Portraits BTS Ep1

Behind the Scenes of Portraits of Melbourne

Here is a behind the scenes look at the first episode of Portraits of Melbourne. I interviewed Ella Cannon after we had finished recording her voice-over, and her thoughts on the content are pretty much how I feel about it all. I am hoping to get around to doing a "commentary" of sorts at some point in time. Perhaps something that deals with the philosophical foundations of...

What We Seek Is Found Within

Well it's live! The first episode of my narrative project Portraits Of Melbourne. Below are a couple of  screengrabs, which I posted to instagram as I was editing - http://instagram.com/clarkescott I have an open plan for this project to grow into something larger than it currently is and if this were to happen each of these episodes will be the backstory for each character.

Raw and Exposed

  It's a scary place to open yourself up to only hear silence. But unless your willing to live in that space, as raw and exposed as it is, you will continue to remain unfulfilled. Do not hide your heart. Your pain. Your love. Rather,  live life at 11. Raw. Exposed. Alive!    ...

Musing on Love

Over the weekend I finally got a good chunk of silent time to sit with the story of Boy Chases Girl. The story, for the most part, has lived in note books and parts of it in script format for a while now. But over the weekend I wanted to map the inner emotional sub-text to physical actions as a test of the functionality of...

Anthony Minghella on Morality in Cinema

As evidence of this I present to you a lecture given by Minghella only days after winning the academy award for The English Patient. I believe in what he says. Indeed I think you should too. As...

In the End All We Have is Love

  As you go through life some begin to realize that, in the end, whether you like it or not, we lose everything—money. health. status. friends. While for others this fact is lost of them and as a result they can spend the time they have left wondering why! Even bitter at the lost. This is not a judgement but rather an observation. Still it seems to...

2014 – A Year of Continued Commitment

Be a traditionalist on the one hand; and a non-conformist on the other. This is the way to discovery. I believe tradition is important as it is the foundation of proper practice. We need teachers. We need mentors, and guides along the way, because we need to be shown the what and how of any skill we wish to develop. Yet at some point one must move...

Late Bloomers

As I was waiting for a ride to the family Christmas dinner I sat down to watch a little something and came across this—an interview with Writer/Director David O. Russell—The Fighter, Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jcr_xlDR5dg Interesting. Inspiring. In this video Russell mentions he is ten years behind his age in terms of maturity. I do not believe he means to say he is immature, but rather...
