In the past few weeks, Sam and I have been busy, which should explain the lack of posts in the past 18 days. We’ve been watching a lot of movies, and have developed a newfound appreciation for the work of Wes Anderson.
We’re trying to write our next movie around a very Wes Anderson-esque concept, mainly about a group of people, or a team, basically about outsiders. It should be a very interesting experiment, trying to imitate a certain director, and hopefully something from which we should learn lots.
One of the best parts of a Wes Anderson film is his soundtracks. For those of you who don’t know, his soundtracks are usually composed of acoustic, classic rock, or brit-pop, plus a very good original score. We have made it a priority in this film to score the film ourselves, and try to stay away from any music which might lead to copyright troubles. After all, it is nice to have every single part of the film belong to the people who made it.
We are doing a huge amount of character work, compared with our last film, and have decided to cast purely character actors, which should also add to the final product(If any of you watch The Wire you’ll see why I think so).
So, we hope that I’ve now gotten anyone reading sufficiently curious in our next filmmaking venture. In other news, there should be a piece by Sean Newton being added to the writing section within the next couple weeks or so. I’ve been working on a play now for a couple months, and am nearly done. It’s a very different concept, and I’m excited to see if we can get it put on.
If any of you are curious about Wes Anderson, I encourage you to take a look at these interviews(Click here!), as they are quite a good introduction to him.
