TRF Rant for Today

You know, it's really hard to write a treatment for a documentary that hasn't been approved. It's fine for fiction, because you're using actors and pre-determined shots. But when you make a documentary, you have to get real people and do interviews and things, and you don't actually know what's going to end up on screen until you've shot it. How am I supposed to write a detailed description of something that doesn't exist yet?

...Maybe I should ask Michael Moore. He doesn't seem to let reality get in the way.

ohh just take a guess at how it'll come out..
thats what i'm doing in psych. my teacher assigned me to write the results section of an experiment we haven't even fully designed yet. i don't even have data to manipulate yet.

I don't have to worry about it now; My idea didn't get picked.

That's a good thing, by the way.
