My last narrative short, ‘the Omelette’ was a fun little project I did with a few very close friends. I was trying to tell a lot in the shortest amount of time possible. Basically, we have two characters, clearly have been together for a long time, that are stuck in the same cycle. My intention was that what you see played out in the two minutes, is something that is played out for all eternity.
It was a fun little project, and I had a lot of fun making it.
I’m getting very antsy, I just set the alarm clock to wake me up ten of four, so I can pack the car up and head out on the first stretch of my road trip. There are a lot of firsts for me on this trip, first off, I’ve never taken 5 days straight off from work. Second, I’ve never attended the inauguration of a President before. Third, I’ve never shared the process of making a film through a blog!
What you see here at vatchearabian.com/roadtripforobama.com are essentially pieces of what I’m going to make into a feature length documentary of the entire experience. What is most exciting about this project is the fact that I really have no idea how it will turn out. All I know is I’ve been inspired by a historical moment, and I’m leaving tomorrow to become a part of it.
The best way to get the most recent updates to the site is to follow me on Twitter. I’ll be doing a live Ustream tomorrow evening (most likely around 8:30pm), check back for a more accurate time.
Good night all, and see you bright and early tomorrow!
We got our first bit of press coverage for Road Trip for Obama today over at the Watertown Tab & Press. If you go to the Wicked Local Watertown blog, staff writer Christine Laubenstein did a great write up on some of our goals and plans for the project! Check it out and let us know what you think.
We’ve got some other things in the works so keep checking back daily for new content!
