Last night was our F2 screening. Piddly shit 5 hour shoots in the same two locations with two actors from our own class, just to work with film for the first time and learn acting. They came out really well. Funny when they should have been, intense when they should have been. Peoplke liked mine, liked the lighting on one of my actors, which was all carlos (my dp), and one line from mine ended up being one of the four awesome lines of the night. A girl is asking another girl at a motel if she's seen a dragon, and the girl says they dont exist. The dragonslayer girl says they do, that her brother has a poster that brags about all the different species of dragon, and claire behind the desk says, "...I think that's fake...Like a GAME or something..." Trying to be sweet and telling people they're wrong is funny.

Afterward though, we had a film school kegger at caleb's house. Funny thing is, Reb showed up.

Before our class, chip chalmers taught bfa's directing and reb taught the mfa's. But they flipflopped so they'd know everyone in the school. Before talking to reb, you get the impression he is always bitter, a little guy who smokes a lot and wears nothing but black leather jackets, shirts, blue jeans and boots. Then you meet him and he gives you a speech about when he shot something in an alley in miami and they didn't have the permits, so this cop came and made them stop, but the 1st ad kept pissing him off coz he kept shooting, and reb was trying to mediate and this cop was just getting so pissed. reb got the ad fired, and the next day at the alley, this truck driver wouldnt move, so reb called the cops to move him, since they now had permission. The one that showed up was the pissed cop. Reb started apologizing about the previous day and begging him to help and the cop stopped him and said, "They sent me here to help you guys. Don't worry. I'm your cop." Then reb ends the story, looks at you and says, "Guys. I'm your cop." Awesome.

Anyway he was at this party last night, standing over the keg. Didn't move the whole night, just stood at the keg talking to kale and kate. It was also will eng's 19th birthday, and he was getting all this wine and booze and reb was just like, awesome.

I'm gonna post some pictures of people i hang out with up here.

when i'm not working i'm working at resting and having fun, is why you havent heard from me.

directing my scene in a couple days. its about dragons.

dorking it up - have a lot of bought comics to read still, just bought a lot of call of cthulu cards, and a $50 board game. we play in an hour.

unleashing the beard for beard history month.

one of the second year kids' thesis film idea is about pirates who write poetry. he's one of the ones that calls me by my sailor name, "ol' waterboots" or just "waterboots". we figured that if i art direct his movie this summer, i will definately be abole to play a pirate called waterboots in the movie. and there would be a part that goes like this:

main character - "Hey, why do you all call him waterboots?"

so hopefully i can have the will not to shave until after the movie this summer. and i can do my own costume if it works out.


yeah, i'm alive. seeya.

Jake the Boy
You are Jake! Even in the weirdest situations you
don't panic, and instead, go with the flow.
Your innocent nature may be the reason for your
amiable ways, or maybe it is because you really
don't feel like you have a home anywhere. At
heart you are like a kid, and view life as an
adventure. Sometimes you can be too trusting,
but you are good at making friends.

that's a pretty good version of jake.

From The Guardian: "Michael J. Fox is once more heading Back to the Future. The 44-year-old actor told Moviehole.net that he is in talks to star in a fourth, and final, film in the franchise, but that he would only do it if he could act his age on screen. "The only way it would work would be if I played Doc [the eccentric scientist played by Christopher Lloyd in the previous three films]. I'm 44-years-old now and I'm not interested in running around on skateboards! I think after 1, 2 and 3 we all kind of felt we had done it. And I think if they did it again now they would do it with a younger cast and just do a different realisation of it, which would be fun.""

from halloween:

"Suicide Mistaken for Halloween Decoration

FREDERICA, Delaware - The apparent suicide of a woman found hanging from a tree went unreported for hours because passers-by thought the body was a Halloween decoration, authorities said.

The 42-year-old woman used rope to hang herself across the street from some homes on a moderately busy road late Tuesday or early Wednesday, state police said.

The body, suspended about 15 feet above the ground, could be easily seen from passing vehicles.

