Is the short available? Or do you want to share it with us? The trailer is very intriguing; the images are disconnected in such a way that I don't know how they work together, but I really want to know.
I'm so many people.

the short is still password protected, the short still has days ahead at nobudge, and i'm feeling emotional, because there are these adult professional reasons it hasn't been on nobudge already. i'm ready to share it! but it's not ready

a thing i can mention is i feel lucky we were able to make a 1:15 trailer for a 7:33 short. that's crazy. thanks everyone. the trailer at the beginning and end has footage from the scarlet we used for the short (+1 alexa shot of the tree for venice), the beginning also has iphone video and the short has iphone video, and for the trailer we shot "lead character in los angeles" rcv vhs footage for the middle. beginning, middle, and end are readable by the song selection.

seemed like too much to ask, to show 1:15 and expect you to wanna watch 6:18 more, so we made some shit up for the fun and for the hell of it

thanks for the words drenk cloudy and axolotl!! i'm excited if you're excited. calm and friendly anyone can for sure pm and get the short's viewing info

not trying to brag or nothing, but two more people. i appreciate it. of course i do

the last thing i forget, aside from a synopsis of anything (which it could be guessed is the last thing i'd share), is movie facts

movie facts:

my personal movie facts -- are like my resume. a little shaky. let's say i've traveled blocks that've led me nowhere and i don't look good on paper

codirector/editor -- edited the fargo promotional bumpers, edited lucy walker's sundance-selected the lion's mouth opens, edited the crash part of walker's the crash reel, edited walker's the contenders, was an assistant for peter bogdanovich, and don't he look good on paper? friends, you know. they mean a lot

dp -- shot the harmontown documentary, shot this wild nothing music video (with the steadycam op from the avengers), shot this chain gang of 1974 music video, and other things which i'm not listing because the list is long and he's a camera pro

production designer -- art director for short term 12, this sigur rós music video, and basically every job she gets seems like loads of fun and she's great. i worked as her pa for pampers commercials, paranormal activity 4, and other things

music person -- who has a song in the trailer, the third song, and is very into electronic music but not in an edm way, in a way i'd have to use google for like ~30mins to describe

lead actress -- is a manager at cinefamily which is a great los angeles theater that well for example werner herzog was there last friday for nosferatu in german, and i was most excited because she was in wes craven's my soul to take

second actress -- also helped make wardrobe decisions and doesn't work in the entertainment industry, i just like her vibe and she's irl interesting

actor -- was in was crave's my soul to take with the lead actress

I've seen it and liked it a lot, it's messy in a good way, in a way where the mess is a coherent form. We talk a lot about album movies here, and this short is, in my opinion, an album short. I liked the fact that, even if it's an important trip for the character, what happens is simple. "Of course I miss her. A little." This trip is a little great time for her. It's important to capture the little sometimes.
I'm so many people.

You took us to your LA, and I really feel like I know these people and I've been to these places (in a way that you made your memories and moments feel like mine)...it's so great how the first short you shared with us you took us here, where you always-always talk about--gem city.

 :bravo:...it's a great kind of bonkers knowing we have honest souls/talent who really give a shit, rolling around in this place.

Also everything Drenk said*
*I wish the end-titles went on longer...

It looks nice, and i want to see the full thing, but i don't like the captions. That font, overlaid in caps and bright colour, has been done to death for going on five years now. Aside from that, throw me on the intrigued pile.

well, we thought of it as like a forty-year tradition, you know, and we originally said we wanted to imagine if godard and eisenstein met in an aol chatroom. thanks for bringing up the intertitles. they were made by our friend who owns a cassette label and works in graphic design, for example she made:



you sound nice, and i want to see your full response, but i don't like your intrigue. oh i'l pm the data to anyone who asks, i bet

just watched the full thing. I loved it. Made me want to book a flight to California immediately. The tone reminded me a lot of Sans Soleil, which is one of my favourite films ever, so no faint praise. If i saw it in a short film festival, i would scramble to write down the name and director so i could investigate and watch it again.
