Steve, your experience was quite different from my own. While
his crew did ask me to make a cup of coffee, there were no repeat
shoots of my comments and no prompting on the response. He
repeated over and over that if I didn't want to answer a question I
didn't have to. In retrospect, I wish I had been more thoughtful
about my responses, but that was my fault not his.
> I wanted to compare notes and encourage everyone about how Isy came to
> College Station to film us.
> He interviewed me with some questions and then all kinds of banal
> shots of me looking out a window and stuff like that.
> Since it was his last day in town I think, he asked me to say that
> "our group in College Station has Christians and a Jew in it." In
> Europe, he thinks there is more polarization like the Democratic
> Christian party or the Socialists would all be more homogenous. I had
> to do that over and over until he got me to say what he wanted,
> because I kept wanting to add other other aspects of our different
> backgrounds and so forth. He wanted that description of us somehow in
> the film.
> He asked me to comment on some legal philosophies, and one made me
> think that only a philosopher would know the answer. As an example,
> chaos theory is not exactly the normal topic of law school educations.
> He also said he would send us a copy of the finished product in
> September when the editing is done.
