-Intro, body, conflict are all present. good job.
-Epilogue dialogue and writing need to be separate
-VO and lower thirds work well.
-Who is Sterling?
-SFX of comics.
-Not being able to get in touch with Jason isn’t a necessary component
-Hispanic background can be played up more.
-Single out Specter-X as latino amongst white superheros
-Core concept is not concrete.
-Start wide with “comic book publishing is tough,” narrow in on Enrique

We will approach this film with the intention of showing Enrique’s real life struggles with getting Specter-X funded and published. Enrique will discuss his past, current, and future obstacles within the context of his life and Specter-X’s life. Use of cinema verite with poetic shots, motion graphics, and voiceover, as well as an expository look at comic book readers and retailers can be expected.
My video looks to be complete. I have two interviews, one with a writer and artist. I’ve added tons of photos, some that I have taken and others from the internet. Along with that I have music and some special effects that match the theme to my story. I added a screenshot of my editing on Final Cut.
About a week ago I did another interview with the comic book writer Enrique. I also got hold of a comic book artist Leigh jeffery! meaning I no longer have to change around my topic, although I am going to make my video about the Writer and the artist.

For our class assignment I drew up a storyboard for my 1 to 2 minute pitch. Since I have only interviewed a comic book WRITER I had to make some changes. Those being that I will move my focus just to the writer that I interviewed.
Yesterday I met up with a comic book writer Enrique Morales. He is working on a new comic book called Specter-X. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to interview the artist of the comic book. none the less Enrique gave me good footage to put on my site. Once edited I will upload some of the highlights from our interview.
Enrique has a deviantart for his comic strips he has done and a gofundme account to help raise money for his Specter-X comic
I’ve posted a link to my sound cloud which contains my voiceover on Comic book artist
