I hate shoveling snow. I imagine shoveling dirt is worse. If Camp Green Lake from Louis Sachar’s beloved novel Holes were a real place and I had to go there, I would not have lasted a day. Shoveling blows. Honestly, so does snow at this point. I’m over it! But today, I took up … More Epiphany.
Something’s happened to my personal YouTube consumption…namely that I don’t do it anymore. I’m still subscribed to about thirty or so channels. I personally don’t like to clutter my feed with hundreds of people; not on YouTube, not on Twitter, not on here, even. The only exception is Facebook and that’s because I know … More YouTube.
Finally saw In Bruges (2008) for the first time tonight followed by The Grudge 3 (2009). I would have been better served just watching In Bruges twice in a row. Holy balls what a terrible movie. I’m actually really mad that I sat through the whole thing. There are bad horror movies that are … More Reviews
For full video, please click here (opens in new tab). For lack of a better term, I think, because I don’t think what I made is necessarily intended as an art piece (sans the very beginning with the alcohol. Granted, it is low art, but it says something nonetheless, and not just my status … More Rule 37 is Ruining the Internet
Morbid as this is, I have spent more time than I’m willing to admit wondering when we would lose our first brother. I was hoping it would be years and years later when we’ve had amazing careers and experiences and it would obviously be one of our older brothers from the first five years … More Death.
Today, I ran my very first workshop on film producing! About ten pledges and brothers showed up and I think they got a lot out of it. At least, I hope they did. I told them to send me feedback if they felt it necessary. Plus, a couple brothers who have producing experience spoke … More Workshop.
WARNING: Extreme fangirling imminent. If you’re not into that kind of thing (and I can hardly blame you), you would do well to skip the bolded paragraph below: — Before I begin, it is important to note that I am in LOVE with Robert Downey Jr. and would burn down an orphanage if it … More Review: Iron Man 3 (2013) – dir. Shane Black
Eh. This movie didn’t do too much for me at all. I’m not a huge fan of alien movies anyway (says the gal vamping up to see Star Trek: Into Darkness when it opens) and this one is no exception. A TL;DW for you: Alternating between documentary and cinematic styles, a ship of aliens … More Review: District 9 (2009) – dir. Neill Blomkamp
So, I’m not the smartest bulb in the box, or however the saying goes. But it frustrates me when I feel like I have something to contribute to something simple, like a group exercise, and no one listens. Today in lighting, for example. I thought we could use the umbrella diffusion as part of … More Frustration.
What I love the most about film that I never thought I would love the most about anything is that it’s a collaborative effort. Everybody on one project has the same vision, but is slightly or vastly different from the next person, from the writer to the producer to the director to the DP … More Solitude.
