the vimeo staff pick is of course a thing we truly wanted. 300 views from it after a minute

I watched again (and again and again), and my reaction is this:

It's not often I think this about a short - but longer, please!
Woo!
I just watched this again and I swear I can taste the fucking colors. This is so infectious in it's energy and I can't wait to see the feature.

Curious, If it's on Vimeo, (Vimeo Staff PicK!) that means you won't be taking this to festivals am I right? The nature of this piece feels like it can jive on the internet, but without lacking any of the integrity that most shorts have when they do. That shot when it goes from "cinema camera" to iPhone really just says it all (that sounds too overt, but it's really not). I think this is gonna get a lot of love, like it is already in our little corner of the shoebox... really happy and excited for you!

awww, so happy to hear that. it's my hope. we didn't ignore the festivals, the festivals ignored us, but now people are reaching back to us. it's like when you get some money and your family calls you. a little like that except, it's not family, it's business, and we're stoked, and what we want is to be moving forward. i hope this is a step

This is awesome jenkins. Just wanted to say that, friends I've shared gooses with, have got back to me to tell me that they love the movie...I watched "listen up philip" this week and it totally depressed me (i've not disliked a film like this in a while) and i watched "gooses" on my mobile and it got me out of that mood, especially the shot of lore talking to camera/her sister, that shot rescued my mood.

thanks to support from those who provided it, thanks to those who thought this sounded kinda interesting maybe, and if you've read this far consider yourself thanked whether you gave a shit or not. who'll give a shit? that's the question for our interminable future. i think we hit the ceiling for this release's potential

sun don't shine opened for a 1 day screening (10/27). nobudge's site runner kentucker audley is an actor in it. it's a good acting group, i consider kentucker "big name" because he's emotionally important to me, and kate lyn sheil full-time shreds. it was written/directed by amy seimetz. david fucking lowery was the final editor since, as siemetz says, he was "one of the only people I trusted." i call that the lowery touch. shane carruth created the end credits, and there's a little direct harmony between sun don't shine and gooses via their nobudge interview:

4. Do you know what credits are?

Yes. Ethan Clarke animated the title card along with Sonja Hernandez, who also designed my poster. You (Shane) did my end credits. We both discussed how we don’t like opening credits. They are very distracting to the narrative for us.

i'll be goddamned if i how i agree about this particular and esoteric matter isn't demonstrated in gooses. i also think there are indirect harmonies

i now consider gooses theatrically closed but, if you haven't watched it please do. the numbers are already in. this is a pure person-to-person moment here

a fun idea, because i just think you really gotta watch sun don't shine if you haven't already (or again if you have): consider gooses the opening cartoon to the day's who framed roger rabbit

Wow that's cool Jenkins. I had been planning to watch Sun Don't Shine for a while, this way I was able to watch it legally without spending heaps on getting a dvd shipped to me. I really enjoyed it despite having absolutely no idea what it means. As always, I'd like to say more about it. But I think it's best to let it sink in for a while. Thanks for sharing it anyways. I think I'm gonna visit nobudge a lot more now.

Oh, and good luck with your future work. Can't wait to watch whatever you guys make next.
In regards to your short film and feature and stuff.

This this, forever this! Being thrown right into a film is so much better than having to watch the names of the puppet masters before the show starts. "LOOK WE MADE THIS UP!"

On Last Rescue we had contractual obligations to have credits at the beginning. After trying to sprinkle them in throughout the opening sequence and hating what it did to the pacing, we decided the lesser evil was to create an opening titles sequence that runs before the movie proper starts. At least that way people can fast-forward through it.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

that's crazy. I know Ethan Clarke and Sonja. We used to kick it when i was just an aspiring filmmaker and they were hanging out with a guy named Jenkins. Barry Jenkins.

last year we wrote a poetry book we called frank zappa & barry manilow
that was fun and we didn't do anything with it
we just think it's a good start to the year by making a poetry book together
last year's we made by jan 1 2014
this year we finished on jan 2 because last night we decided to see the poseidon adventure and beyond the poseidon adventure instead of finishing
i think parts of me from here are in it
parts of me from life are in it
i'm pretty bleak overall i guess
morgan likes city life as much as i do
we have common angles of vision
and i forgive him and myself for our mistakes
because finishing it to start the year is the goal, that's really the only goal
i uploaded it to scribd and here's that:
http://www.scribd.com/doc/251559895/untitled

gooses won best editing at nobudge and we were fifth in highest viewings. i wanted more but my friends have reminded me how exciting that is. i guess this a toast to finishing things

Assuming the lower case ones are yours, really liked some of them. The last part of the poem that ends with the beached submarine was beautiful. Appreciated the Anne Rice one.

Congrats on the nobudge thing!

It's already got an intro:

Quote
Florianne, Alessandra’s grandma, taught herself how to write by reading Louisa May Alcott’s “Little Women”. Through Alessandra sharing some of her poems on Instagram, Shawn left a comment asking her to work with him on this book.

Proud of it since of course I am:



Not sure what'll happen with it. Not sure if it'll be published. People have begun to chat about publishing. Oh I'm such a bad adult. This is the third I've done like this. I encourage you in your lives to say "Well what's said by my friend the poet jenkins..." if you want to, which is a variation on a joke I've recently enjoyed making irl. I'm becoming much more comfortable at writing these poem things, and there's "a lot of me in this book." That's how one says that, right? "A lot of me in this book."

I think there are fun things to read since of course I do. Here's the full link:

Great, evocative cover. I've got the book open in another tab, I'll start reading through it when I have a few minutes.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

Is the "(unrelated)" thing a joke? If not, I'm confused about what it means.

The first two names are obviously related to each other and now I'm explaining a bit of a joke, yes. JB! Outta town.
