Morbid as this is, I have spent more time than I’m willing to admit wondering when we would lose our first brother. I was hoping it would be years and years later when we’ve had amazing careers and experiences and it would obviously be one of our older brothers from the first five years … More Death.
Today, I ran my very first workshop on film producing! About ten pledges and brothers showed up and I think they got a lot out of it. At least, I hope they did. I told them to send me feedback if they felt it necessary. Plus, a couple brothers who have producing experience spoke … More Workshop.
WARNING: Extreme fangirling imminent. If you’re not into that kind of thing (and I can hardly blame you), you would do well to skip the bolded paragraph below: — Before I begin, it is important to note that I am in LOVE with Robert Downey Jr. and would burn down an orphanage if it … More Review: Iron Man 3 (2013) – dir. Shane Black
Eh. This movie didn’t do too much for me at all. I’m not a huge fan of alien movies anyway (says the gal vamping up to see Star Trek: Into Darkness when it opens) and this one is no exception. A TL;DW for you: Alternating between documentary and cinematic styles, a ship of aliens … More Review: District 9 (2009) – dir. Neill Blomkamp
So, I’m not the smartest bulb in the box, or however the saying goes. But it frustrates me when I feel like I have something to contribute to something simple, like a group exercise, and no one listens. Today in lighting, for example. I thought we could use the umbrella diffusion as part of … More Frustration.
What I love the most about film that I never thought I would love the most about anything is that it’s a collaborative effort. Everybody on one project has the same vision, but is slightly or vastly different from the next person, from the writer to the producer to the director to the DP … More Solitude.
I missed the first hour and a half (so basically the first two categories) due to Joel McHale and my shame that I only saw one Oscar-nominated film this year (worst film major EVER, I know), but I seen’t enough. It’s 1:57 AM, I have homework to do still and paragraphs will just make … More The 2013 Oscars – A Revue
Say what you will about Quentin Tarantino, but if you ask me who could be more in love with cinema, I will answer you…no one but QT. Sit yourself down in front of your television or monitor, put on some Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Inglourious Basterds, etc., and sit back for two and a … More Django Unchained (2012) – A Review
Speaking of people willing to help me out, lemme tell ya ’bout my brothers: the lovely children of Lambda Kappa Tau. We’re five years old this year! Which is approximately 900 years younger than any other fraternity! But it doesn’t matter because we’re not technically Greek! Another exclamatory sentence fragment! This group changed my … More Brotherhood.
We’ll start here because it’s still happening. I’m an electronic film and media major and it scares the bejesus out of me. I know NOTHING. NOTHING. NOOOOOOTHIIIIINNGGGGG. I am immersed in this sea of knowledge, experience and expertise and I’m drowning in ineptitude. There’s just so much stuff to know and remember. It simply … More Fear.
