Sometimes when I hear a story I see a movie. I can't help it. It's not that I just get a nice visual representation, it's that my mind begins laying it out for shooting. Scripting begins, characters are sketched, back stories written, costumes chosen. Locations are scouted. Logistics of funding, legal rights, production, distribution are wrestled flat. Storyboards are created and compared and discussed and rejected. Through every single step the perceived soundtrack music pounds, sometimes the songs layered in a contrapuntal fugue. Hundreds and hundreds of metres of footage are shot. Discussions arguments camaraderie manipulations are had with developers cast crew. Everything that goes into the 25 minute to 2 hour colour envelope of sound that becomes the Film.

This is one of those stories. It starts half way down. Do a Ctrl-F for "Jake Macdonald".
