last night i had the incredible honor of being invited to come and guest teach a class at USC’s School for the Cinematic Arts. my good friend and colleague Jim O’Keeffe teaches one of the first-year undergrad production sections, and wanted me to share with his class about some of the emerging technology stuff i’ve been prattling on about. i found some public parking near campus and dodged all the cyclists on my way to the new $178m facilities. the new George Lucas building is gorgeous, like something out of an Indiana Jones movie.
parabolos is well into pre-production on Sleepwalking, a 20-minute short film that serves in many ways as a great test run for a lot of the processes we’ve been developing for a while. we’re working out the kinks in protocol, advertising, communication… and we’re one of the few groups of people i know actually using google wave. it’s still in beta, but has become a great tool for us. i really hope google and apple can keep their relationship amicable. that would make me a happy little filmmaker.
you can click on the link above for a teaser site. featured near the bottom is the paypal Donate button; if you’d like to contribute to our film production, we’d gladly thank you! i’ll posting every now and then over the next few weeks with updates about the production, and we’ll have a full website for the film up and running before too long.
