It's Time to Say Adieu

Hi, everyone. As you may have noticed, I’ve disappeared for the last couple of weeks and I am going to disappear for a much longer time. I’ve just finished shooting a 50-minute drama, which I wrote, directed, produced, and shot. The drama’s in editing and I’m starting to shoot a movie which I’m writing, directing, producing, and shooting. I thought I could do that, and, at the same time, keep writing the Storytellers articles. And I can’t. The water’s over my head. So it’s time to go.

These are the things we would have talked about during the next few weeks and won’t: We won’t talk about David Lynch and where emotions that have nothing to do with reality come from; we won’t talk about the Coen brothers and the way they describe human processes from the outside and never look from the inside to see what it feels like; we won’t talk about whether it’s good that Spielberg’s best movies are for kids or whether making scenes with The Hero and The Kids and The Dame rather than people with names comes from a dehumanized place; we won’t talk about Battlestar Galactica and the way everything in it fits the article I already wrote about Weeds; and we won’t talk about how David Mamet uses truth to hide the truth, even in the ending of his movies and plays.

Thank you, everyone. I hope you liked your stay. I hope you’ll like my movie. In the meantime, here’s a story I’m really proud of. Enjoy.


Oh, by the way, the movie’s name (for now) is Cold, Cold Heart. It’s science fiction. My executive producer says there’s going to be an IMDB entry in a few weeks. So if it pops up there, I’ll post a link to it as my last post (for you RSS-ers out there) so people can follow our progress.

Have fun with your new movie! I'll keep you in my RSS feed, and am hoping you'll come back eventually. I think you are well worth waiting for.

Thanks elkit, I appreciate it and I'm glad you liked the articles.

By the way, if any of you happen to be in Spain during the first week of November, I'll be a guest at Hispacon 2007, the SF convention there. Drop by, say hello.

I enjoyed the articles and hope you'll come back.
I have read some stories that you wrote and really liked them (hatchling, the dark side, her destiny, me(tm), the perfect girl and god's shadow (or how you call it in english)). They're too good to be read online for free.

And: Can you tell already where the movie you work on would air and when? Is there any chance I'll see it in Israel?

I very much enjoyed your blog. Your writing was thorough and eloquent. Many of the posts put into words the feelings I had experienced for a given movie or TV show or whatever. Here's hoping you return. You shall stay RSS'd.

Thanks Yonatan and Justin.

Yonatan, to know where and when the movie will show, keep up with the ISSFF site, which will probably inform everyone when the movie is ready and will probably be involved with the premiere.

And drop by ICon towards the end of September. We'll probably have an event about the movie as well as a scene or two and/or a teaser.

I look forward to reading you again.
