Blue Like Jazz: The Movie

posted by Jason Boyett

The fact that Steve Taylor and Don Miller have written a screenplay and are hoping to put together a film based on Don’s book Blue Like Jazz — perhaps you’ve heard of it — isn’t exactly big news.

But they’ve recently released a YouTube video discussing the project, and it is a fine example of how to make a cheap, entertaining, self-deprecating promotional video without it coming across as totally self-serving (which it is, as are all promotional videos). The cutaway shots are genius. Mad props to Taylor for this.

(No props to me for using the phrase “mad props.”)

Anyway, I thought you’d enjoy it. It’s fun and informational.

For those of you who have read the book, what are your thoughts about a potential film version? Worried? Excited? Ambivalent?

I am super excited about it. I am a fan of anything Don puts out. Except for the whole “I’m going to campaign for Barack Obama” thing. I voted for him but I don’t need Don to tell me why I should.

Totally excited for this movie. I pretty much want to be Donald Miller – except I’m not cool enough, clearly.

So I may be a little critical of Miller’s writing style…But I think this is a great idea. He writes like a movie (which is part of my criticism). So! Movie! Good idea.

My Introvert Interview
On Monday, author Adam McHugh delivered a guest post about the "snarling 8-headed monster" of the writing process. Today I return the favor -- sort of -- via an interview at his blog, Introverted Church. We talk about how my introverted personality has impacted my faith and doubt, and how the extrov

Harold Camping: "Invisible Judgment Day"
When the rapture didn't occur as predicted on May 21, 2011, Harold Camping had a few options. Here is how he could have responded to the failed prediction, in descending levels of crazy: 1. He could announce that he was wrong. This is the most reasonable option and was therefore unexpected. I wou
