Part 15: The Acquisition

Part 15: The Acquisition

From Anna Alexander:

While the publicist was waiting to hear back from Kaufman, I thought I'd start bringing in some additional artwork,  "pick-up" in photo edit speak.  You never know if the editors are suddenly going to want a movie time-line or a sidebar, and you don't want to be scrambling at the end.  The Publicist had sent me a ton of screenshots from Sony Pictures Classics of Synecdoche, New York, which I logged into our Art Tracking database (every photo ever is onfile)- each image gets a name so we can keep track of them, like "16.11FF.kaufman.dl.55089."  "16" is for the Wired year, "11" is November, "FF" is feature, "dl" = digital low resolution, and the last sequence of digits are the art tracking number. I know, fascinating.  I then created a contact sheet for Scott and I to go over and make selects.

I also dove into some stock photography sites to see what was out there, just in case we're unable to get exclusive images and we need reference of Kaufman for an illustration.    I started searching our usual suspects: Getty, Corbis, AP, etc. I've included a sample of what a stock search for Charlie Kaufman looks like from Getty Images.
