    Hey there Letterboxd friends. I just released my new zero-budget feature film Darkness on the Edge of Town on YouTube.

    We started shooting this 2 years ago with an amateur cast, borrowed or trespassed locations, props and costumes from Party City, and a single-man crew (me). In the independent spirit of someone like Mark Borchardt, this film is held together with duct tape and belief. The music is almost entirely by friendly local bands, the cast is mostly people I…

    Oh dear. Almost a complete misfire. I think we've reached the point of A24 oversaturation. This might be the Heaven's Gate of the modern indie wave for me.

    I vividly remember being about 9 and going over to my neighbor's house and playing Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 for the first time. I got absorbed into those games, and the non-existent glamorized fantastical life of a professional skateboarder. When I was 16 I met skaters my age, and though I…
