Thanks to my good friends Justin Holman and Matt Effinger, I'm now brainlessly addicted to "Trailer Park Boys." A big thanks also goes out to Netflix, because without them, I have no fucking clue how else I would have ever seen this uncensored Canadian sitcom. Hence why, "I fockin' love kitties." -Bubbles
So, I just got back home from seeing Zack Snyder's new action bonerjam "SuckerPunch." As a moviegoer, I have watched Snyder's visual style grow from "Dawn of the Dead" through "300" and "Watchmen" to now. Every film grows on his ability to challenge the film industry and actually make movies that can recreate whatever our minds can imagine.
When I first decided to become a filmmaker back in high school, my biggest inspiration was Tim Burton. But now, almost 10 years later, I find myself drooling over making films more in the style of Snyder and "The Social Network" director David Fincher. In fact, I have always loved Fincher's work, beginning with "Alien 3" and "Seven" in the early 90s. I could also talk a lot about Chris Nolan, but I just feel like being a Nolan fan is almost too cliché right now (but if you get me alone in a bar, I'll talk your fucking ear off about "Inception," "Memento," and of course "The Dark Knight").
If you survived that last paragraph, let me tell you about me right now.
- I just completed the script for my next student film, which I hope to shoot and complete in April.
- I sat in on a casting session for a handful of theatrical monologues that I wrote, which will be performed on May 2nd at the Touhill Performing Arts Center at the University of Missouri-Saint Louis.
- I'm also nearing the completion of editing the OPTION//CONTROL video for "Saw Her There," which will be released on April 15th.
I again will work harder to update this more often, but time just seems to escape me.
