Someone made a poster of my film!

3 07 2016

Someone made a really cool poster for my short film, June, and uploaded it to the film’s IMDB page! Who are you, mysterious designer? I am impressed and flattered that you even did such a thing! Also, I love it!

Reading a synopsis of your film written by someone else

15 10 2013

It’s weird, but in a good way. I certainly haven’t come across many reviews for my films (although I’m really interested in knowing what others have to say to the point where I will google the hell out of myself and my films), so I was pleasantly surprised when I came across someone else’s synopsis of Stay on imdb. Here’s what they said:

Eric and Sam, two Asian-Canadian males, have just had sex with each other like they have had several times before. But like he has every previous time after their sexual encounters, in-the-closet Sam is going home to his parent’s house where he still lives, rather than stay the night at Eric’s. The actual act of staying the night becomes a symbol of the status of their relationship. Sam doesn’t ever foresee himself coming out as to upset his culturally traditional and religious parents, and thus he will always “go home” so as not to give his parents any indication of what he has been doing. In Sam not spending the night, Eric sees himself as just Sam’s fuck buddy, which has no emotional connotation. If Eric and Sam truly see each other as a boyfriend, Sam will soon have to make that symbolic leap of spending the night or else risk losing Eric. Written by Huggo

What a wonderful synopsis! Huggo gets the film, which is awesome. It’s a whole lot better than my short, tiny synopsis that was there previously. Thanks, Huggo!

Obsessing is not good

25 10 2012

I have never been quite obsessive about many things.  But for some reason, I’ve been watching endless interviews with Tom Twyker and the Wachowskis for Cloud Atlas.  I don’t know why I am so obsessive either, which is partly bothering me.  For example, I have been checking its rating on imdb every few hours, trying to see if it is going up or down, which is pretty useless because it’s not even released yet (although almost 3000 users have voted so far).  I have been listening constantly to the soundtrack — or rather, the few pieces available on youtube.  Today, I saw someone reading the novel and I wanted to ambush her and talk about the notion of reincarnation, destiny, fate, and all these big ideas and to start a philosophical conversation, but alas.

In other news, I’ve started reading Watership Down, which is fantastic so far.  Maybe I’ll start obsessing about that soon.
