Southland Tales review 28 of 52.


One more week of this insanity and it’s back to the comfort of the home based insanity.

I feel so drained, tired, and emotional as this thing begins to wind down.

That said, if I were to be offered another away gig tomorrow I would take it because I'm also having a blast.

It’s now Sunday the 25th of August and this morning at 10:30 in the AM and I'm firing up Southland Tales for the 28th time.


And I'm back.

Now for the conclusion of my review of the YouTube review that I started last week.

Thank god that’s over.

This review went on exactly like I predicted it would.

No new insights.


It’s just a bunch of people taking turns using sarcastic voices, each more obnoxious than the last, to recap the movie in the worst attempt to try and clone the podcast How Did This Get Made.

It’s not the fact that these people are critical of the movie that bothers me, it’s the fact that there are about twelve people in this video and other than one being pretty cute none of them really had anything to say.

Oh well, I’m sure there are people out there that would say the same thing about my reviews.

Next week we go into production for my short film there’s still time to donate if you are interested.

Thanks and sorry for those who watched either parts of this YouTube review as a way to follow along with my review of it.

See you next week.

I started out with a goal of becoming a paid screenwriter. I had no interest in any other aspect of filmmaking. I received and scholarship to The Vancouver Film School's Writing for Film and Television program where I graduated in 2005. I fell in love with being on set during my first non-school produced short, . I loved being around all the creative people, seeing people having fun while working. The whole liking your job was a new world to me, so I decided to give it a shot. I volunteered for any project I could, doing what ever was needed. The set was my Film School this time. While working as a PA on a feature I was informed that the DP wanted the three tallest PAs to help out in the grip and electric department. That is when I found the department that felt like the best fit for me while I continued to write.
