sake of transparency, would have been the most effective way to know how we’re all putting on the show.

Editing has yet to start, since Episode 3 is just about being wrapped up, but I think this will be the documentary crew’s strongest piece. I know I’m terribly excited to start editing it, and if any of you have suggestions as far as technical aesthetics or simple structure, please let me know.

As the lead editor, this will be the last thing I’ll be work on before graduation. I want it to look good.
