Secret Project Post #1

For those of you who know me, I try to do at least one ‘filmmaking’ project per summer since I graduated.  Two years ago, I was “On the Lot” and last year I created the “New Media Recruitment initiative for Chapman University.”

This summer I’ve been working on the ‘secret project’ which I’ll post a trailer for hopefully in a few weeks.  I just finished capturing footage from this summer’s shoot.

Film Studies – Career of the Future?

As the entire world moves more and more toward moving images, is a career in film studies the way of the future?  The internet is taking over for newspapers and magazines, and advertisements on hand held/mobile devices are certainty right around the corner.  The visual language seems to be the voice of the future – what say you?

David May’s “On the Lot” expierence

I’ve been asked by some friends to blog about “On the Lot.”

For those of you who are not familiar with OTL, I’ll offer a quick explanation. Basically, it was a show produced by Steven Spielberg, Mark Burnett, and David Goffin that was intended to be sort of like the “American Idol” for filmmakers; the search for the next “great American Filmmaker.” The show was on Fox on the summer of 2007 and I was one of the contestants.

Naturally, there are lots of things that I really just can’t blog about; I’ve been sworn to secrecy. What I can say is that it was definitely an adventure that I won’t soon forget. I started the application process in October of 2006 by submitting a short film that I created at Chapman University entitled “Fetch.” While at the Denver Starz International Film Festival with my most recent short, “Itsy Bitsy” I received a phone call from the “On the Lot” staff. I was very excited. After that, I followed their instructions until they lead me “On the Lot.”

That’s the long and the short of it, anyway. Feel free to ask me questions if you like, and the questions that I can answer, I will.

I just finished a trailer for a new project I’m working on and I’d love feedback from cyberspace.

Remember those “choose your own adventure” books you read when you were a kid? I thought it would be fun to do a “choose your fate” movie. It’s not edited yet, but we have filmed “pilot episode” and the trailer is available at http://www.davidmay.tv. I’m also including it below:

Please don’t hesitate to give me some feedback. I’ll be sure to post a new blog when the final product is finished.
