i had a loooong day. it was supposed to be a film shoot day, but the first person gave me the wrong adress. so i rode the train for an hour, walked over a mile, and arrived in the middle of nowhere at a garden house thats for sale. super. then i had to go alll the way back to the train station, and take another bus and walk another mile to the second place. this lady was there, and i got a good 30 seconds of film, but all of her neihbors (who she had promissed to ask in advance) either had no time or didnt open their doors. i really dont know how i will be able to finish this film project. i have three scenes of 30 finished, have a week and a half till i need to turn it in. this is the big project, for tv.

I don't see any problem with going with just 3. I think the audience will get what you're doing.

Have you thought about interviewing people at the main station in Bremen??

no. because that doesnt work with my concept.. this isnt a dokumentary.. the idea is to show different people in their own apartments, watching the news (as if the camera were inside the tv screen)... and yes, i am bound to this concept by the powers that be.

i just a ate a toasted sandwhich. tasted like my future..

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your heart and mind in Christ Jesus. Phil. 4.6-7

We're praying. Mom. (.....what kind of toast?)

"The LORD Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.

Come and see the works of the LORD,
the desolations he has brought on the earth.

He makes wars cease to the ends of the earth;
he breaks the bow and shatters the spear,
he burns the shields with fire.

"Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth."

The LORD Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.
- Psalm 46:7-11

Well, maybe you should start knocking on people's doors at news time....
