Helping the cast for Friday 13th 4k movie re-boot cast 'get their act together.' Jason's lunch catering came up short on the ordered spring dumplings. Ahhh SHI#%t! bye.
We had a most 'unconventional' first audition meet. And now he has the part. Hands Down. Why? Because William rules.. .
Stay Tuned. bye.

If you are cutting down a 100 minute film into a 2 minute trailer, you have no reason to use anything but the absolute best footage. This may sound like a no-brainer, but many indie filmmakers are afraid to use their best material in the trailer, as they don’t want to give anything away. I’m not suggesting that you give away major plot points or the twist at the end of your film, but don’t be too precious with your material. bye.
Ummm, No. Bye.
p.s. regarding the new theatrical release of the film, 'Unfriended,' it is an aberration buffet of 'Paranormal Activity' meets 'Blair Witch' meets 'Saw.' This blogger heard someone say: "Well, that was fun but this movie's going to be dated in like six months." Do you feel the same way?"

Describe the story...ok. I will. Helen Alving is about to dedicate an orphanage she has built in the memory of her dead husband, Captain Alving. She reveals to her spiritual advisor, Pastor Manders, that she has hidden the evils of her marriage. She has built the orphanage to deplete her husband's wealth so that their son, Oswald, might not inherit anything from him. Pastor Manders had previously advised her to return to her husband despite his philandering, and she followed his advice in the belief that her love for her husband would eventually reform him. But, her husband continued his affairs until his death, and Mrs. Alving did not leave him for fear of being shunned by the community.
During the action of the play, she discovers that her son Oswald (whom she had sent away to avoid his being corrupted by his father) is suffering from inherited syphilis . What she considers even worse is that he has fallen in love with Regina Engstrand, Mrs. Alving's maid. Regina is revealed to be an illegitimate daughter of Captain Alving, and thereby Oswald's half-sister.
When he learns all this, Oswald asks her to help him die to end his suffering. The play concludes with Mrs. Alving having to decide whether or not to euthanize him in accordance with his wishes. Her choice is left unknown. bye- until I see you at BAM.
But wait a second, YOU cannot see ghosts - but I can! Wanna know why? Cuz cause Jane Public (whoever the heck that is) LOVES Ibsen.
“I didn’t know Kurt,” Frances Bean said of her late father, who died at age 27 from a self-inflicted gunshot wound in 1994. But she added that she feels “very very strongly” that he would be happy with the film if he were here today.
“He was a human being,” Frances Bean continued. “And I think that’s been lost within the romanticism and the myth of him and his story." The authorized biography film, Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, also featuring interviews with Love along with the late Cobain’s parents, sister, first girlfriend, and former band mate Krist Novoselic, opens in select theaters this weekend and will air May 4 on HBO. Can't wait. bye.

After shooting with large-format cameras, he scans images and manipulates them, altering and weaving together exposures in post-production, before printing his pictures on a grand scale. Bye.
He is so meticulous and skilled. His work never seems staged because it is not staged. Bye again.
John just appears so exhausted and spent, at this point in his life. I'm so grateful for the amazing independent work that he created back in the 80's, despite the epic studio pressures that existed then. He did things 'his way' and that is how they all still have his STAMP on 'em. Even under studio vigilence and contracts, he made his own music, stories and story interpretations. He's great. bye.
