Perfume Genius- Queen

So, so good.

See the person in the green shirt at the bottom left corner? That’s me!
These past two months or so I’ve been working on a film, AD’ing in pre-production and just wrapped on our film yesterday. It was grueling…AD work is not my favorite, but it was certainly a blast, with easily the most talented crew I’ve worked with.
So, now I’m sitting here, a little bummed that I’m not engaged in any projects. Here’s a secret: I made a goal this year to work on three projects this year. The year’s only halfway through and I’ve accomplished this. What once felt like an absurd and lofty goal has been easily accomplished.
I guess I need to get back on my horse and re-read some scripts I’ve written.

Hey, everybody. I’ve been ADing on a film recently. We begin shooting next week. It’s exciting. I’m very tired.
In the meantime, while this upcoming event on Monday is almost sold out, I wanted to let any and all Chicagoans that follow me to check out this short film fest that Pride Films and Plays is putting on. The most recent episode of Skyrider Films’ Coffee Talk Series (I directed and co-wrote the final episode) will be premiering at the event!
That is all.

“Bringing in a Strong Female Character™ isn’t actually a feminist statement, or an inclusionary statement, or even a basic equality statement, if the character doesn’t have any reason to be in the story except to let filmmakers point at her on the poster and say ‘See? This film totally respects strong women!’”

Many modern action movies, including How To Train Your Dragon 2, are visibly trying to make their female characters more than trophies and set dressing. But all the strength and nuance in the world isn’t meaningful if those characters don’t have any plot purpose. Tasha Robinson breaks down how “Trinity Syndrome” is turning Strong Female Characters into Superfluous, Flimsy Characters. [Read more…]

Eg: Sausage Delivery Man
Matt Davis
April 2014

Burgundy and Paprika on blue paper.

Now available in the store

You feel something warm inside your pocket. You reach in and pull out a small breakfast sausage. A message is engraved into the meat: “Buy yourself a new zine today." You think back to a video you watched not too long ago, and how you acted out a certain sausage delivery man’s day, alone in your apartment, along with the people on the screen, as if it was some sort of perverse exercise tape. You sit down at your computer and immediately click the link above and place an order. Why tempt fate?

5-7 days later a parcel arrives at your doorstep. You open it, and, nestling into your favorite armchair, find yourself, for once, actually and truly content. Perfect.

Matthew Wrobel raised acoustic chaos before rampaging through the audience, accompanied by co-readers Emily Liles, Lindsay Mallard, Alyx Ross, and Taylor Normington on drums, exclaiming a medley of statements regarding the cold shoulder of urban industrialism at Brain Frame LIt 2 on April 2nd, 2014.

Video thanks to Burton Bilharz.

That’s us! As indiscernible as I had hoped.
