This is what it is all about

Someone (accio angel) recently posted a comment drawing attention to a vigorous discussion going on about These Girls on the Bones website. As I read through the discussion, I realized that this is why I made the film in the first place. Even though the film is built primarily to entertain, it also deliberately brings up a number of issues and throws them out there for your consideration. I am so happy people are picking up on these subjects and discussing them - it is the greatest compliment. I hope to see more in the future, both out there and here.

Careful, because if you haven't seen the film this discussion does contain SPOILERS. Best to watch the film, then get in on the discussion.

I finally got to see the movie, both versions, rented the American one and purchased the Canadian DVD for the commentary. I enjoyed the movie even more on the second viewing. I am a Boreanaz fan, so it was great to see him use his comedic talents and of course the expressions on his face were priceless. The actresses were a great team playing off one another.

The deflowering scene was so funny and touching at the same time. It could have been an uncomfortable scene to watch, but the direction of having Boreanaz be so gentle and caring and the dialogue made it a fun scene. Having her continue to call him Mr. Clark and his plea to be called Keith, was hysterical.

I enjoyed the commentary. Sorry everyone was so cold, but it makes me appreciate even more the acting. I liked the pepto scene, so it was funny to hear that was DB's idea. Being a Boreanaz fan I liked seeing him run the gamut from sweet and funny to mean. He has the talent to shift gears quickly, so it was nice to see that in some of the scenes. Thanks for creating a film with so many layers. I enjoyed the cast, the humor, the drama, and the many points of view to be considered in viewing this film.

I'm glad you liked the film so much. I think the deflowering scene is one of the best in the film as well. Thanks for your kind words and support.

Hi, I just recieved my copy of the dvd from Amazon.com and watched it. Which was all I could do literally. I am hearing impaired so was very upset to see that the dvd is neither closed captioned or subtitled. While I enjoyed watching it, it would have been even more amazing if I could have known what was being said. Is your script available anywhere for the hearing impaired fans?

I will look into it - maybe the Canadian vesion has subtitles and/or is closed captioned.

a online friend of mine at david_b_daily live journal has the Canadian version and she checked for me and she said there are no captions or subtitles on it either.

Apologies for that - there should be subtitles on the DVD. I know we have a Closed Captioned script - which was created for our video masters for television broadcast. Give me a couple of days to find it and we will get it to you somehow.

terilyn - I have a copy of the dialogue list (the script that is used to create the Closed Captioned titles). If you email me at juanchaos@sympatico.ca I can send you a copy. Just make sure to specify what format you want it in i.e. Word, rtf, pdf, etc.

This is great - a film director being hands-on helping the fans!

Is it a general thing that DVDs from North America don't have subtitles? I'm sure that every DVD I've bought that has originated in the UK has subtitles on.

My copy of the DVD arrived today. Guess what I'll be doing this evening!!
