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!
I can’t wait to post more footage for Living with Geeks! Tremendous stories await their day!
‘Sup with you?
Join us this Thursday for an all out production soiree.

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:
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…
That’s called mccrushing the mccrush!
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.
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).
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).
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.
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.
