Filmmaking Update

Last year, around this time, I made the short film Poetic Justice, about a team of famous poets in an action movie fighting Grammar Nazis. It’s here.

Observe the uncorrected fish-eye lens. Observe the poor sound quality, and occasional failures of dubbing over. Observe the lighting. It’s all poor. The acting is, over all, decent. The script, in my humble opinion, is awesome. But the film seems painfully low-rent.

It’s too sophomoric — not in the college sense of the word, since I made it when I was a junior, but you get the point. Then, I was an apprentice. A junior filmmaker, if you will. In both senses of the word, this time. Anyway. I digress. My point is, I love the script, but dislike the rest. So this spring, I’ll be remaking the film.

This is happening in tandem with another film that won’t be happening: Flux|Flow. The anime-inspired time travel story ended up being too difficult to pull together in one semester, and the guys behind it are busy themselves. I am planning on using their cinematography skills for my remake, though. And their style is pretty classy:

And none of this has anything to do with the film fest selections for this semester, which include both my buddy cop one and the Flux|Flow guys’ untitled one.
