"I want the actor to do it for himself. Not for me. You see, we work independently of each other with a great respect for what we are trying to say. The point is to really allow some individual to express an individual idea, thought or emotion. And then I take another person and let him or her have an individual idea or emotion. And that makes the conflict. Any conflict that would arise would be two people feeling absolutely different about the same emotion. So that you build a world of individual characters rather than characters that look all the same and where the lines can be interchangeable. I can’t have the cumulative experience of all those people on the screen; it would be impossible for me. So I chose people to act in the film who were willing to reveal something about themselves as people in front of the camera."

VOFF: How to Pass the Time

Hey Tumblr friends (that complete and totally separate group of people from my Facebook friends),

This short film I recently finished with Jordan Black and Kevin Sullivan is now available for viewing as part of the Viewster Online Film Festival (for a limited time only, while supplies last)!

Please check it out at the link above! We eagerly (desperately) seek your feedback and VOTES! If you don’t mind signing up for a free account and giving our film a five-star vote, we have that much more of a shot at taking home some sweet green that would go a long way toward helping us expand the short into a feature film.

There’s only three days left in the festival so please don’t delay and vote while there’s still time!

Thanks so much guys, now back to your regularly scheduled program of True Detective Season 2 memes and real-life headlines that sound like Onion stories!

"I respect it when the suits talk about money, when they talk about what they need so that they can get what they want. I don’t believe them when they then tell me this is how you’re gonna accomplish that creatively. I don’t believe they know because they make 20 shows a year and they throw 19 in the garbage. And if you did that at a tuna cannery no one would buy your tuna. So I don’t believe that anyone knows how to bottle television. And since nobody knows, I would like to roll my own dice."

"There’s a theory about déjà vu."

"I don’t want to hear it."

"Why do we think these things happened before? Simple. They did happen before, in our minds, as visions of the future. Because these are precognitions, we can’t fit the material into our system of consciousness as it is now structured. This is basically supernatural stuff. We’re seeing into the future but haven’t learned how to process the experience. So it stays hidden until the precognition comes true, until we come face to face with the event. Now we are free to remember it, to experience it as familiar material."

"Why are so many people having these episodes now?"

"Because death is in the air," he said gently. "It is liberating suppressed material. It is getting us closer to things we haven’t learned about ourselves. Most of us have probably seen our own death but haven’t known how to make the material surface. Maybe when we die, the first thing we’ll say is, ‘I know this feeling. I was here before.’"
