Disappointed, because an event I wanted to film at wasn’t all it seemed. (And by all it seemed I mean we didn’t even see the inside, because of poor planning on the event planner’s part.) Shane is a brand ambassador for an up-and-coming clothing label called NYCLabRats. They had a booth there, and I wanted to really just wing it and film it and see what happened. Everything did not go as planned, but as I’m thinking about it, maybe thats a good thing. The event didn’t really pertain to the overall theme I want to explore, so everything works out for a reason.
As for POV, I want it to be a film that focuses on the focus and dedication it takes to follow your dream. Because of that, I’m thinking about it being from my perspective, not only as the person holding the camera but also the girlfriend who’s, in many ways, fascinated and constantly surprised by his talent as both a lyricist and a recording artist. That could have an emotional impact on viewers. I also feel that way about it being through Shane’s POV, but he’s said to me he doesn’t want to focus on his own personal hardships he’s endured, but instead about the things he’s creating.
