From frontyard
Jump to: navigation, search

I’ve spent much of the last few years exploring improvised filmmaking — specifically, improvised long-take camera movement in documentary scenarios. For some time now, I’ve wanted to explore improvised long-take filmmaking with a more dramatic/narrative emphasis. I’ll spend the week at frontyard immersing myself in this field: seeking out materials (writing, interviews, films) that teach me about improvised acting in a narrative framework; fleshing out some potential dramatic/improvisatory scenarios; setting up conversations with actors and other filmmakers who improvise; and letting the contents of the frontyard library inform my ideas!
