I’ve hit yet another brick wall while writing a screenplay. That’s basically the only reason I sign on to this thing. I’ve let go of my facebook, and soon, the same will come of my twitter. Social media and television fries my brain. I won’t be an asshole and speak on behalf of everyone addicted to social media, NOR will I blame social media itself. The brick wall situation is my fault. I just can’t use social media, because it becomes to ulitmate form of procastination.
I’m not trying to rush into things. I just want to get work done. I.I.I.I.I.I. Reason why this blog angers me. me.me.me That’s what everything on this stupid thing is about. Sorry if you’re reading this. This blog is clearly my way of freewriting anything on my mind. Soooooooooo you can stop…….NOW.
Trying to learn the ways of zen and free myself from thought and time.
growing up in this generation of technology has been interesting to me since most of my influences are bitter old men who hate us. being a filmmaker wasn’t very simple during their generation. equipment was more expensive and harder to get to. it kind of makes me laugh sometimes how easy it is to make a movie nowadays. the difference is making something good versus making shit, which these older filmmakers don’t tend to think about. i mean, it does make it difficult for them. With such easy access to cameras and equipment, it’ll take so much of a producer’s time to get the shit movies and find the good ones. they get very frustrated with people calling themselves filmmakers, which is kind of a skewed term, now since most of us shoot digitally. I guess I shouldn’t call myself an aspiring filmmaker. HA! well, it’s getting interesting to say the least. i always think about how those who’ve inspired me would take my art. i feel like they’d hate it, which isn’t wrong, because compared to their talents. it is total shit.
BUT that’s how all the greats started. their shit films are dug up in their backyards somewhere so no one can get to it. in 30 years, i’ll just have to delete it from the internet. i almost forget the entire reason i wrote this post.
last week, my business partner and i watched robert rodriguez’s first film, which i’ve attached above, and i thought it was a clever cute kid’s movie, but my business partner was not that impressed. it’s not supposed to be very impressive is what i argued. you’re first film won’t be a classic. it’s usually the “first” film that’s brought public by a studio that’s named the classic. so, it gets me thinking with this easy access to equipment, does it mean we have to push ourselves to the extreme to release kubrick films, scorsese film, and spielberg films?
just finished the first installment of the blue series: insomnolent. this is definitely gonna be a series that i want to perfect as i keep making more. i’m experimenting with directing emotional disorders. as i’ve been directing and watching friend’s direct one of the most forgotten things in our movies is human emotion. you can’t convince your audience without actors conveying a character’s emotions and it’s our jobs as directors to make sure certain emotions are displayed. i started this project to teach myself to never forget that. it seems like a given, but let’s not forget, we’re amateurs trying to make a living doing what we love. enjoy.
