Sonosopher Update - November 19th


After one year of filming in Utah, New York City, and Italy, we are hard at work editing The Sonosopher. Filming in so many locations has provided us with a wealth of footage covering Alex's life, performances, and methods. We are getting anxious to share it with all of you and expect to hold our first screenings by this May. We will soon be launching our website to host trailers, updates, clips, and press that our film receives. We'd like to thank everybody for your continued support, and to remind you to continue to visit our blog for weekly updates at:

Until later,
The Sonsopher crew

Quick Update

It has been some time since we last updated.
We have been doing a lot lately, despite our absence on this blog.

This is what we've been doing over the past few weeks:
-Capturing all of our footage onto our hard drives (which has to be done in 15 minute intervals, in real-time), so that has been eating away at our time. That means we are still in the initial phases of the long, long process of editing...mostly capturing footage, cutting things that we don't like and/or know won't work in the film, and conceptualizing how the film is going to be composed from what we have, and then determining what we can and should still get on film.
-Filming the last few performances, interviews (etc.) with Alex...we'll wrap up all the filming by September/early-October (hopefully).
-Continuing to film a long list of interviews with Alex's family, friends, enemies, fellow poets, and colleagues.
-Working on preserving/digitizing many of Alex's written and visual works, both for general archival, and for use in our film.
-Being very picky, slow to make decisions, and anal about the design of The Sonosopher Website ...which is why it hasn't been updated to how it is really going to look yet. Let's all thank Eleanor for being patient and helping us out so much.

Very soon we will have some clips to show, as well as an 'official trailer' for the film, so keep checking back.

Here is a link to the very, very beginnings (it is pretty much still empty right now) of a website we are working on: 
Keep an eye on it. This website will host Alex's main site. It will also be the official website for our film, and will be an integral part of our ongoing effort to archive Alex's work.
