Creative Partnership

Creative Partner: George Nwosisi
For documenting our Creative Partnership, me and George Nwosisi decided start making video documentaries, documenting the whole process showing how we got from ideas to fully formed short film concepts, we do have some footage but aren’t done editing, it’ll be ready be ready for the end of the project These are a few comments, we made on each others blogs… In a response to my initial idea posts George commented.. George Nwosisi All you ideas for you stroy gives me the creeps. I like the idea of the 5th one down. you could tweek this up by making him work in the concert hall or he has a sceret lair there and hes an undercover mental surgeon, blending peoples brains and drinking it to make him more intelligent or something. But good ideas bro keep them coming In a response to George’s initial idea post I commented.. Akinbiyi Babarinde I love the direction this is going, the point when the kid looses control of the gun has a lot of comical potential, maybe a little bit more could be done at the ending, something that links the beginning to the end somehow. Out of the three ideas you’ve posted so far this has the most potential, working on the beginning and thed ending could do a lot for what you have going on here.
