    A Life in Our Times

    Hello all! After a lot of hard work, my second short film is finally finished. I'd be majorly appreciative if you could give it a watch, as well as provide any and all feedback you can! I've already ripped this movie to shreds in my head, and am looking forward to making the next one, but would love to hear any thoughts that could help me in my progression as a filmmaker.


    So watch it here.

    Also, if you have…

    Majestically beautiful, and boundless with its artistic creativity. A slow start, leading to an ultimately brilliant short, showcasing an expansive idea in a simplified and telegraphed way, that’s so digestible, and painfully intellectual. A real marvel.

Everyone has their own opinion, and I respect that. This was simply not for me. In fact this is the fourth Guillermo Del Toro film I’ve seen, and it’s the fourth I haven’t liked (Pan’s Labryinth (2.5), Hellboy (1.5), And Crimson Peak (.5)). There’s…

    Saw this in 70 MM in Chicago, which was about a four and a half hour drive from where I live. The experience was incredible, not only having never been to Chicago, but to experience my favorite movie in it's optimal format. I've had equally meaningful viewings of this film (mostly in relation with the influence of certain mind-altering drugs(*hint, hint, wink, wink*)), but never has it looked and felt so powerful. Seeing it blown up to it's largest proportions,…
