Most kind, sir. Thank you.
If anything, I try to think: "What would such and such a director do? Or, how would such and such an actor say this?"
But, sometimes I do run into technical hiccups....like when the program (iClone) starts to bog down (because I start thinking a bit TOO epically...lol...but now I'm finding other workarounds to accommodate my imagination) and I have a rough time getting the timing down for certain shots, and then I end up doing a retake, after thinking the problem through.
I've had some great (although they don't know it) teachers on the technical and writing side. George Lucas (for sheer visual style), Jim Cameron (for visuals AND attention to detail), Nicholas Meyer and Ridley Scott (for pacing), Tom Clancy (writer, for detail and realism).
