Yep you read it right. That's the Portland International Short Short Film Fest. The Kids Of Widney High video's in it this year. I've always wanted to visit Portland but I don't think I can make it this time. Any of you want to go as the OFFICIAL REPRESENTATIVE of the video? You will have to shave your head and pretend you're me for the Q & A.

Wrapping Up The Valley Film Fest
 
 
Sep. 17th, 2006  11:27 pm
I just got back from the Valley Film Fest award ceremony. One of the fun parts of being one of the judges is that you get to do the whole open the envelope and announce the awards thing. It's just like the Oscars, except I don't get to wear a low-cut sequin gown.

But the best part is I got to see a bunch of good films (and even more bad ones). Two shorts to look out for: Fancy produced by Tanya Bershadsky and Eating Alone by Ron Moon.

So I've been working on some temp art for Ratsnitch Angel. Here it is. You likey? Any of you badass graphic designers care to give any input?

Ratsnitch Angel at the Egyptian!

hey kids,

so here's the skinny. as you may have heard, The Ratsnitch Angel, that creepy little film of mine, is screening at the Hollywood Egyptian next week. if you come, i'll be you're best friend forever and let you cut me in line at the cafeteria and everything. okay well maybe i won't, but if you keep reading i'll tell you how to save a few bucks the night of the event.

first, i have to say having my film screened at American Cinematech's Egyptian is like a dream come true. if you've never been there, you're in for a real treat. it's a historical landmark (DeMille's Ten Commandments and Robin Hood premiered there) and truly one of the most beautiful theaters i've been in. over 600 seats...huge screen...you really should go at least once in your life.

Sour cream first, THEN tacos
 
 
Aug. 8th, 2006  02:15 am
Thanks to Michel Ghondry and the marketing campaign for his new film, I can satisfy my dream-voyeur cravings with thescienceofsleep.imeem.com. People post their dreams and other people rate them. It's like the am-i-hot-or-not of surreality. Neat, huh?

My favorite so far:
"The dream started off with me and my friend Sara in a room at a party making out. All of a sudden, vampires burse through the door to attack us, but Blade popped out of the closet and defeated them. BUT, it wasn't the real Blade, but a white guy wearing brown face and body paint. I said "You're not Blade" and in a very Mr. T like voice said "Nigger, I'm Blade, we gots to go to New York." At that point everything turned into like it was being drawn by an eight year old with a crayon, except for the people. Next thing I knew, I was in a buffet line. Howard Stern was to the right of me talking about porn stars, and to the left of me was a stick figure that was really excited because there were tacos, and he was going to put sour cream on them. But in the buffet line, the order went sour cream THEN tacos, so he had to put sour cream on his plate, then tacos, then transfer the sour cream. This made him sad and he sang a song about having cold tacos"

And by the way, if you plan to dream-watch on your own, the best time to catch someone is right after they wake up. Shake them violently and say "What did you dream? What did you dream?" That way the sticky residue of their subconscious will still be fresh and they will remember all the little details.

Where the hell have I been?

and here.


They were all taken in NYC. I haven't seen a bunch of you in a while and been missin' yas quite a bit. I guess I've just been spending too many long nights working in the laboratory. So what else is new? My sister just got married, hence the quick trip back home. Didn't spend much time in the city but got to hang out with the very awesome World Famous Bob at the Misss LEZ Pageant.

What else? well if you watch the World Of Wonder podcasts, you'll see me at the Frontier's party, drunkenly yammering about some past sexual encounter that turned real bloody, and if you watch MusicPlusTV.com, you caught me being interviewed on The Irregular Show. I had a blast, thanks to Shok and Legion.

That's it for now. Kiss-kiss.

Why have I never seen this movie?

Wacky 80's hair styles + stripper-vampires + Grace Jones = AWESOME. Oh yeah, and LONG DUCK DONG plays the supporting role.

Grace wears a different outfit in every scene, each one just gets crazier and crazier, and a stripper just got killed with her stiletto shoe.

Playmates at the Echo Park Film Center
 
 
Apr. 13th, 2006  01:26 am
Playmates...



...A 'heartwarming' story about a girl, her doll and the man in the park stalking them.

Screened at Apocalipstick, the Sleaze-Z film fest, and in art galleries along side the work of Clive Barker.
The fine folks at Filmmakers Alliance asked me to screen one of my films at their event. Of course, I decided to show Playmates, one of my filthiest works ever, not because of it's extreme sordidness but because I shot it years ago on super-8 film, which is perfect given the location of the event. If you're a local filmmaker and you don't know about FA or the Echo Park Film Center, this is the perfect opportunity for you to find out about both groups and watch some short films at the same time.

FA and EPFC are both incredible resources for indie filmmakers based in Los Angeles. FA is a huge group of active filmmakers working both in and outside the industry. Jacques, one of the founders, just got a short in Sundance. EPFC, on the other hand, is like the YMCA of filmmaking; they offer cheap equipment rental and services to filmmakers who need it. If you have any desire to shoot super-8, grab a napkin before checking out their website because you will drool my friend, you will drool. They also teach filmmaking to neighborhood kids, which is why all of the proceeds from this event are going right back to EPFC.

I can't say Playmates is my most technically brilliant film, but hey, it's a 5-minute crowd-pleaser. I'll be doing a Q & A afterwards, so come by and ask me embarrassing questions. I'm thinking of telling the story of how I dressed up as a woman so I could enroll at Curves gym.

Hosted by : Filmmakers Alliance and Echo Park Film Center

Location:
The Echo Park Film Center
1200 N Alvarado Street
Los Angeles, CA

When:
Monday, April 17, 7:30pm

Come and see what your local filmmakers are up to creatively, and support the great work that the EPFC people are doing in our community. There is a brief Q&A after each film, not to mention complimentary food & drinks.

Note: I think they ask for a donation-at-the-door type of thing. or maybe like 5 bucks or something. It's unfortunately not in any of the info they gave me.


The film line up:

"Playmates" - dir by Michael Medaglia

"Punk Wall" - dir by Karen Glienke
