I had planned to write about something else today, but an action I took yesterday needs addressing.
I needed a poster for TLAU; I turned to my talented friend Jordan Knight to knock one out. This is what she sent me – according to my specifications:
Gorgeous, isn’t it? She nailed it. I was very, very proud of the tagline. Very. Proud. So much, that it was all I cared about.
Later that day, I looked at it again. The bottom bothered me – my name was large and out there… and then, it hit me.
Where was the cast? The DP? The production team? The composer?
I had left out my team. I had put myself out there, and buried them in the clouds and the darkness.
I posted on Facebook “I kinda feel like a dick,” a statement that provoked a lot of hilarity.
But I do. I do feel like a dick.
Therefore, the poster is down. Ms. Knight is hard at it again, fixing my flubbery.
Film is a collaborative medium. It’s not MY series – it’s ours.
Now, go write.
