Wow... Really? Brought to You By Me

I just got done watching Morgan Spurlock's film, "The Greatest Movie Ever Sold," and I have to tell you I'm not really sure I can ever get a film made without product placement! lol

Now I do believe it can be done and I will continue to make films because I love it, but this film gives you a whole different look at product placement. It's funny and scary at the same time.

I guess since I still have some work to do on my DVD for "3 days... 3 hours... 3 minutes... 3 seconds..." I hope folks will watch and buy the film even without any big... or for that matter any endorsements!

I will think about this process now more when I start my next film, but I do believe... or maybe it's more of a hope... I do hope filmmakers... artist can make their films because of the passion they have for the process and story.... and that's MY story and I'm sticking to it!

I Don't Always Understand... But I Try!

Just got done watching the 2007 documentary, "Lynch." Now I love films about "process" and so I was hoping this would be a slice into the mind of David Lynch... a director I enjoy a lot of his projects.

Well I have to admit, I think I may be a little more confused than anything, but at least I am intriqued. David Lynch is one odd fellow and I mean that in the best way possible. It's an odd film and an interesting look into some of how he works. The one thing I really took away from the film is that he is an artist and creates work in so many different mediums... something I admire and something I need to do more of!

So I'll use this film as motivation to see if I can get some kind of creative rythmn this week that will then turn into multiple weeks... months and who knows how long. So two blog posts in one night... here and at Ketch-Fraze... that's a start... let's see how the REST of the week turns out.

P.S. I still am working on "3 Days..." I WILL make something happen soon with it.

Got to Get More Active!

I know, I know, I know... I need to do more with my blog on a regular basis, so I'm trying that tonight. Right now, getting ready to check out the HBO Documentary, "Sex Crime Unit." It's the second straight documentary I've seen from HBO in two nights. Last night's choice, "Bobby Fischer Against the World."

I've made a couple of docs in my past, mainly companion pieces to features I've made, but I like what HBO is doing and who knows maybe one day I'll try a full fledged doc on my own!

Getting Closer and Closer...

OK so I'm spending some time knocking out editing on, "3 Days..." See... here are the pics to prove it! The last couple of weeks I've tried to sit down and get some work done, there's been a lot going on to delay me, but not today.

Plugging away and it feels good! Hey are you following me on Twitter yet?

Make sure you do... it's simple, just come over and hit me up at:

Making a dent in a lot of things!

OK, so just saw another Academy Award nominated film, that's two this week, three if you take it back to last weekend when I finally saw, "The Social Network." And yes, I did like it and can see why it's getting a big Oscar Buzz. I love Aaron Sorkin's writing, it takes me back to just how good, "West Wing" use to be. Top picture of the year? Depends on who really comes out to vote, if they're under 40 perhaps, over I think it will go to "The King's Speech."

Now I started the week with, "Winter's Bone." Really good film, but an even better performance by John Hawkes who, in my estimation, should win the Academy Award for "Best Supporting Performance by a male."
I first discovered him awhile back on "Deadwood," and have loved watching him work ever since. He's also pretty good in, "Eastbound & Down," on HBO.
But in "Winter's Bone," His portrayal as "Teardrop" in this film is outstanding! A little scary, but he has that kind of William H. Macy kind of a thing going, in that when he's on the screen or slated to be in a film, you want to see him work. He'll do little things to inhabit his characters and they work so well.

The other AA film I saw this week... today actually, "The King's Speech."Very good film... a safe Hollywood voters kind of a film.(See above) I liked Colin Firth, who I believe will come away with the Oscar in this one, but probably more
so for his performance last year in "A Single Man," more so than this years role. He's good in this, but better in "A Single Man." I just think the nature of that film was a little tough for folks to deal with.

Now the reason why I'm able to write so much right now is because I am also getting tons of work done on the "3 Days..." DVD which as we speak is rendering another file, which takes a long time so in between I'm catching you all up on what's going on.

So that's what I'm up to... 4 AA films down, more to go... going to try to see as many before the big night! One day... oh one day.

Found a New Spot!

Check out my new mobile office! Pretty cool huh? Well we'll see how it goes, this is a new place and just doing some work here for the first time, we'll see how the vibe is. So far so good, although I guess the ultimate test is to see how much work I'm actually able to knock out... that's when I'll know if this place will go into the natural writing rotation.

Also starting my push to see as many Academy Award nominated films before the big night. It's going to be tough considering I've only seen one so far, "Inception," but we'll see what I can do about it. On the plate tonight, "The Kids Are Alright."

Anyway, I have a ton of stuff to do, from DVD things to some tax prep, to working on some future projects, so let's see how day one in the new spot feels.

Peace... for now!

The End is in Sight!

Spent a lot of quality time working on the, "3 days..." DVD and it's coming out great! I can't wait to put the finishing touches on the project. Keeping it real, this bad boy should be done and ready by the end of February and that will make me and everyone very, very happy!

As I've been putting together all of the elements and some of the very special elements, I'm reminding just how hard we worked on the project and how proud I really am of it. I hope when it's all said and done and you place your orders for the DVD and pick it up, you'll appreciate it as well!

2011... Bring it on! Let's do this thing!

OK, I'm pulling for a great 2011! In a lot of respects, 2010 was a very difficult year, but some times you have to go through tough times and I believe that's what 2010 was all about. I came out on the other side in decent shape. The company has some great things planned for 2011 so if we can make them happen, that will be great!

So with a positive attitude I lift my cup of coffee from my mobile office where I am working today and toast you and yours! 2011 is going to be a great one for Triple Sticks Productions and we hope you'll be with us for the ride!
