narration leading to hindus helped
longer pause after intro, into driving scene
ghostly moo, for mood (good idea)
audio for horns
disconnect between whats being and whats being shown
polish drawings/new drawings
sequence and variety are nice but too quick, to much info make a slower pace
fix strobing effect on filters/ distracting
not all shots need old style filter
better ending, not leave on ‘you wouldn’t kill your mother?’
“you wouldn’t kill your mother?”, should stay
(recognize what audiences reaction is whether good or bad?)
make a trip out of his interview?
make sacrifices in film
fade barge sound into moo sound.
use contrast on blue psychic? (better interview)
Treasure Island Lady interview, in or out?
(use narration guy instead of lady)
The core concept of the documentary is to reveal to the audience the Urban Legend known as “The Phantom Cow of Yerba Buena Island.” One of our main goals is to highlight the idea that Urban Legends such as this one are ridiculous, but at the same time, they posses a sense of history and aesthetic that people can appreciate.
