Off to Chicago… again.

So, this is a little test, though I have become so twittutionalized, I dont know if I will be able to break out of the 140 character limit… actually… I’ve just done it. So, that wasn’t so hard.

Im off to Chicago today. Yet another visit to check on the locations and plates we need to shoot of the Windy City. The majority of the film will be filmed in chilly Montreal, so our Chicago shoot will be taken care of by a second unit. That means I will not be there for it. Its the first time I have ever been in a situation where I will not be directing elements of my own shoot. Feels down-right odd, but just one of the many differences between shooting an indie and shooting something “through the system.”

I’ve been discovering lot of those differences lately… enough to write a book on them? maybe a pamphlet. Certainly enough to write a blog. Ill have to think about that one. Doubt I would have time to do that, anyway. We shall have to see. In the meantime, Chicago, here I come… again.

MOON ManMadeMoon Competition 2 Poetry Poster
ManMadeMoon Competition 2 Poetry Poster by Duncan Jones

With competition 1 such a success, but with a few twitterers feeling left out because of the drawing element in the first round, competition 2 focussed on poetry!  But not any old poetry… oh no!  Submissions had to poetically espouse their love for something geeky.

There were three finalists…

But there could only ever be one winner…

There would have been a fourth finalist, but it was a little too clever for its boots, trying to get around the rule cap of 100 words, by use of a sneaky title…

Archive MOON Competitions: 1 GERTY Face

So it all began way back in ancient times, when Competition 1 was launched. An art challenge to come up with a replacement face for Gerty, the robot in MOON. It came down to 8 magnificent finalists.

But there was so much goodness in the rest of the competition, it seemed only fair to share the best of the rest with everyone…

The winner was the incredibly amusing entry from Ranjit, that just tickled my funny-bone.
