Dynamic Lethargy Films

I’ve been working on two projects, although it is really a piece of work I need to do for both of them. It isn’t going well. My primary project is a retrospective of my late wife to show family and friends. The other project is called “Brief Moments of Tranquility”. Both of these use videos… Read Article →

One of the issues I have with recording a lot of voice work for “The Barrier” is the cost of renting a studio and recording engineer. I wonder if I can do that on my own. I did my own voice over recording for “Who Shot the President”, “My Next Film”, and the original version… Read Article →

While I would like to just dive into one or another of my projects, I need to get some rather mundane pieces of work out of the way. It isn’t very inspiring work and some days I just want to rest and relax. This week I   got started on a catalogue of all my videos…. Read Article →

During the last part of my wife’s illness I dropped all my writing and filmmaking projects. I want to get back to them now. It isn’t just that I want to work on them; I feel that I need something to focus on now that she is gone. Retrospective One project I want to do… Read Article →

My movie “Contingency” (http://dynamiclethargyfilms.ca/filmlist/contingency/) will be shown at the $100 Film Festival 25th Anniversary Retrospective next Wednesday, March 22, 2017. http://www.100dollarfilmfestival.org/festival/retrospective/ I made “Contingency” as a retrospective on the festival for the 20th festival in 2012. It looks back at the festival and the films I made for the festival over the years. I did the film… Read Article →

I redid a poster that I have on a wall in one scene of “The Barrier” this week. The poster isn’t a big element of the story, but it is a detail that some people might find distracting if it doesn’t look right. In the open house scene Arthur stands in front of a poster… Read Article →

I restarted my rewrite of “The Barrier” this week. My family responsibilities took precedence over my movie for the last few weeks. It had been a while since I looked at the rewrite, and I found that I had changed my mind about what I wanted to go with it. Most of the effort I… Read Article →

Slow Progress on the “The Barrier” I did a little on “The Barrier” this week. My wife’s illness has progressed and that is a higher priority for me than this project, so I don’t expect to have much time for “The Barrier”. It’s been at least a month since I did any work on “The… Read Article →

Recently I read that some scientists think that there may be planets more suitable to life than Earth. How does this relate to the Fermi Paradox? What is the Fermi Paradox? The Fermi Paradox comes from a question that the physicist Enrico Fermi asked during a discussion of flying saucers in the late 1940s. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fermi_paradox… Read Article →
