Versorium – short film

Ryan Smith called me up a couple months back and asked if I’d be down to jump in on this project.
I love it when people don’t just talk about making stuff . . . they pull on their boots and do it.

If you find artists who put some bite behind their bark, befriend them; work with them; learn from them.
They’re the ones who won’t still be sitting in the same place five years from now.

Portal Combat – a Film Riot short film

Check out Ryan Connolly and Film Riot‘s latest short film. I love how easy he makes things look, and then he takes the time to break it all down in what seems to be a caffeine-induced speed-talking blitz.

Keep ’em coming, man.

Interstellar

I watched “Interstellar” today, and I. can’t. stop. thinking. about. it. I may share some thoughts on it down the road if I can bring some semblance of order to the blown-apart shards of my mind. 

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

-Dylan Thomas
