Your faithful narrator has been busy. I occupied this fallow, low income time with many projects. I finished the pilot episode to 1 of 2 TV series. I just worked a ton of long days editing together the whole 29 minutes, including graphics, intros, and even shooting some last minute greenscreen and studio work. Now on to the 2nd series pilot!
Sunny 95’s Dino Tripodis hosted the show for us and we had 5 distinct segments to the show. A Filmmaker Profile where we look at someone’s body of work and interview them, a Spotlight On segment where we look at a person or place or group and get a quick story on that, filmmaking tips, like the ones I’ve already made and that Scott Spears has made, then we go On Location for B-Roll heavy interviews with a movie during pre-production, production, or post-production and get an inside look, and finally my baby the Roundtable discussion.
Sometimes I can pull a rabbit out of a hat. I think I did that with the title sequence and intro to the show for sure, but possibly with the show as a whole. I was deeply inspired by the show VIEWFINDER in Cincinnati, but I wanted a completely different format, a magazine style show that went on location and legitimized the indie film movement as it is today. Scott came up with a great name for our show, FRAMELINES.
Here is the opening and title sequence for FRAMELINES
