Making A Film: The ‘Crude’ Feedback

Making a documentary film is an interesting process. You interview people and then head to the editing room. In some ways I felt for my interviewees as they had no idea what to really expect once they talked to me. Oh sure they knew how I thought, had read my books, etc., but it was still a risk on some level for them. One of my interviewees, someone in the film, texted me a few minutes ago with a rather crude compliment that contrasted my film with Michael Moore’s new film. His quick and dirty (literally) feedback:

“But you tell them what to do about it. Moore tells them to xxxx on big daddy government’s xxxx.”

Thanks! I am wondering if my prior post inspired his language!

  3. “Awareness of a problem” leads to solutions, albeit a different solution for each individual. Systemic Change begins with each individual pursuing his own self interest. It cannot be imposed from the outside.
