    Default Entry from Mark Wataon.

    Four weeks of my life.
    2 hours of tape.
    24 hours of editing.
    10,000 frames.

    Typically 'zaskaresque' I think.

    Contains swearing and an ugly git looking rough...
    1 meg stream.

    You tube version, crap quality.

    YouTube - La Dolce Vita - recovering from love gone bad.


    This wasnt originally planned to be an entry or even a film. It was a video diary I kept after Beccy dumped me after 2 years. It was something I did to get me through the shit times. However as things turned out I thought it would be interesting to squeeze the whole heartbreak to reacovery story into six minutes, a journey back to la dolce vita.

    Also, I have never really made a film about myself and reflexive film making is all the rage at the moment so I tht this was a golden oppertunity to give it a try. It actually makes me laugh to watch it.

    Edit 17.7 - now re edited - much shorter - sound better - titles better - well i think so.
    Edit 21.7 - now fiddled fx and original s track by pylonking. Thats it done now, promise

    Blimey!

    I think you're incredibly brave to bare your soul online like this. To show yourself as raw and vulnerable as this takes a lot of bottle. I couldn't do it. Very moving and thought prevoking.

    Women! You can't live with 'em... and you can't shoot 'em.

    Brave or reckless ? Well, if I want to bare other peoples souls on film as a film maker I tht it only fair that i treat myself to the same treatment.

    wow, very powerfull stuff.

    That must have been so hard to put together. You must have agonised over how much to show.

    My hat goes off to you Mark.

    Very good, I liked how your mood evolved throughout the film, nice editing as well, some parts made me chuckle: "Just give me a resolution!". And indeed, very brave.

    Thanks - every day you should do something that scares you - that was a weeks worth, and also like i said if i want to make challenging documenarys one day, and i do, then exploiting peoples pain for my ego /bank account is what i will be doing - only fair to put myself in the spotlight.

    Also the flim maker part of me was so chuffed with the result I just had to go public - it cracks me up now.

    I never thought that diary would turn into such a soap opera.
