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?
