The entries in this series are either taken verbatim or reconstructed from vague scribbles in the journals (three actually) that I’ve blitzed through since October working on my thesis film. Some are more personal than others. Some refer to thoughts refracted from production/theory/design/art history classes. Some are reflections on my faith and its intersection with my work. I am not a particularly public person but this exercise serves a few functions:
1. reclaims my journal entries from the quicksand of illegible handwriting and a porous memory.
2. constitues a “better late than never” gesture to friends who have heard little from me since September.
3. provides some circular answers to questions of process in making documentary films.
4. forces me to write- one can only hope that this is habit-forming.
