I may be doing videos like this every couple of months just to let our audience know what's going on. This will not be counted as a part of our regular content, just a bit of a preview. Also, check back tomorrow for my review of Drag Me to Hell.
I could speak much longer on the subject of this film, but it's better to keep it short and sweet. Therefore here are a few other (short) thoughts and tidbits regarding this film.
The opening includes a slight reference to the Dark Tower Series of books by Stephen King.
This video is longer than I wish it was and yet still doesn't contain most of what I saw. Shame. The next time I go, I'd like to get more footage of movie locations as well as interviews with the people behind Project Twenty1. Here's to Philadelphia 2011!
The idea for this short came to me one night while my girlfriend and I were getting ready for bed. It came to me in pieces and after a few minutes I bounced a few ideas off of her and said, “What do you think?” She said, “Yeah, that could work.” We tossed a few more ideas around and I wrote up a preliminary “treatment”, so to speak, in one of my many writing journals strune about my apartment.
These past several weeks have been quite stressful for me. Between two beautiful wedding ceremonies (Congratulations Geoff, Amber, Sis and Rick!), my day job (10 hours a day is a common occurrence), looking for a new place to live (Finally got one!) and the news of attending the Philadelphia Filmathon, I've been worn down to a bloody nub.
The seed of the "Animated Monologue" as it is today began with a comic I created when I was working retail. I only did the one comic, but I had plans for others. One such idea was me on the road, in the Great Depression, getting accosted by a well known media mogul who, in the context of the story, was rather fond of stabbing hobos. (Steve and I find situations such as these hilarious for some dark and unknown reason)
