On scriptwriting.

Greetings Most Esteemed Readers,

I'm currently listening to Andrew Bird's 2009 release, Noble Beast. The artist will be in Nashville October, 10th. So will David Bazan, ex-front man for Pedro the Lion. Anyways, that was just a side note. The last few weeks have been very hectic and exciting. Since school started I have been, once again writing screenplays, shooting and spending long nights at the writing lab.

This past weekend, I helped Jayson Wall shoot a 30 sec P.S.A. for our production class. It was definitely a great experience. We shot with a green screen and with an HD cam. On scriptwriting, I have started writing for the Production I will be shooting on November, a 7 minute M.O.S (no dialogue) , short narrative film and I am having a blast. I enjoy the writing and the rewriting process so much. Through it, I really get to know my characters and what they are all about. Often, in the process of writing this screenplay, I have found myself in these characters, along with with some of my life experiences. In short, I have put a lot of me in screenplay and I find this a very odd and scary process.

Let Go and Let it be,
Jean-Michael Vissepo
