I don’t even know why I really like this film…maybe it’s because I’m having such a hard time getting past the surface of any form of art and “Brief Interviews of Hideous Men” so effortlessly achieves this. The expository NYU writing classes are all about exploring the tensions that arise in works such as writing, art, or film, and then finding why the work is significant through the questions they pose. In our assignments we compare works with other works, we describe, we research, and I can do all that…but I can never seem to get past all the details.

anti-smoking commercial. This is probably old, but I feel like posting it. It’s simple, short, and creative.

Genius Trailer!

I love everything about the trailer for the new Coen brothers’ film, Serious Man. The rhythm and pacing rock!

Synesthesia

Tuesday, August 4th, 2009

A friend from work was telling me about this condition she has where she visualizes a color for each number. For example she always associates grey with the number 10. Browsing through booooooom, I came across this short film titled Synesthesia, which is a creative take on this phenomenon.

Yes, this is it. Big thanks to Jon! He was an awesome sport throughout!

Tis the story of a projectionist who often imagines he is in outerspace when he enters the projection room.

Zabriskie Point EXPLOSION

Wednesday, July 15th, 2009

In digital filmmaking class we watched this clip from the ending of Zabriskie Point. It’s a beautiful slow motion sequence of a series of explosions representing the idea of destroying consumerism.

I saw psycho for the first time at the Ambler Theater in HD. Anthony Perkins was my favorite part. The pacing of his dialogue and character glued my attention to the screen.
