Making a movie is a long process filled with ups and downs. Along the way, it’s not uncommon to have fallow periods where the production schedule slows down and you find yourself in a lull.
I’m in one of those periods now.
It’s not necessarily a bad thing, but it can feel disconcerting at times, as if the whole project has suddenly gone off the rails. Fortunately, that’s not the case, and I’m using this downtime to evaluate where I am with the project, take stock of what I’ve done so far and strategize the next steps.
It’s partly why you haven’t heard from me in about a month. I try to look at these fallow periods as important times to allow the creative wellspring that is always at work in the unconscious, bubble away in the background. Sooner or later, some of that creative energy will rise to the surface or reach a point where I can no longer ignore it, at which point, I’ll be able to jump back in with renewed energy and enthusiasm.
So please hang tight as I take a little time-out.
In the meantime, for those of you who don’t follow the Facebook page here’s a short video clip from an extensive interview I conducted with Dr. Peter Gray at the end of August. It was a delightful experience to interview him and I hope you enjoy his words of wisdom.
Until next time,
