Thank You Everyone!

Thank you everyone! I asked for some help with some motivation, and so many people responded with comments, emails, and donations. I was really shocked to see a total of $480! Again, thank you everyone for all the great encouragements.

I was never going to stop working on Seoulistic.com. I was just looking for a little more motivation. And I definitely got it.

If you can still donate, that would be great! It would really help me keep motivated, and keep making good content!
If not, consider liking my facebook page, and Seoulistic.com’s facebook page. I’d appreciate your support! Thanks everyone!

Recording with Songa tomorrow. Wish us luck! :)

First day filiming obangsaek

Today was the first day I was on production and it totally exceeded expectations. I didn’t do much but boy was it a great experience. I learned a lot not just about just film but also the process of documentaries.

Documentaries are basically about life. Human relations. And yes, that is true for life, but the challenge of docmentaries is to capture that human relation. Whether it be on film, audio, pictures or even written form, it’s all about the capture of that relationship.

Instead of trying to artificially construe a situation, it’s all about capturing the essence of that relationship.

And even if you wanted to construe a situation or scene it’s still about capturing genuine opinions and thoughts. And the important thing there is to make people comfortable. And how do you do that? Simple. Human relations. Build a rapport with your subject and you’ll be in the clear because once you have that relationship everything is genuine.

Life lessons from the film industry!
