I’ve been wanting to make documentaries for a while now. Over the past several years I have gotten more and more bored with traditional scripted films and documentaries have easily replaced them as some of my favorite late-night viewing.
Last week, while talking to my friend Jason DeVault, he mentioned how he had just purchased an HD video camera and a boom mic and wanted to do some filming. We started talking about documentaries and, after pitching a few ideas around, settled on the possibility of approaching a specific local individual as our subject. Why did we choose this particular person? Well, for a number of reasons; but it can be mostly illustrated by checking out one of the many signs she regularly displays outside of her house and on her car:

Granted, any possibility of moving forward with this particular project is a couple of weeks off. DeVault is going to buy some professional lighting gear and, well, we haven’t yet approached our intended subject. But I have confidence that, once we are ready to go, we’ll put together a small team (which hopefully will include my pal Bobby) and do a pretty good job of telling an interesting story about a fascinating local personality.
Stay tuned for future updates on this exciting project!
