Will I Meet George at Dolby?

filmmaking, general Add comments

It’s the night before the big interview. Hopefully the 9-month hiatus will not adversely affect my test performance. Seems testing is a big deal now days; a lot of employers have been burned by taking candidates at their word. While certainly not my first love, web development does pay the bills, and an opportunity at Dolby is certainly worth pursuing. Who knows whom I’ll run into there? Perhaps I’ll see George Lucas walking down the hallway. Will I launch into a tirade, giving him a piece of my mind? Or will lose all composure and grovel at his feet. Those of you who know me best know the answer.

Speaking of George, and yes we are on a first name basis… appears to have mucked up the next Indiana Jones film, not that the idea of Harrison Ford chasing Nazis with a walker appealed to me. Seems the script by Frank Darabont ("The Green Mile" and "Shawshank Redemption") didn’t meet George’s expectations; perhaps the dialogue wasn’t flat enough. On the other hand Stephen (Spielberg that is, also on a first name basis) liked the script but is deferring to George. When did Spielberg become such a "p*ssy"? I guess too much water under the bridge. Anyways thanks a lot George, one less thing to look forward too. After the end of the Lord of the Rings and Sex in the City, what else is there? Oh yeah. Kill Bill, Volume 2. And what’s that other film… that’s it… The Incredibles.

It’s going to be a long summer I’m afraid…
