geoff is a window-gazer

i don't know what i'm doing with geoff any more.

is he a voyeur? a dreamer? is he staring out windows longingly awaiting something?

i'm really more interested in playing with angles and lighting than with narrative, but per usual, the emphasis for the assignment is not aligned with my heart's desires.

there's a residual Hitchcockian quality to some of these photos.

there's a REAR WINDOW-esque sense of isolation and confinement that i'm trying to incorporate into my development of geoff's character and his predicament. but where is it going to lead?

i need a conflict. someone pls help me!

i'm no good, i'm no good, i'm no good...
...at narrative.

p.s. i just had a minor flash of brilliance: what if i titled it "GNOME WINDOW" (get it? haha... erm...)

Why would he look out a window What is the attraction

I mean, he did not ask you to look out a window You did not force him

And for kryse sake - let the man long for those days of destined freedom on some carbon copy suburban lawns

If that does not work, piss yourself off by realizing that because you are a student, you do nothing but over-think everything and are therefore no different than a ornament, sitting, absorbing, watching, sitting some more, hoping fuel burning engines do not run into you

(okay, that last one was a bit of a joke... or was it??? perhaps its was... SPAM!!! BWAH AH AH AH AHHHhhh...)

He must be plotting something - maybe he is plotting a narrative I mean, who the fuck is this strange man Does he watch movies Maybe he is plotting a narrative because he is sick of those kids with the portable DVD player who forced him to watch a Woody Allan boxset from start to finish... I think there was a study in Variety about how tramatic that is for horny (like, what's with the smile, there, guy?) bearded men
