Re: Making a short film, hopefully featuring Aikido (DC, No. VA area)
I hope it is not a documentary about budo per se. I am really not up for being that serious about things and the amount of research and meticulous detail that would have to go into such an endeavor.
I am more interested in the creative aspects of doing a simple plot/story and simply having a good time experimenting with different things. For me it would be about having fun.
I just finished watching "The Good, the Bad, The Ugly" haven't seen it in years, but wow, what a film!
Also, Seven Samurai. I like the cinematography, the capture of the essence of feeling, culture, storyline.
I think with an HD camera and some creativity it could be fun!
