November 14th, 2005 by David Pavlosky

It's been a busy day today. At nine-thirty this
morning I finished the storyboard for my short
"Connections." The scene takes place in a stairwell
where the signal is inconsistent and causes two
strangers to meet. I will shoot with Layla and Alanna
first thing tomorrow morning.

Two fellow filmmakers screened their films and several
others left to shoot this afternoon. The classroom is
a constant hub of activity. In class we screened
"Close Up" with Abbas Kiorastami--it is a fantastic
film. Mr. Kiarostami reminded us that when we are
shooting that the performances of our actors should be
captured and not be representations of the characters
they are playing--something to keep in mind on
tomorrow's shoot.

In the early evening Martin Scorsese joined us and we
could easily see the energy and passion that he has
both in his work, and obviously in his life. He was
warm and generous with insight and life experience. It
was a class that could have easily continued well into
the morning had his scheduled allowed. It was both an
indescribable and unforgettable experience.
