|Damn! I'm surprised I remembered the password...
or rather how may E's are in Creeeeeeee_us.
Anyways, it has been almost two years since I've posted anything to livejournal and, quite frankly, I'd forgotten all about it until P advised it for communicating the following news:
WATERMARKS, the 2006 Spring Film we did on Katrina, will be screening on Sunday, April 15 at 4:30pm in Baton Rouge at the LSU Outhouse Film Festival. Some of you guys may remember this fest from the "Mr. Universe" debut screening back in 2001. At 5:30pm there will be an awards ceremony, so stick around because the film has received nods for The Golden Outhouse, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Cinematography and Best Editing.
A full schedule of events is available on the Outhouse Myspace page (myspace.com/outhousefilmfest). This screening is free and on the big fancy screen in the Bo Campbell Auditorium (in the Cox Communications Building) on the LSU campus - so please invite your friends and most of all bring yourself. I rarely get to come home anymore and I'd like to see some familiar faces.
This film is comprised of three shorts taking place in the aftermath of Katrina. I was Camera Operator on one of the films and I was the Sound Designer for the whole piece.
Also, some time in May after finals, we'll be having a screening of this year's Spring Film for which I will be Director of Photography for the first time. I'll kepp you posted. We're shooting this weekend so pray that I don't fuck up!
Thanks guys. I hope everyone can make it to the Outhouse. Current Mood: exhausted

The semi-finished film we've been shooting (and are still shooting) will be screened at UNO on Saturday April 30th at 10am. Anyone interested in attending gimme a call and I'll tell you where it's at. Also, that same night there will be a performance at the 24-hour playfest by myself in some capacity be it acting, writing, or directing. That will be at 7pm. Current Mood: busy

|Show in the N.O.
For anyone who's interested the Album Leaf will be performing at TwiRoPa on 3-19. I know you would like them. If you haven't heard them, check out amazon and look at "one day i'll be on time". They opened for Sigur Ros and I've seen them a few time since then. Very chill. 11 bucks. They're the opening band, which is good since TwiRoPa sucks at starting on time and I have to shoot that film early the next morning and won't be able to stay out late. When we get a shooting schedule, I'll be able to know if I can go. If I can go we should go, cuz it'll be cool. We should be done shooting by 10 I think. Anyways, keep that in mind. Advance tickets are not necessary, so even if you decide to get crazy that day, it's cool. Current Mood: anxious

|It's Funny Sometimes...
So, for anyone who reads this just to play catchup: Every Year, UNO shoots a spring film with a student crew and Faculty always directs, writes, etc. Well, this semester they decided to have an all student team in which a contest is held from screenwriting class for the best script and then that script is then directed by three different student directors. Each team shoots on a different format and has a budget and crew. The best film is shown in the UNO Media Showcase and is sent to a few film festivals. (here and in Canada too I think.) Well, somehow, based on my experience and course study, they are giving me one of these directing positions. (Which scared me shitless at first.) Also, I am the only Undergrad Director. So, I'm having a meeting at this bar (our potential principle location) with my Art Director and we're sitting outside discussing, when this girl walks past. She is trashed to say the least. She stops and turns around, looks at us and says, "Do youz guys mind ifff I sit here forrr a bit. Cuz if I try to walk home I'munna fall flat on my face." Now, I have a very low tolerance for drunk strangers, so I'm kinda like "Uuuh..." and Clayton immediately is like, "Yeah, go right ahead." So, she sits and asks us if we come here often you know, basic small talk. We say no, you know, we're just here kind of talking about what we can do with this bar 'cause we're shooting this film and we might shoot here. Her eyes light up and she gets all excited 'cause everyone loves the movies in this town, especially since the boom in the past few years. So, she starts telling us what a great bar this is and how cool it would be if we shot a movie and that there are great bands there all the time and the people are cool. So, you know we tell her that we don't really want a whole lotta people 'cause we would bring our own extras and stuff. So, we keep talking and she starts telling us that she works for this record company in town that handles Big Chief and Rebirth Brass Band and alotta other big name local acts. We just so happen to be looking for a trumpet player for one of the small parts and the whole movie revolves around music basically. She says she can get us all these musicians who love doing stuff like that and for free. She is great friends with the owners of the bar that we haven't secured yet. Which is good, 'cause we only have like two thousand to spend period. Soooo, I just found it really cool that this person, who I normally would have shunned based on her physical state decided to come basically fall into our laps like that. Also, if I had been sitting there with my Cinematographer (Who had just left) instead of Clayton, he would have told her to "Piss off. We're troyin' to wek heeah." (He's Australian.) Very serendipitous, if you will. Trying not to get too excited so as to get lazy, but it's just kinda funny how things work out some times you know? Current Mood: sleepy
