I’m on the murky road to film financing. My latest project — following the wild and wonderful ride with Traffic Opera — is called Dust Nuggets.
I’ll be partnering with Andrew Pochan once again. This time we’re going full bore to create a feature film. We shot a teaser for this back in March and finally have it posted: https://youtu.be/-TkVt_1noTA
It’s a mind bending psychological drama with a nod to the Iambic pentameter. It’s Dr. Seuss meets David Lynch. It was originally a web series, but Andrew and I changed things around, got our own minds blown on some big hairy Pharma product, and spit out a script for a full length feature film. With unicorns. We can’t wait to get this mutt financed. If you see us coming, you might want to run in the other direction because we will definitely be asking about money.
See you down at the permit office.
I hate writers that write about writing, but this here little supercut of writers with writer’s block is too cute to not pass along. Check ‘er out from some guy named Ben Watts and his buddy Ivan Kander. Good work boys. Now go get a banana nut muffin.
Unmitigated creativity at its best from somebody named Terri Timely:
Beautiful little film from PBS (thanks Kate Mallow for the rec) that shows how great a short, short story can be. They’re calling it a poem, but I think it’s a full story.
Very cool little documentary from Vimeo’s staff picks on a skateboard park in Kabul, Afghanistan. Question: why don’t many girls in America, where there is no patriarchal restriction, skateboard?
