Parasite is a movie that grows on you but leaves you a bit empty in the end. This film bites into all the elements of greatness including having a fast pace , unique characters, a great buildup and a subtle message on society as a whole. The only problem is that the build up leads to an ending that should have been cut in the editing room. This occurred in my other favorite Oscar Nominated “The Irishman” which dragged on a bit too long. In the end I would be happy to see “Parasite” win best movie of the year if only because it ate at my very being although a bit longer then it should.
I have several hard copy full length scripts that I would consider for my next project. The problem is that with the cost of producing a film and the chances of loses in revenue great I’m really not sure where to go if at all. Of course for the “art” I’d love to see them all in a frame but then I wouldn’t have a house to hang them from. Here are those in consideration comments appreciated.
ASU 2 1/2 TRADING PLACES FOR REAL- A factory worker and employer discover what it is like to live in each others bodies as an Elephant Beetle tranforms their life’s for real.
- Predictable but w twist 1. Predictable story
- Building on ASU 2. Locations difficult and expensive
- Heart warming 3. Trapped in one film format
HELL CAN WAIT…PLEASE!!!- Dan has 24 hours to change himself through another person’s body or face eternal damnation
- Hysterical 1. Confusing for Audience
- Unique 2. Challenging locations/acting difficulties
IT’S A WONDERFUL RING- A ring brings magical powers to a young boys life but with that power comes destruction.
- First X-Mas/Chanukah Movie 1. Type cast as a film-maker
- Big Market for such movies 2. A bit drawn out in parts-lecturing
MINDERELLA- It’s a punk version of Cinderalla
- Audience knows basic story 1. Audience knows basic story
- Musical score 2. Cost of Musical Score
- Dark 3. Shocking could be offensive ending
SEDUCTION- A woman has the power of a drug to intoxicate a simple man into a monster or….
- Sex Sells 2. Moral dilemna in the home front.
ZOMBIE THE TRUTH- People are told to leave a hurricane zone but it’s not the rain and wind that do the killing.

Killers (the short) is now in the coffin or can if like and G-D willing will come out of that grave to see you real soon. It took 5 hours to produce a 5 minute at max film short because all the weapons needed to be throughly sharpened. In the next month or 2 we will edit said project so that it can bring new life to some older established artists who we pray will be dying to shoot it. “KILLERS” the short worth gunning for.
I have a great script, new talent, a basic budget, experience now all I need is this one individual to jump aboard for this ship to sail. He’s a very talented individual who has years of experience behind the camera as well as editing it’s work afterwards and I believe this project will give him just the push to move ahead during a difficult period in his life. I won’t push him if he’s not up to it but if he is then before you know it we can shout ACTION and my next film project will be under way.
You’re invited to the “Private Party” everyone is talking about even if you can’t get through the front door with “PARTY” the show. This show will take you into some of the most exclusive and/or crazy parties from the preparations until they’ve dragged out the last dancer or whatever he is doing. You will feel as if you’re dancing on the ceiling as the build up to the big event is finally there. “PARTY” the show because even though you’re invitation got lost in the mail there’s no reason you can’t join in the fun.
KKK Horror will be one of the most scary movies of a lifetime because their hooded past is true and painful. It will take some of their most despicable acts and blend it in a movie that shows the fear this hate group brought on individual life’s from outside their mainstream to all different creeds and cultures. KKK was one of the first terrorist organizations in America that wielded power in police stations and political officers at their prime. Their hoods allowed them to live one life which appeared warm and kind in the open and another of evil violence when it was closed. KKK Horror a movie that should be feared because it’s all true and painful.
FOOTNOTE- The concept of this film came to me in a nightmare where I saw three men hung from a tree as I was the one they were looking for next.
ILLEGAL will be the miniseries that truly explores the good, bad and ugly of those that cross our border illegal. From the young man struggling to find a life in a new country to the person looking to make a profit on another’s misery and finally to the drug dealer looking for another avenue to distribute his products. Plus all the people impacted in between their struggles, gains and loses. ILLEGAL their story should be told even if it’s not what you’ve been told.
Great Acting and a great soundtrack doesn’t necessarily make a great movie but it helps make it a very good movie. Nocturnal Animals is such a film that has many artistic angles that don’t get fully painted to become a Picasso. The inner film based on the script the main character is reading is flawless but the one who is reading is a very flawed character who loses empathy from the viewer. Once that occurs the overall film loses the pull and ends where we really don’t care about the person we should care the most about.
