Re: CafeFights.com <-- still happening
- Jamie & Production AllStars,
Well, that CafeFights project got de-railed a bit as I went off with
Clif Ross (from class) and we shot tapes for a month in Venezuela.
He's still down there (another 3 months), and his first film
'Venezuela: Revolution from the Inside Out' is now out on Netflix.
He shot his first film (a feature documentary) on a small handheld
mini-DV camera, entirely on auto-focus and auto-exposure!!! What's
shocking is that film looks pretty good, is well edited, and overall
was a pretty good 'insider's look' into life in Venezuela.
(So don't give up hope you yourself if you have a subject to film!!!
Just do it!)
Anyway, my CafeFights.com project is still alive, but needs more
shoots. If people are interested working on this here, let me know!
It's a great way to blow off steam AND rant in public. Looking to
collaborate & experiment.
I'm off to New York this Sat for 1 week, hope to shoot an episode there.
PEACE - Ari
