Living with geeks really lives…really!

Wow! There’s tons of new stuff going on for the project! in work! in life!

CEO of a regionally top-3 tech firm just confirmed to interview along with her hub; we’ve been talking about that since December;

I’m a contractor for a great education association which in the next few months may include video production (a surprise opportunity)!

SMU honors a very good friend this weekend in Dallas. Friends will converge there this week to celebrate with her. Can’t wait!

McDreamy & McSteamy interview for ‘Living with Geeks’ ! ! !

HA!

Good pal Sebastian, smart but still a loser for not blogging, makes fun of his wife & me for our almost dignified crushes on the Grey’s Anatomy cast. With his geeked-out wit in stellar form, he wrote this sketch with our crushes & recent ‘geek’ interviewee – Scobleizer – in mind:

-FADE IN-

Jill: So tell me Dr. Scoble

Scoble: Actually, I’m not a doctor. I used to be a Microsoft Technical Evangelist, and now am Vice Pres…

Jill: Just shut up, please. You’re so interrupting my McDreamy sequence right now.

Scoble: Not certain what that refers to, but I thought we were here to talk about serious issues like…

Jill: No, I don’t suppose a geek like you would know about McSteamy and his fantastic abs, would you Scooby? And this is important, thank you very much….[starts humming loudly]

Jill, still humming & ignoring Scoble completely: You’re not here only McDreamy and McSteamy and me…

-FADE OUT-

That’s called mccrushing the mccrush!

Geeks & non-geeks welcome: Podtech to honor vlogosphere with Vloggies

Richard Hall just might win…

at Podtech’s event next week: THE VLOGGIES!

Check out this year’s nominees (& Richard Hall’s competition). -Great ideas & diversity as deep as the web itself.

PROJECT UPDATE:
This past week, I’ve been forcing the Scoble interview to be an independent segment for the project — when there’s just not enough there to do the Scobles or the storyline justice. So instead, some of the footage will be cut into a promo piece (…to better explain the project to prospective interviewees).

Using the web enables your documentary

I so love my project blog even if only my husband & folks read it. …Ok maaaaaybe a wider audience would trip my trigger.

But this blog helps focus & refine direction. Updating it pushes me to conquer that sense of idea-possessiveness e.g. that suffocating angst where ‘no one can have my idea therefore no one can criticize it’. This blog helps move past that self absorption and onto – ideally – gaining useful feedback from readership.

…a way to exchange ideas & grow the project.

Docs Interactive, apart of GWU’s Documentary Center, makes a good point on how a web presence can help spark buzz and awareness for a film project or concept.

I think ‘blog’ is a more current, applicable term for this article’s premise; but I say ‘web’ for this post since the article’s authors rely on that usage. I found the documentary sites referenced in it useful (as well as the emphasis on filmmaker responsibility when finding an audience).

UPDATE:
I interview both Kelly & her geek-spouse early November. The footage should be more well-rounded by portraying spouses independent from and together with their mates.

Reviewing interview footage, rush logs, & Tiger Woods

To documentary fans or golf fans or life fans…: Has anyone seen this documentary on Tiger Woods?

…still making rush logs & treatment ideas for the project’s three un-cut interviews for the project e.g. second one for Kelly (spouse of network engineer), first of Kerry (wife of IT manager), & Maryam (the wife of Scobleizer…who joined his wife for the interview too).

Short-term goals to achieve pre-Thanksgiving are set: make 3 more trailers, cut the Scoble interview as a self-contained segment, & schedule at least 3 to 5 more interviews.
