I helped cut a trailer for a documentary film for the first time yesterday and I didn’t flinch once!
In all seriousness, though, I didn’t appreciate the growth process of the past two years of my life until I sat down and watched that trailer. I’ve branched out into a whole other skill set, something I never really formally trained for or planned for.
Armin Nasseri and I are working on a documentary about George Hobbs, a lifelong prop master in the movie business, who’s pursuing his passion for art. We put a preview trailer together today for distributors.
Frankly, I didn’t know what to expect. When you do fictional narrative, you have a script. You know what’s coming! With a doc, it seems, it’s a lot more like picking from beauteous fragments, because you just don’t know or can’t guarantee what will be said or not said.
I was pleasantly surprised!
I just started doing interviews two years ago and the opportunity to do in-depth interviews with George has been amazing. We’re still shooting this amazing project. Expect it to come out in 2020!
