When I was in grade school my friends and I took turns making questionnaires for each other to fill out. One of my favorite things to do was to answer someone else's questions and think of things to ask them and then read their answers because they were almost always completely surprising in one aspect or another.
Which is biographical info which I am not supposed to put in my description but I think it explains why I said most of what I was going to say while constructing the FAQ for One Last Ditch: the movie.s. So most of the informative information is down below. Briefly, what I am doing is making videos out of the poetic pieces I wrote for One Last Ditch, which was published last year by Atelos Press. I have made three so far or that is I have made five but the first two were boring and so do not count so I have made three interesting ones and you can find them at the book's website, onelastditch.com. You'll find the book there too, and you might even find a pleasant surprise.
What I plan to do is pretty much what I have been doing only with better equipment, both hardware like and software like, so that the videos might stand a chance of being screened on something larger than a 15" LCD backlit monitor. For that I need outside funding because I am a man of no means. I would also like to be able to travel a bit and shoot a few frames outside of the city of San Francisco not because one could ever exhaust this place of possible images but because I tend to obsess on the fog and you all can only take so much fog.
Have a look at the videos I beg you. One can be found attached to the video above and the others wait for you at onelastditch.com and I know I said that already but two links are better than one. If you can and want to give please do so. My project expires in 45 days which believe me will go by a whole lot faster than it used to so if you can pledge now, pledge now. At least, I know what happens to all those tabs I leave open to look at more closely "someday" and it involves clicking little x's with regret and resignation. Time is infinite. We are not.
On to the FAQ!
