3. Alright, now we are in the history corner
There was another 6 min video sketch in that spring, (not on line now) and then in the Fall of 2006 Iole created an original movie from her very own idea. She wrote the script (English is her 2nd language) and shot the video and edited it in Final Cut Pro for the 2nd semester Video class. (I've long since given up trying to get her back onto Final Cut Pro, and she has never edited anything else). It is 26 minutes.
Even with the obvious defects like minimal character development and lack of back story, etc. I always loved that movie. It was written totally out of instinct and not by training, just with hands on learning. I was the 3rd character, handyman, lighting, sound and logistics man.
That September I took the borrowed camera to Colorado and filmed the Neelam retreat, and in October to the John Sherman retreat. Sherman sold tons of those 10 DVD's that we made. Neelam didn't have any kind of "Commercial Organization, and those videos languished.
I took the Comcast Public Access certification that December after making this movie, (really for no reason)?? Later the public access morfed into NNH.
