Due to situations beyond my control I have an essay for you this week instead of a video. My apologies, as I have been laid up all weekend with either a nasty little cold or the early stages of the "T-Viris". Because of this (and my 10 hour a day job) my ability to produce a video of creative or humorous merit this week has been severely hampered.
The Lyric Cinema Cafe held it's first "Local Filmmaker Night" yesterday. This event was meant to bring local filmmakers together to connect with one another, give each other feedback as well as screen for the local audience. There were cash prizes that were mainly an incentive for people entering their movies for screenings. They hope to make this a monthly thing and we hope to enter this event again in the coming months. To the owner, Ben, we local filmmakers can't thank you enough for putting this event together.
This is just a quick update to tell you all about the latest CBP screening. This Thursday (AUG 5th) at 6:30 PM at the Lyric Cinema Cafe (300 E Mountain Fort Collins, CO) we will be screening one of our films. This process has gone from being "just a Local Filmmaker Showcase" to being a FULL BLOWN CONTEST! I know, I'm just as thrilled and surprised as you are. We could really use your support, because in this Octagon of film, the audience's vote matters. So if you're in the area, please stop by the event and show us some love.
I’ve never been a big fan of the romantic comedy genre so when Rob asked me to do a Top 6 about them, I was sort of at a loss. But I thought about it and there are ones I like, but the ones I find more interesting are when they’re from the male lead’s perspective. They’re often just a silly or dumb as the usual, female-centric rom-coms, but since I am of the emo male persuasion when it comes to love, I connect to them. So here we have the top 6 romantic comedies told from the guy’s point of view.
VI – Forgetting Sarah Marshall
Summer is usually "Wedding Season" but lately it feels a bit more like "Baby Season" and no, I don't mean to hunt babies. For those of you who think that, there is a short for you HERE.
Long before Paula Abdul was "Nice Judge" on the television blight that is American Idol, she was a singer and choreographer. And long before Keanu Reeves starred in the Matrix, he performed the part of analog James Dean in this video.
Rush, Rush was featured on Abdul's second album Spellbound in 1991. It topped Billboard's Top 100 for five consecutive weeks. Enough background, lets get down to brass tacks here...
The adventures of Gov't. Tit continue...
I don't normally do update blogs, since I get the impression that most of of you who visit the site are interested in seeing videos and animations and not in my blog writing skills (That's why I leave it to professionals like Kyle Anderson). However, I wanted to let you all know what I've been up to this past week (Since it's interesting and actually has bearing on filmmaking)
I was inspired to make this video after watching CBP's "Troublemaker Shorts". I hadn't made a movie of my own in...five years? It had been a while, regardless, and I missed it. After watching the boys' shorts, I decided to do the same.
This short was inspired by a co-worker, who asked me the question: "If George Washington were alive today, what do you think he would say about our country?" I find the question intriguing, although if we were to take it literally, I doubt that General Washington would want to talk politics.
