Carnahan hits trouble blogging

JoeCarnahan.jpgJoe Carnahan seems to have been getting into a little bit of bother over his open attitude to blogging about his career and projects. Indeed just this week he was asking for his readers to assist him in his decision of what to make first, White Jazz or Killing Pablo.

It seems that with all his blogging his publicist is being inundated with requests for story and casting confirmations for both projects and it's already a very busy time for them.

So he's announced that he's going to have to tone down the release of information on the site, and he's removed the scripts for White Jazz and Killing Pablo.

"So, long story short kids. I've been asked to curtail it in the interest of both projects and not release any information that might do damage down the line.

I've also taken the scripts off the site so for those of you that grabbed it beforehand,
bully to you. I still might be able to put them back up in the next few days."

Many professionals get hit while blogging about their life and their career, I have been twice, once through work and the other from a leading British leisure company who were trying to shut me down and sue me.

Still Joe Carnahan going to be giving us some information, just not as much as before. That's a shame as I was enjoying the openness of it all and the feeling of inclusion in the development process.

What do you think about blogging filmmakers? Is it a waste of time, do you think it's all marketing, or do you really enjoy reading them?



I knew it would only be a matter of time before something like this happened with it. 'Tis a shame, but I DID enjoy how open he was on his blog, it was part of what made it so special. *shrugs* Oh well.

Also, wow... what happened on your blog is one of the most ridiculous things I have ever seen on the internet. I'm not even kidding. Absolutely ridiculous.

Cheers Jonathan, it was ridiculous and went way too far, freedom of speech doesn't really exist in the UK.

I wish we saw more of Joe's style of blogging about films rather than the marketing led others we see.
