in which i un-ironically like something from the Christian subculture

There are a lot of things I like to make fun of / gnash my teeth over in the Christian subcultureperhaps most notably the very existence of a Christian subculture, which carries with it a circled-wagons mentality that inevitably curb-stomps anyone who's really honest about their humanity.

There are also a number of things from that subculture that I quite enjoy. In secret. Half-ironically. Because when you're born into something and marinated in it for all your formative years, you just are that thing, and you like it even though you know it's kind of cheesy and stupid.

But there are also aspects of the Christian subculture that I really, honestly do like.

multitudinous millinery

On June 12th my first feature film, PINK, went into production.
On July 12th (yesterday) we wrapped principal photography.

So ended one month of lugging around a satchel bulging with hats.

Hats! Hats! Hats!

Here's my producer hat! Here's my wardrobe department hat! Here's my props hat! Here's my set dressing hat! Here's my payroll hat! Here's my craft services hat! Here's my catering hat! Here's my locations manager hat! Here's my personnel department hat! Here's my stand there with a blank look and get chewed out hat!

Now I get to put my Creative Writing Hat back on.

Let the scribbling recommence!

Our film has a cast!

Well now then. 

In less than a week, my first-to-be-produced feature film is going to start getting produceticated, and I don't know whether I'm freaked out, or happy, or in complete emotional denial. 

I'm certainly not blogging on here, or writing much of anything other than emails, emails, and more emails, in between trips to dumpsters to get used cardboard for the production (fun fact: employees of big box stores maybe sometimes throw stuff out all wrapped up nicely, so they can come get it later. Thanks for the brand-new comforter set, disgruntled-and-ethically-challenged employee-person). 

The point! The point!

The point is that I wanted to show you our super-amazing cast, on account of they're amazing. You can learn more about them over at www.pinkthefilm.com - but here you go...

Let's make stuff!

I heartily endorse the checking out of this video. Yes, it's a kickstarter video. But it's also a beautiful creative jump-start for all you artists out there, from a guy who grew up where I did in the Peruvian amazon. Huzzah! Let's make stuff!

please assume a holding pattern at bearing one-six-niner-tango-alpha-foxtrot-zulu-bee-bop-a-reeno... etc.

This is my brain on film-production.

[ insert loud buzzing noise ]

With principal photography on PINK starting two weeks from tomorrow, I'm juggling forty-two acid-filled water balloons and working from dawn to zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Don't worry. In the words of General Douglas A. MacArthur said in 1942 to the people of the Phillipines when forced by executive order to abandon his post, "I'll be back."

Or wait. No.

That was the governor of California.

Or something.

Everything & Everything & Everything

I've waited AGES for this short to be available online so I could show it to you.
Now it is.
So now I can.
So watch it, already!
It's a little surrealist and weird, but also beautiful (and starring Shane Carruth) and profound.
