Quote from: Hedwig

This may sound odd but I am actually ashamed of being a filmmaker from Miami, Florida because of Brett Ratner. Im not from New York, nor The Valley, nor Austin, Texas nor New Jersey, but from motherfucking Miami.

 :cry:


I hear you on that, but what ive come across is that when kids are about 17-18 they are really ashamed of their town(unless they won like the state football championship) and are really just ready to move on out....this goes for kids ive met alot of places on both coasts....just a matter of doing what you can where you are with what youve got...

I'm not ashamed that I'm from Michigan, I just want to make movies.

What a wasted opportunity to add "...by any means necessary."

Yes, true -- but there's just -- I don't know...when the only director you know of to come out of Miami is motherfucking Brett Ratner then there's something very - i don't know - discouraging about that.

this is the problem: all of my favorite filmmakers make movies that wreak of heritage. Alex Payne goes back to Omaha to shoot his stuff. PTA wanted to make the "quintissential Valley movie." Wes went back to his old school to shoot Rushmore. It is an inescapable fact that their work is very much inspired by where they came from.

And that's fine, except that I hate Miami. I don't like the way it looks, the way it feels to live here. I don't like the culture, and I think it'd be a rather shitty setting for a film. So -- my work is seldom fused with any heritage. And maybe that is why my Work = None.

Big Trouble...

I don't know. I kind of like suburbia as a place to make movies. There are lots of cliched things they... like.. almost everything.

yeah. also, you(Hedwig)'re making a pretty gaping generalization. just make stuff about stuff you like. even if it's stuff you like hating. it doesn't have to be a location.

Make a film about Ratner.

Seriously, though, that's a hook.  Use your hatred for Miami to make something.  Much like how modage and David Lynch hate Philadelphia -- not that they've ever made any movies about that, to my knowledge.

Miami is a very good place to make movies... it has also everything... there are actually several movies that are being shot in Miami this year... and some new TV shows

I also have 2 screenplays for movies based in Miami and they are good...

Yes, but location is very important to me in a film. You know, the movies I love the most -- the movies I am most influenced by -- the types of movies I wish to make -- are somewhat location-oriented. (Like Fargo.)

But I suppose you're right. For example, a noir piece could probably take place anywhere. It's just the Miami stereotypes that bother me. I think of Miami movies and I think of cheesy reggae muzak and sunblock-smothered beach scenes.

I also hate the word "Miami"

I have a complex, I know.

They've been shooting Transporter 2 infront of my place... I could see everything and the car crashes from my balcony...

I think that movie will suck... I can see the plot already...
