After all, Eric Steel didn't say he wasn't going to film the jumpers off the Golden Gate Bridge when he applied for a permit to shoot the bridge all day, every day, for a year. According to the federal officials who issued him the permit, he described his project as, variously, "a day in the life" of the bridge or "a powerful and spectacular interaction between the monument and nature."

Steel captured 19 jumpers on film, plus "hundreds" of unsuccessful attempts, including some that were thwarted by his crew's alerts to authorities. Then he went to interview people affected.

If Tad Friend's excellent, disturbing 2003 New Yorker piece is to be believed, bridge officials and politicians are rather warily pre-occupied with its reputation as a suicide spot. Which makes their protestations that they were shocked, shocked at the director's "true intentions" ring a little hollow. Friend's article is pretty damning of the bridge's managing board, which adamantly opposes installing suicide-preventing fences.

When you tire of reading self-righteous condemnations from implicated public figures, there are plenty of snap judgments from utterly uninvolved people on Metafilter.

"There's a certain enjoyment in facing death, periodically."
- actor Robert Blake discussing--no, but good guess--discussing his appearance on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, as quoted in a 1978 New Yorker profile by Kenneth Turan. [Day-um. Turan kept a Carson Watching Journal in 1976 that uses words--in his JOURNAL--like 'exordium'? It's like College Bowl meets Television Without Pity.]

Bonus celebrity murderer mention: O.J. Simpson

Since 2001 here at greg.org, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting greg.org that time.
