Getting back to filmmaking

My favorite thing about the camera: it allows me to show the world what it looks like through my eyes. I am reading a terrific article that is whetting my appetite to get back into movie-making.

I've actually begun to think about writing again, meaning dialogue in terms of how it's written into a script:

Icabod takes her hand and continues gazing at her.

You know, I think I'm falling in love with you.

Aziza holds his gaze lovingly, tears welling up in her eyes. They squeeze each other's hands.

I feel like I'm going to burst with things to say, but just as I'm about to say it, nothing sounds right!

She laughs and then pauses.

I'm falling in love with you too.

She pauses again, this time breaking his gaze for the first time in several minutes to look down at their clasped hands.

We have to take it slowly though. I feel so happy right now...

She raises her head to look into his eyes again.

... and yet I also feel cautious. You understand.

Icabod nods, closing his eyes briefly before returning her gaze intensely.

Yes I do. It's ok, I feel the same way.

Hidden in the shadows behind another tree, peering at the two lovers, Lilian watches wide-eyed and open-mouthed. She is surprised and stands transfixed watching the scene play out.

Mutters quietly to herself.
Oh my God... oh my God, she finally went through with it!!!
