There should be some new video’s coming really soon. It’s been a pretty amazing week. I started work on Saturday. I’ve been constantly running into old friends, and I’ve been writing more. I’m taking up Ray Bradbury’s advice and writing every morning once I wake up.
I went to the Sundance ShortsLab in L.A. yesterday. It was pretty darn cool. I got to see Peter Sollett, Miguel Arteta, and Jay Duplass speak. There were tons of other cool things too. Like Jamagels! That’s right, Jamaican flavored bagels! They are amazing!
Seeing Peter Sollett’s short, “Five Feet High and Rising” in a theater was really cool.
There were also people from Paramount, YouTube, and Funny or Die.com.
And I got three business cards!
It’s funny how film crowds work. I think I finally know what those punk kids feel like when they go to concerts. It’s so easy to communicate because movies are the only thing that we know how to talk about effectively.
All in all it was a really inspiring event. Everyone hammered in the point that it just takes focus and sincerity to make quality work. It’s so easy to make films now that there’s no excuse not to be making them constantly.
