Just reading a book by Charles Bukowski. His writing style is so unique - kind of makes you depressed but its addictive. the man is a mad drunk but a helluva writer. Francis Ford coppola made a film in 1987 with micky rourke after seeing the trailer, it joins my list of films to see... heres a quote from bukowski advising aspiring writers and poets about inspiration and creativity:

"What do you do? How do you write, create?" You don't, I told them. You don't try. That's very important: not to try, either for Cadillacs, creation or immortality. You wait, and if nothing happens, you wait some more. It's like a bug high on the wall. You wait for it to come to you. When it gets close enough you reach out, slap out and kill it. Or if you like its looks you make a pet out of it.

A likely Storyboard

Just working on my storyboard for Monday's shoot. When we filmed our short at uni the other week and a storyboard certainly came in handy! I also came across a storyboard in Hitchcock's classic 'Psycho' it was created by the legendary Saul Bass who created the iconic title sequences to films such as "the man with the golden arm', 'Vertigo' and more recently 'Cape Fear' and 'Goodfellas'.
