Connor Franta shows how to film thyself, in a witty monologue, “I’m Going on a Date”.
That’s in West Hollywood, with himself.
So this is how to make a monologue into a screenplay, with all kinds of unusual shots and diversions, while cooking lunch, a vegan pasta, from ingredients. (What would Tyler Mowery think of the writing?)
It is also a spot for Target’s “Good & Gather”. I don’t recall seeing that trademark in northern Virginia Targets.
If you want to learn to make high production quality video from a monologue, this video provides a pretty good example of the ideas.
The coffeepot picture above comes from the Angelino Hotel on the 405 when I visited LA in 2012. There's another video (by Reisinger) that urges switching from coffee to tea (and John Fish likes tea, too).
There was a book in 2000 by Katherine Kersten from the Center for the American Experiment in Minneapolis, “Close to Home: Celebrations and Critiques of America’s Experiment in Freedom” where the author was critical of “self-dating”, where individuals were overrunning family formation, which was becoming an afterthought. But that was years before Obergefell. And a pandemic like COVID had never been imagined.
