For a high school English project, we were asked to film a scene from "Fahrenheit 451", but our group decided to film several scenes. We initially had plans to include Faber and the Mechanical hound but due to shortage of time, we did what we could. We only had two days, with one of the days passing quickly without us doing much. I hope you all enjoy this, we definitely had fun making it but it's definitely not the best thing out there.
Here in sunny South Florida, Sunrise and Ft. Lauderdale to be exact. Say, I ordered the DVD Ray Brabdury, the Story of a Young Writer , I think that I have that title right. My wife and watched it and really enjoyed it. Afterwards, I told her that I'd like to call Ray and she well call him which I did.
He seemed very happy that we enjoyed the film which he said was shot in January and February of 1962. My wife always wonders what Ray has to say when I call him so I put him on speaker phone so she could hear and Ray could her as well. His ending comment was "You've made my day!" which was quite nice for him to say.
The DVD is in black and white and shows a young Bradbury just five years before I first got to meet him.

Haha, it does not correlate with the story at all. This was just for a high school English project so I did not focus on getting everything to perfect cinematic perfection. But it's becoming almost like a signature now. I have another video Becket where we do a similar ending where it does not correlate at all. We're shooting a remake of a Bollywood film right now, that's going to have a similar signature.
