My Future of Filmmaking

“As a student just starting out in this field I feel it is my duty to become fluent in both ‘halves’ of the motion picture business, picture and sound, in order to keep my options open; for as I grow older and more experienced and gain a place of stature in the industry I don’t know which my aging body will make me first: blind or deaf.”

You Can Go Home Again

Well I’m back in Denver for the summer. Have been for a while now, just too lazy (honestly) to write anything in this blog…. which I doubt people actually read anyway. I’m looking for production work and so far it’s a no-go. There appear to be few opportunities for production students like myself in the Denver area. But I have decided that while I may not be working I can still be working on other things. For example, writing, researching, getting into shape (heh, yeah, right), and visiting family are all viable alternatives.

Wag the Public

Doesn’t it seem convenient that this Iraqi prisoner abuse scandal has prompted violent retribution from the radical militant Islamic groups? Now this soldier found in the conveniently extremely well documented prisoner abuse photographs says she was ordered to pose that way? I think she and others like her are going to take the fall as patsies. The US will take the blame but before any more major reforms can be made there will be more retribution from terrorist cells and/or the US will counter-retalliate and we’ll see a major clampdown and possibly an excuse to postpone the June 30 handover.

Car Alarm Insanity

There is a car parked across the street from my apartment for the last week now. It has a car alarm that goes off an average of at least once every half hour. Anything and everything apparently sets it off: passing busses, helicopters, airplanes, and stupid cars with their stupid ghetto noisy exhaust mufflers. I want to smash that car, throw a stick of lit dynamite under it, run it over with a bulldozer, drop it off a cliff, anything to get that DAMNED NOISE TO STOP! It’s driving me f*cking insane!

A Good Way to Track TV Seasons

I just had a funny thought: don’t know how far we are along in the TV season? Just count the number of contestants left on a reality series commercial. That’s how many weeks there are left in the season. 🙂

Spring Break and Beyond

I saw a drive-by shooting over spring break. But not in LA. I had to go home to Denver to see one. Something exhilarating, but not that I would care to repeat anytime soon.
