In the previous week, Mr.Alan published what he titles “The Buzz” on his film festival blog. To enlighten those who are not aware of what The Buzz entails, Mr. Alan ranks each crew by beverage. The more caffeine, the better the flavor, and the bigger the size, the better the ranking is. Unfortunately, upon reading the Buzz we discovered that we are ranked at a raspberry lime rickey. It is unclear whether the ranking is of quality, hype or potential nominations; however, we do know that here at the Clementine Corner, the home of avid coffee drinkers and hard workers, this mediocre ranking does not hold true value nor accurately depict the ranking we deserve. As Mr.Alan analyzes our film in the buzz, Mr.Alan states that we are “flying under the radar” and that this is our “first directing stint”. Although the Clementine Crew does not need ranks or validation to know our hard work will pay off, we are quite disappointed that Mr. Alan would rank our movie without seeing a finished product or an edited scene.
None the less, the Clementine Crew has been working exceptionally hard these past few weeks. On Tuesday of vacation, we spent a long day of filming at the school from 8:30 until 3:30 and filmed a dream sequence with Mr. Imbusch using our new 50mm lens. On Wednesday we set up an intricate fantasy football set in Mr.Hahn’s office and we were able to film with Mr. Hahn until his daughter decided it would be alright to just puke in the middle of day care. Then they kicked her out. Poor kid, tough day. We were still productive that day and filmed a fight scene between Gavin and Adande. Jack and Matt’s acting has been steadily improving and they are really getting into character. On Thursday we worked on a dopesauce set for the Mr. Connor’s Corner dream sequence and Remy did a great job of getting shots of Matt, Heanue and Erica that we needed to complete some scenes. Finally on Friday we finished the set for Mr. Connors Corner and filmed that dream the majority of the day. (Side-note: Matt and Jack dressed sauve AF for that scene).
We have been dominating in music trivs and are as good looking as always. We hope to all be at the basketball game tomorrow, and TURN DOWN FOR NOTHING.
