Remember in May where I showed you how the script was evolving on the wall of our spare bedroom? Well, the evolution continues!
As I work with Rita Meher on a rough cut of THREADS, one way that is helpful for me to visualize the different parts of the story and their relationships with each other is to take soundbites of the film footage transcript, color code them for which part of the story they represent, and see how they can best fit together. This format allows me to move segments around relatively easily and to visualize better how the story flows. In some ways, it reminds me of setting out the patterns and colors of a quilt.
Everyone has their own way of organizing the story they are telling. What is your favorite method?