State police spokesman Cpl. Jeff Oldham and neighbors said people noticed the body at breakfast time Wednesday but dismissed it as a holiday prank. Authorities were called to the scene more than three hours later.

"They thought it was a Halloween decoration," Fay Glanden, wife of Mayor William Glanden, told The (Wilmington) News Journal.

"It looked like something somebody would have rigged up," she said."

That's like something that happens near the lead character in some really neat movie when that character kinda smirks and says, "Heh. Life, huh?" and then the credits happen to some cute Shins song.

best special effects, 1999, What Dreams May Come

that picture of that kid with that statue is proof. all that stuff they told us each year in high school about gpa, getting started on applying, doing homework and writing stuff for douchebag, "questions, thoughts, apprehensions or fears to be expressed at this time," teachers. yeah, you don't have to do that.

when we were passing it around, when the next person had their hands on the statue and base, they had to say thank you to show you they had it before you let go, like boy scouts with pocket knives.

Stuart - "I'm doing this to kind of demystify it for you."


Stuart - "Well, you know, I don't want you to think of it as this big thing, you know, so you can say, you know, 'I fucking held it.'"

Tom - "Yeah, I'm pretty sure I'm gonna say that exact thing every time I wake up from now on."

and if I hadn't already told you, stuart's in the academy AND he's even on the special effects nomination committee, and he said this year he might take a straw poll of all the students when the time comes to vote on the actual awards, so we all might have a 1/90th vote. which means we probly will.

you better belieeeeve best cinematography is gonna be Good Night, and Good Luck

now we just have to get him to let us pick the nominees for special effects with him.

oh shit i just realized, well realized a few minutes ago after i wrote those actors main credits, that they were both in galaxy quest. THERE IT IS. THE CONNECTION TO WHY THIS IS GOOD.

Enjoy Robin's Big Date...

What kind of girl are you?

brought to you by Quizilla

You're a one of a kind girl. You're not like other girls; you're the only one who knows how you really are inside. Few truly understand you and your emotions either show very little or a lot on the outside. Either way, you always will know something others will not...

Ferrell, Heder Get Glory
Pair of thesps set for ice skating comedy.
by IGN FilmForce
November 17, 2005 - Will Ferrell and Napoleon Dynamite star Jon Heder are in talks to appear in a new comedy called Blades of Glory, set in the world of competitive ice skating.

The DreamWorks-based project centers around a group of world-class men's figure skaters who, as Variety says, are "banned from the sport after their disgraceful brawl during the Winter Games in Salt Lake City. After three years of toiling in obscurity, they attempt to put aside their feud and exploit a loophole in the terms of their suspension, partnering to compete in the only category open to them -- pairs figure skating."

The two thesps would star opposite Will Arnett (Arrested Development) and Amy Poehler (Saturday Night Live), real life husband and wife, as their skating rivals.

Commercials veterans Josh Gordon and Will Speck will direct the film. Ben Stiller is producing.

- filmforce

you know, i wanna put ferrell in my movie about the battle of hastings. i had the idea for a movie trailer that would be led zeppelin's immigrant song (download it to see what i mean) playing over helicopter shots of snowy british country and then as plant starts screaming, a super slo-mo shot of a norman cavalier with his spear out riding down on a saxon housecaryl (sp?) winding up big with a five foot danish bearded axe, a lot of screaming and about to kill each other. battle of hastings was when william the conqueror and the normans fought harold I and his saxons for control of briton in 1066, effectively deciding the course of western civilization. i want to make to show that we can have non-pompous, american-accented, lively, entertaining period movies. itd basically be decaps and manly men being resolved for 2 and a half hours. but if you watch the sketch on best of will ferrell 2 where he plays the angry boss, there's a part where his face is dripping blood and sweat, just pouring, and he looks frigging scary awesome. his eyes are good for comedy for the same reason they're good for playing a veteran saxon berserker with long hair and a huge beard. yeah tangent.
