goingforpicture: 1/8, 2/8, 3/8, 4/8, 5/8, 6/8, 7/8, 1 page, 1 1/8 pages, 1 2/8 pages, 1 3/8 pages, etc… If you’re not familiar with performing a script breakdown, hearing how long a scene is by the number of 8ths it runs can be really confusing. Film scheduling goes like this: 1 script page roughly equals one…

So, for my film school-y type film that we’ve completed, I’m now in charge of “social media,” which includes creating a website. Anyone got tips on doing that? I was thinking about just doing a tumblr, ya know, but I’m not sure how good of an idea that is… Just finished recording a podcast Echo and I did on Henri-Georges Clouzot’s Inferno. I’m...
The Golden Globes Will Surely Predict The Oscars

This is why we keep talking about gender in comedy →
This article at Feministing is about this profile on Eddie Brill, who books the Tonight Show with David Letterman. Both articles are worth your time. As I’ve recently become a gigantic fan of Cameron Esposito, I recall hearing her on a podcast saying that she was auditioning for Letterman (Tig Nataro is also referenced in the article as someone who has been turned down). Clearly, she...

Mini Reviews: 12/25-1/8/2011
16 Mini Reviews! For some reason I thought this was a good idea! Hugo: B This was the first film that I’ve seen in 3D that resulted in an actual headache. Now, don’t get me wrong, the film is beautiful…however, the declaration of this film being a beautiful 3D film is a little overstated. The blurring involved in the movement of the camera and the 3D imagery can be really...
What a way to spend an afternoon doing research.
Leaking to the Stars? →
Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., announced on Thursday that he has been successful in his four-month-old effort to trigger an inspectors general investigation of CIA and Pentagon contacts with Academy Award-winning director Kathryn Bigelow as she prepares her highly anticipated film on the raid that killed Osama bin Laden. An equally absurd and fascinating little blurb.
Gleaming Faces, Dark Realities: Dušan Makavejev’s... →
I watched Man is Not a Bird yesterday and I was left conflicted. I didn’t really leave the film being satisfied with the representation of women in the film. Makavejev’s gaze is pretty intense, and this film has one of the creepier sex scenes I’ve seen in a film (However, not graphic at all…just, kind of creepy). However, I also know very little about the Black Wave, and I...
New Year, New Introduction
Hey, everybody. I’ve gotten a pretty steady flow of new followers these past couple days, and that’s awesome. Thanks for following! I’m not sure if I have a an actual Intro page, but if I do, I’m too lazy to find it. So… Hey, I’m Matt. I’m a 22 year old senior film theory student who is also in a film production program at my university. I’m...
Triggering Movies, Books, etc. →
“This page was created because I got tired of being “ambushed” by books and movies with triggering topics. This list was compiled by survivors and allies to warn survivors about triggering material. This is by no means a list of books and movies to avoid, as many are wonderful and can help you on your healing journey. Of course, some of them are crap. Either way, it is important to prepare...
